Memphis earned an unlikely win off of a broken play on Saturday afternoon as the Tigers knocked down a buzzer-beating three to outlast Temple.

Kareem Brewton Jr. knocked down the game-winning three for the Tigers after ending up with a loose ball on a play that he started. Brewton tried to pass to the low post from the wing, but the ball was deflected. Brewton corralled the loose ball off the deflection and nailed a tough turnaround three-pointer to give Memphis the 73-72 win.

The Tigers have now won three consecutive games in the American as they improved to 12-6 on the season.
