If someone wanted to make excuses for the University of Memphis Tigers, they could say, "Well, it was a road game." Sure it was, but coming off last Saturday's 94-64 victory over Tulsa, a more worthy adversary, Memphis' most recent victory was far from an inspiring performance.
On the road in Dallas, the Tigers came away with a very unimpressive win (60-52) against a middle of the road C-USA opponent – Southern Methodist University – on Wednesday night.
SMU's Mustangs only had the lead once in the game and it was during the first few minutes of the contest. Yet, the Tigers allowed the Mustangs to hang around late in the game.
