Attention in The American is turning to basketball now that football is over (reminder: UCF won the national championship) and conference play starts to shift into high gear. Last night saw the Memphis Tigers come alive and come together as a cohesive unit to top the Tulane Green Wave thanks to a strong performance from Jeremiah Martin.

A career night by Grant Williams lifted the 24th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers to a 92-84 victory over in-state rival Vanderbilt at Memorial Gymnasium on Tuesday night.

After trailing No. 5 Purdue for the first 35:30 of the game, the University of Michigan men's basketball team fought back to take the lead but ultimately fell short of the Boilermakers in a 70-69 setback on Tuesday night (Jan. 9) at Crisler Center. The Wolverines are now 9-1 at home this season.

Keenan Evans secured 19 points and five rebounds, but the No. 8 Texas Tech men's basketball team was unable to fend off a strong second half effort by No. 9 Oklahoma as the Sooners secured a 75-65 decision on Tuesday at the Lloyd Noble Center.

For Jeremiah Martin, one career-high performance deserved another.

Three days after scoring a career-high 28 points in a win over Tulsa, Martin, the University of Memphis's junior guard, dropped in 31 points to set a new mark and lead the Tigers to a 96-89 American Athletic Conference victory over Tulane. Martin's effort helped the U of M to improve to 11-6 overall and 2-2 in AAC play.
