2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament: Memphis Tigers Escape with 54-52 Win over St. Mary's Gaels

This mid-day matchup featured Tuesday’s play-in game winner, the St. Mary’s Gael going up against the Memphis Tigers.

The Tigers jumped out to an early lead and were in control for much of the first-half as they took a 32-22 lead into half-time on the strength of 10 points from guard Joe Jackson.

The Gaels were able to hang around thanks to a big game from forward Brad Waldow, who scored a game-high 17 points.

Neither team could hold onto the ball consistently, as the two clubs combined for 29 turnovers.

In the second-half, the Gaels would continue to keep the game close, cutting the leads to a s little as 3 at one point, but a 6-0 Tigers run helped them build a 9-point lead with under 5 to play. The Gaels would then slowly chip away and ended up with a last-second attempt from three to win the game, but air-balled it as the Tigers escaped with a 54-52 victory.
