Quinones was 5-for-11 shooting, including four 3-pointers, and made 7 of 8 free throws for the Tigers (17-5, 6-3 American Athletic Conference). Achiuwa scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He also blocked three shots. Boogie Ellis tossed in 18 points for Memphis and was a perfect 8-for-8 at the free-throw line, where the Tigers went 22-for-28.
Memphis, which has won its last three games, was 11-for-26 from behind the 3-point arc to Temple's 6-for-21, and the Tigers scored 19 points off 12 Temple turnovers. After a scrappy first half that saw nine lead changes and five ties, Memphis didn't let the Owls get closer than five in the second half and led by double digits for the last 9:31 after a Quinones 3-pointer from the left side.
Memphis evened the series at 11 wins apiece.
