R.L. Horton led the Golden Eagles (16-12, 6-8) with 24 points, and tried to rally Southern Mississippi with a trio of 3-pointers in the final 2 minutes. But Memphis had built a 12-point lead and Horton's shooting wasn't enough.

Josimar Ayarza scored 14 for Southern Mississippi, while Gary Flowers scored 13 points and grabbed 13 rebounds before fouling out with 1:34 left.

The Tigers erased an 11-point first half deficit and the two teams stayed even until an 8-0 Memphis run midway through the second half broke open a 45-45 tie.
