Memphis wins 4th straight C-USA tourney title

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Tyreke Evans scored 18 points and Robert Dozier added 18 points and 14 rebounds Saturday, leading No. 4 Memphis past Tulsa 64-39 for its fourth straight Conference USA tournament title.

The Tigers (31-3) extended the nation's longest winning streak to 25 and won their 61st straight league game. Memphis, last year's national runner-up, hasn't lost since Dec. 20 to Syracuse.

Fans started chanting "No. 1 seed, No. 1 seed" in the final minutes.

Antonio Anderson added 12 points and Doneal Mack had 11 for Memphis, which padded its NCAA record of wins during this 4-year run to 135.

The Tigers ended a 7-game wining streak for Tulsa (24-10), which was led by reserve Glenn Andrews with 13 points.
