KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) Alex Lomax scored seven of his 12 points in a game-changing surge and Memphis used its defense to stymie Stanford 56-48 in the fifth-place game of the ESPN Events Invitational on Sunday.
Maxime Raynaud and Harrison Ingram hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put Stanford up 14-9 midway through the first half. After a three-minute drought overall - and five minutes for Memphis - Lomax scored a layup and the Tigers took charge.
It was a 15-0 run with Lomax adding another layup as well as the ending three-point play that made it 24-14 with 1:16 to go. Stanford missed 11 shots before Jarvis Moss hit a 3-pointer to end an 8 1/2-minute dry spell.
