Associated Press  |  Last updated December 13, 2013
Shaq Goodwin scored 17 points and No. 16 Memphis rallied for a 73-59 victory over Arkansas-Little Rock on Friday night. Joe Jackson also had 17 points for the Tigers, but was 3 for 11 from the field. Memphis (7-1) was tied with Arkansas-Little Rock with under 7 minutes to go, but the Trojans faded down the stretch. Josh Hagins led Arkansas-Little Rock (3-6) with 17 points, connecting on 6 of 11 shots. Will Neighbour scored 10 of his 15 points in the first half as the Trojans built a double-digit lead. Geron Johnson scored 13 points for Memphis, which shot 52 percent in the second half of its sixth consecutive victory. Goodwin also had nine rebounds. The Tigers outrebounded the Trojans 41-32 and scored 28 points off 17 Arkansas-Little Rock turnovers. Arkansas-Little Rock played with more passion in the first half, and Memphis struggled on offense for much of the first part of the game. The Tigers missed 12 of their first 14 shots and were still at 20 percent shooting with 5 minutes remaining before the break. The Trojans led by as many as 12, but Johnson helped Memphis put together a 16-4 run that tied at 21. Johnson had 10 points in the first half. Hagins and Kemy Osse scored five points apiece down the stretch, helping the Trojans to a 31-24 lead at the break. Memphis shot 28 percent from the field in the first, but turned it around after halftime. Chris Crawford made a 3-pointer to give the Tigers their first lead at 42-41, then hit another one from long range. It was back and forth for a while from there, before Memphis grabbed control with a 12-1 spree. David Pellom got it started with two baskets, and Jackson closed it out with five straight points. The run gave Memphis a 58-49 lead with 4 minutes left, and the Trojans never threatened again.
