Feb. 25, 2007

Final Stats

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Robert McKiver scored a game-high 32 points, but didn't have any help as Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 19 points to lead No. 7 Memphis to a 77-64 victory over the University of Houston men's basketball team on Sunday, at the Fed Ex Forum.

In addiiton to Douglas Roberts scoring 19 points, Joey Dorsey added 16 points and 10 rebounds to for the Tigers (25-3, 14-0), who extended the nation's longest winning streak to 17 games. Memphis also won its 29th consecutive home game.

The Cougars used a pesky defense at the start of the game, and pressured Memphis out of its offensive rhythm. In the first 13 minutes of the game, Houston picked up the Tigers at halfcourt and pushed them outside their normal offensive sets. That forced Memphis to miss seven straight shots, and enabled the Cougars to take a 21-19 lead on Dion Dowell's three-pointer with just over nine minutes left in the half.

But, Memphis closed the half with an 18-5 run to seize control of the game and put it out of reach.

Memphis was leading 48-32, when McKiver scored 10 of his points in a two-minute span to help Houston (15-13, 9-5) cut the lead to nine, 51-42 with 12:33 left to play. Those 10 points gave McKiver 25 of Houston's 42 points at the time.

But, that was as close as the Cougars would get as Douglas-Roberts answered with a jump shot and made one of his two free throws for the Tigers. Willie Kemp nailed a three-point shot from the right baseline as Memphis never looked back.

The Tigers extended their lead to 21, 77-56, with 1:39 left to play before McKiver and Tafari Toney hit back-to-back three-point shots. Toney also added two free throws to make the final score, 77-64.
