Memphis guard Ricky Tarrant had ice in his veins — and blood in his mouth — as he connected on two free throws in the final second to lift the Tigers to a 67-65 win over Temple on Wednesday night.
Temple tied the game with a layup from Josh Brown after Memphis’ Trashon Burrell, who was trying to save a ball from going out of bounds, threw a pass to Brown for an uncontested layup. The Tigers were quick to inbound the ball. As soon as Tarrant received the pass, he collided with Daniel Dingle, who was going for a steal. Dingle’s head smashed right into Tarrant’s mouth.
