Memphis, TN (Sports Network) - Geron Johnson led all scorers with 18 points as the Memphis Tigers overcame a halftime deficit to take down the Tulane Green Wave, 71-60, in Conference USA action at FedExForum.

Joe Jackson scored 16 points for Memphis (15-3, 4-0 C-USA), which extended its season-long winning streak to nine games. Chris Crawford added 14 points and six assists, Tarik Black netted 10 points, and D.J. Stephens grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked three shots for the home team.
