MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Shaq Goodwin scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, pacing Memphis to a 73-45 victory over Bradley on Saturday night.
The Tigers (3-3) shot 42.9 percent from the field and committed just eight turnovers. Avery Woodson and Nick King each added 11 points, and Austin Nichols had nine with four blocks. Goodwin was 4 of 7 from the field and 7 of 12 from the line.
Memphis limited Bradley (3-5) to 13-of-48 shooting (27.1 percent). Omari Grier led the Braves with 14 points, but no other Bradley players had more than seven.
The Tigers put on a show with eight first-half dunks. A string of dunks from Nichols, King, Pookie Powell and Markel Crawford sparked a 16-7 run to close the first half and give Memphis a 34-20 lead.
Bradley pulled within six in the second half, but Memphis put on the throttle and outscored the Braves 36-14 from there.
