    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Kelly Wise scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds Saturday night as Memphis defeated Houston 72-68.

    Wise led five Tigers in double figures as Memphis (10-8, 4-1 Conference USA) won its sixth straight.

    Scooter McFadgon finished with 14, while Marcus Moody and Shyrone Chatman scored 12 each. Shannon Forman had 11 points, and Chatman added seven assists.

    Dominic Smith led Houston (4-12, 1-3) with a game-high 20 points, while Marcus Oliver finished with 12. George Williams had 11 points, a game-high 11 rebounds and five assists for the Cougars.

    Houston led by seven, 41-34, at the half and held a 44-39 lead with just under 15 minutes to play.

    But Memphis went on a 19-6 run to erase the deficit and build a 58-50 lead with 7:11 to play. McFadgon scored nine in the streak to key the Tiger comeback.

    Memphis maintained leads of six to eight points through most of the remainder of the game, and eventually held a 10-point lead, 66-56, when Moody scored on an 8-footer in the lane with 1:45 remaining.

    But Houston, behind baskets by Patrick Okafor and a pair of 3-pointers by Dominic Smith and Torrence Botts, cut the lead to 68-66 with 16.1 seconds to play. Chatman and Moody hit two free throws each in the final seconds to preserve the victory.

    Neither team shot well in the game, with Houston connecting on 39.7 percent of its field goals, and Memphis hitting 36.1 percent. Houston, which outrebounded the Tigers 43-37, but was hurt by 15 turnovers compared to nine for Memphis.
