With the combination of New Year’s Eve bowl games and college basketball games with more suspense, No. 18 Memphis’ 88-73 win over USF in the American opener for both teams didn’t receive a great deal of attention. Josh Pastner’s Tigers were expected to take care of business against the undermanned Bulls and that they did, with Geron Johnson accounting for a team-high 19 points to go along with five steals and four steals.
The play of the game? That would be Joe Jackson’s coast-to-coast drive and flush to end the first half, giving Memphis a 48-32 lead at the intermission. Impressive stuff from the 6-foot-1 senior guard.
