Tigers Claim Outright C-USA Title

Posted: Updated:

Coming off their first loss since mid December, the Memphis Tigers go right back to work at UCF Saturday.

Memphis came in having already wrapped up the top seed for the upcoming CUSA tournament, and a share of the regular season conference title.

Despite the Knights opening up with an 8-0 lead, the Tigers rally early to win 76-67 and claim their 8th outright league title.

The Tigers improve to 25-4 overall, 14-0 in CUSA.

Joe Jackson and Chris Crawford both scored 19 points and Adonis Thomas added 12 points for the Tigers, who gave coach Josh Pastner his 100th career win, all at Memphis.

Keith Clanton had 29 points and six rebounds for UCF.

Memphis is at UTEP on Tuesday, their final road trip of the regular season.
