* Memphis has also now won seven straight in Hattiesburg, Miss.

* The Tiger bench contributed 37 points, led by freshman Will Barton with 15 points. The Tigers are now 9-3 when they get more than 30 points worth of production from the bench.

* Freshman Chris Crawford broke out his slump with 12 points in 26 minutes off the bench.

* The Tigers were hot from downtown, shooting a season-high 52.9 percent (9-for-17) from beyond the arc. Will Barton lead the way with three three-point baskets.

* The Tigers shot a season-low eight free throws.

* Memphis snatched a season-low 30 boards, but held Southern Miss just 32. The Golden Eagles entered play with an average rebounding differential of 8.1, highest in the conference and 12th-highest in the nation, but were just two better than the Tigers, who were led by freshman Tarik Black's eight rebounds.

* The Tigers are now 12-1 when scoring 70 points or more.

* The Tigers, the C-USA leaders in steals per game heading into this contest, manufactured just one theft in the first half and six for the game.
