Jeremy Hunt and Chris Douglas-Roberts each scored 21 points to lead the Memphis Tigers to a hard-fought victory over UTEP in El Paso. Hunt a pair of three-pointers late in the game that allowed Memphis to finally pull away from the tougher-than-expected Miners.

The Tigers led by four at halftime and couldn't pull away until nearly the five-minute mark. UTEP closed to within one point on several occasions but could never take the lead.

Memphis shot free throws at an abysmal 45 percent rate, but shot 40 percent on three-pointers and outrebounded UTEP 39-28.
