Robert Dozier had 16 points and 12 rebounds as three Memphis players recorded double-doubles, and the fifth-ranked Tigers extended the nation's longest winning streak to 22 games with a 74-47 victory over Tulane on Saturday.
Tyreke Evans had 17 points and 10 rebounds and Shawn Taggart added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers (28-3, 16-0 Conference USA).

Roburt Sallie had 11 points for the Tigers.
Kevin Sims had 14 points for the Green Wave (13-16, 7-9). Kris Richard, Tulane's second-leading scorer with an 11.2 average, had four points on 2-of-12 shooting as the Green Wave shot 31 percent in the game.
Tulane kept it interesting as the Tigers played uninspired early in the second half. But Memphis rallied when the Green Wave got close, closing the game on a 27-4 run.
For Senior Day, Memphis coach John Calipari started Dozier and Antonio Anderson as usual, but added seldom-used senior Chance McGrady to the starting lineup.
Tulane missed seven of its first eight shots, but Memphis was also a bit out of sync. At one point, out of a timeout, the Tigers coaching staff sent six players on the court leading to a technical foul.
The Memphis defense caused problems for the Green Wave, allowing the Tigers to build to a 35-26 halftime lead. Taggart, who got on the boards early for second-chance opportunities, had 12 points in the half, missing only one of his six shots
Memphis missed five shots to open the half and Tulane went on a 7-0 run to get within 35-33 in the opening 4 minutes.
The Tigers went on a 23-2 run midway through the half. Dozier hit a 3-pointer, and Anderson scored four straight points to start the rally, and by the time Sallie connected on a 3-pointer from the top of the key, the Tigers had extended the lead to 65-45 with 3:47 left.
