MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Dedric Lawson scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Memphis rallied in the second half to defeat UAB 62-55 on Saturday.

Trailing by four at halftime, the Tigers fell behind by nine early in the second half - the biggest lead for either team - before building a seven-point lead with 4:32 to play.

Memphis tied the game at 46 with 9:02 to play on a pair of Lawson free throws. His brother K.J. put the Tigers up for good with a layup a minute later. A Dedric Lawson jumper made it 56-49 with 4:32 to play.

Crawford finished with 16 points and K.J. Lawson had 11 rebounds to go with nine points for the Tigers (7-2).

Cokley had 16 points for UAB (5-5), which was outscored 40-28 in the paint.
