MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Memphis Tigers went to work early to get rid of the bitter taste from the end of their perfect season.Willie Kemp scored 14 points and keyed a first-half rally, leading the Tigers (No. 3 ESPN/USA Today, No. 2 AP) to an 82-67 victory over Tulsa on Wednesday night in their first game since their only loss of the season.
On The Rebound
Memphis bounced back with a vengeance against Tulsa after its crushing loss at home to Tennessee on Saturday. Against the Volunteers, the Tigers couldn't crack 30 percent from 3-point range, 40 percent from the floor, and 50 percent from the line. That all changed against the Golden Hurricane.
