DALLAS (AP) -Derek Williams scored 25 points and Papa Dia added 23 points and 17 rebounds to lead SMU to a 70-60 victory against Memphis on Saturday.
Williams was 5 of 13 from the floor and 14 of 15 from the free-throw line for the Mustangs (10-10, 3-3 Conference USA), who outscored Memphis 45-30 in the second half.
Elliot Williams had 19 points and Roburt Sallie 17 for the Tigers (15-6, 5-2).
An Elliot Williams field goal made the score 50-48 in SMU's favor with 4:34 remaining, but the Mustangs went on a 6-0 run and protected the lead with free throws down the stretch.
After a 64-game Conference USA winning streak that ended on Jan. 20, Memphis has lost two of its last four league contests.
