FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) D.J. Jeffries came off the bench to score 17 points to lead Memphis to a 70-62 win over Central Florida in the American Athletic Conference Tournament quarterfinals on Friday night.
The third-seeded Tigers will face No. 2 seed Houston on Saturday, a rematch of the regular-season finale won by Houston 67-64 on a half-court buzzer beater.
DeAndre Williams had 16 points and five assists for Memphis (16-7). His dunk with about three minutes left put the Tigers up 58-54 and UCF didn't get closer than that the rest of the way.
