MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Chris Crawford scored 15 points, converting five of Memphis' season-high 10 3-pointers, and the 23rd-ranked Tigers defeated South Florida 80-58 on Sunday.

The Tigers, next-to-last in the American Athletic Conference in 3-point shooting percentage, ended the night at 10 of 22 from outside the arc. Crawford was 5 of 10.

Joe Jackson added 14 points and seven assists for Memphis (15-4, 5-2 AAC), while Shaq Goodwin finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Nick King had 10 points as Memphis won its third straight.

Martino Brock led South Florida (10-10, 1-6) with 17 points, the only Bull to score in double figures.

Memphis broke the game open in the middle of the first half, building the lead to 12 points at halftime. The Tigers were up 30 with about 9 minutes left. At that point, Memphis coach Josh Pastner began substituting freely.
