The Memphis Tigers overcame horrendous free-throw shooting (7-17) and a tenacious Southern Cal triangle-and-two defense to defeat the Trojans in the Jimmy V Classic in Madison Square Garden, 62-58.

Robert Dozier led Memphis with 13 points and 8 rebounds, followed by Chris Douglas-Roberts with 10 points and 9 boards. Freshman sensation O.J. Mayo led SC with 16 points and 5 rebounds, but the Tigers superior rebounding (46-29) led to numerous second-chance points as Memphis wore down their opponent in overtime.
