MEMPHIS, Tenn. - No. 4/3 Memphis broke open a close game with a 27-0 run early in the second half on the way to a 74-49 win against the University of Houston men's basketball team during the Conference USA Tournament semifinals at FedExForum on Friday afternoon.

Trailing 34-22 at the halftime break, the Cougars pulled to within 10 points when junior guard Kelvin Lewis was fouled and drilled both free throws at the 19:48 mark of the second half. However, that would be the last points the Cougars would score until Lewis hit a jumper with 9:56 left in the contest to pull UH to within 61-26.

Playing their second game in less than 24 hours, the Cougars were limited to 34.0 percent from the field, while the Tigers converted 45.0 percent.

Lewis led the Cougars with 18 points, including three 3-pointers, while junior guard Aubrey Coleman added 14 points and four assists.

Forward Robert Dozier scored 16 points to lead four Tigers in double digits with Shawn Taggart, Doneal Mack and Wesley Witherspoon added 10 points apiece.

Memphis improved to 30-3 overall and won its 24th straight game, the nation's longest active winning streak. The Cougars made their third appearance in the C-USA Tournament semifinals in the last four seasons and fell to 21-11.
