Two weeks ago, you might have thought the world was coming to an end for the Tigers, who had a less than stellar showing in the Bahamas.

Fast forward to now, a few wins later, and all is well in Tiger Nation with Memphis dominating in it's last two games.

Facing Austin Peay in their latest match up, the Tigers take care of business.

Tarik Black with 18 points, Geron Johnson adding 14 and Memphis built a double-digit first-half lead to beat the Governors 83-65.

The Tigers (6-2) shoot 52.1 percent for the game to offset 27 from Peay's Travis Betran. 

Joe Jackson added 12 points for the Tigers, and D.J. Stephens had 10.

Memphis' next contest is at home, Saturday, December 15th against Louisville.
