TULSA, Okla. -- Antonio Anderson?s driving basket at the buzzer lifted Memphis to a 55-54 victory over Tulsa Tuesday night.

Memphis coach John Calipari set up the play after Tulsa?s Ben Uzoh hit two free throws to give the Golden Hurricane their first lead of the game with 4.5 seconds to play.

The play called for all the Memphis players to go the left side of the court except for Anderson, who caught the inbounds pass near midcourt on the right and drove to the basket where he lofted in a double-clutch layup over Tulsa?s 7-foot center, Jerome Jordan.

Tyreke Evans led the Tigers (13-3, 3-0 Conference USA), with 23 points.

Jordan had 20 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks for Tulsa (11-6, 1-1 CUSA). Uzoh added 16 points, eight rebounds and three assists.

Tulsa outrebounded Memphis 43-25 but was hurt by 22 turnovers, compared to just 11 for the Tigers.
