Memphis picks up Gutty Win Over Strong Yale Team

Final/2OT: Memphis 109 Yale 102 Next Game: Memphis vs. Ok State Thurs (11/22)

November 17, 2018 - 10:31 pm

On the surface this wasn't much of test for Memphis considering that the Tigers had just won a moral victory in their solid showing loss at LSU earlier in the week. But according to KenPom.com Memphis (#111) and Yale (#105) was expected to be a close game despite being played on Memphis' home floor. And it delivered. It delivered on a night where the Tigers remembered Karim Azab, their Tigers teammate who passed away this week due to leukemia.

It was a double-overtime game that delivered and often looked like it would escape Memphis' grasp.

But in the end Memphis figured out a way to win using 3 clutch Tyler Harris free throws (fouled on a 3-point attempt) with less than 3-seconds remaining. Final/2OT: Memphis 109 Yale 102

NEXT GAME: Memphis vs. Ok State Thurs (11/22) in the Advocare Invitational. TV: ESPN2 at 2:30 p.m.
