Pittsburgh Tribune-Review on Memphis 78, Nevada 62

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Memphis 78, Nevada 62

In New Orleans, John Calipari's Memphis Tigers finally have a victory worth bragging about in their run of 24 straight. Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 16 points before leaving with a sprained ankle, and his high-flying, versatile teammates took over from there. The second-seeded Tigers (32-3) hadn't played a team as good as the Wolf Pack (29-5) since their last loss to Arizona, back on Dec. 20. They showed they were up to the task by never trailing after going down, 2-0, and shutting out the Wolf Pack the final 6:17. Jeremy Hunt scored 16, and Antonio Anderson added 14 points and 10 rebounds for Memphis. Nick Fazekas, the three-time Western Athletic Conference player of the year, missed his first six shots but finished 7 of 18 for 20 points with seven rebounds.
