Penny wise: Memphis wins NIT title, has bigger goals for '22

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Memphis has its first title with Penny Hardaway as coach, and these young Tigers could be set up for more.

Boogie Ellis scored 23 points and Memphis never trailed after a fast start to beat Mississippi State 77-64 in the NIT championship game Sunday, wrapping up Hardaway's third season coaching his alma mater after the Tigers just missed out on their first NCAA Tournament since 2013-14.

"We want to win championships, and the NIT is just a start," Hardaway said.
