MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) The Memphis Tigers made a definitive statement early to show they weren't going to have a letdown after a big win in their last game.
Shaq Goodwin scored a career-high 21 points, Memphis shot 54 percent and the No. 16 Tigers defeated Northwestern State 96-76 on Saturday. It was a carryover from the Tigers avenging their only loss of the season by beating No. 9 Oklahoma State 73-68 last Sunday to win the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla.
"For the past week, we've been preaching carryover and not slacking off," said Goodwin, who finished 8 of 11 from the field. "Everyone knows when you come off a big win, you can't lay an egg."
