Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Memphis has played fast and loose in the first half against Cincinnati, dominating in just about every area. The Tigers went 7-of-12 from the 3-point line, and outrebounded the Bearcats, too. Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin cannot be happy with his team's overall effort, especially on defense.

Memphis starting forward Jimario Rivers fell hard to the floor early in the semifinal against Cincinnati, sustaining a head and lower back injury. He won't return to the game.
