GAME NOTEBOOK: Knights G Calvin Newell had been averaging 14.6 points in league play but managed just seven points on 3-for-7 shooting. … The Tigers improved to 14-3 in games in which they have at least three players score in double figures this season. … It doesn't get easier for Central Florida, which travels to Texas-El Paso for a Saturday matchup. Memphis looks to stay perfect in conference play when it hits the road for Marshall on Saturday.
