Sophomore Will Barton had career highs of 27 points and 14 rebounds to help No. 21-ranked Memphis overcome a poor night of outside shooting and beat the Miami Hurricanes 71-54 Tuesday. The Tigers, who sank 15 3-pointers in a rout three nights earlier, went 1 for 13 from beyond the arc. But they repeatedly worked the ball inside in the second half to pull away. Memphis (5-2) won its third game in a row. The Hurricanes (5-3) lost in their first game against a ranked team, and the defeat snapped a streak of 27 consecutive non-conference home victories. Barton shot 12 for 20, including three alley-oop dunks. The Hurricanes shot 36 percent, and their point total was a season low.
