Murray State beats #21 Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Donte Poole connected on a career-high six

3-pointers and 20 points as Murray State remained undefeated with a

76-72 victory over No. 21 Memphis on Sunday night.

The Racers (10-0) took control early then had to weather a late

Memphis rally to hold on for the victory. Murray State was up 71-60

with just under 2 minutes left before Memphis (5-3) scored eight

straight points to make it a one-possession game.

The Tigers trailed 73-72 with 14 seconds left. But Isaiah

Canaan, who had 15 points, connected on two free throws with 7.9

seconds left and the Racers remained one of only nine teams in

Division I still undefeated.

Ed Daniel finished with 13 points and nine rebounds for Murray

State and Ivan Aska had 12 points.

Will Barton led Memphis with 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting,

while Joe Jackson had 20 and Tarik Black 11.
