EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Chris Crawford scored 15 points and Adonis Thomas added 11 and No. 25 Memphis remained undefeated in Conference USA with a 56-54 victory over UTEP on Tuesday night.

UTEP's C.J. Cooper had an opportunity to tie the game after being fouled from beyond the 3-point line but he missed the first free throw. He made the second and purposely missed the third in an attempt to rebound the ball and get the win. Tarik Black was fouled getting the rebound for the Tigers (26-4, 15-0 CUSA).

Julian Washburn led UTEP (16-13, 9-6) with 19 points and Cedrick Lang added 10.

Memphis out-rebounded UTEP 38-25, but the Tigers had 16 turnovers to UTEP's 12.

Memphis led by as many as seven points with 12:31 left before UTEP tied the game on a fast-break layup from Jacques Streeter with 9:26 left.
