MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -Robert Dozier scored 15 points and Shawn Taggart and Tyreke Evans both added 12 as No. 23 Memphis weathered a late rally to hold on for a 59-51 victory over Arkansas-Little Rock on Wednesday night.
Dozier missed only one of his four shots from the field and was 9-of-12 from the line as the Tigers (6-2) rebounded from a 79-70 overtime loss at Georgetown on Saturday.
Memphis appeared to be in control, leading by 18 points with just under 10 minutes left. But a rally by the Trojans that included 3-pointers from Curtis Jackson, Matt Mouzy and Steven Moore cut the deficit to 51-45 with 2:26 left.
UALR (7-3) got within five points on several occasions late, but Memphis was able to hold on down the stretch, despite not scoring from the field over the final 8:07.
Moore led UALR with 16 points.
