MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Joey Dorsey who Memphis fans have wanted to see on a regular basis all season resurfaced on Senior Day.Dorsey had 16 points and 12 rebounds to lead Memphis (No. 3 ESPN/USA Today, No. 2 AP) to a 94-56 victory over UAB on Saturday that capped a second straight perfect Conference USA season for the Tigers."It ought to be Senior Night every night for Joey," Memphis swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts said, marveling at the resurrection of the forward's play.It was the fourth straight win for the Tigers (30-1, 16-0) and their most dominant performance since dropping their only game of the season to Tennessee two weeks ago.
Memphis' Winning Cats
Saturday's blowout win over UAB locked up a third straight 30-win season for Memphis, moving the Tigers into elite company. Kentucky is the only school to win 30 games in three straight seasons and the Wildcats did it twice. The biggest difference between the streaks, though, is that Kentucky won two NCAA titles in those spans while Memphis has yet to reach a Final Four.
