The Memphis Tigers didn’t leave much of an opening for Wichita State, who was in pursuit of their first conference win.

Memphis won the game in blowout fashion, 71-50.

“We’ve got some basketball problems,” WSU head coach Keitha Adams said.

Adams pointed out that turnovers, rebounding, and shooting are all issues plaguing the program.

WSU was 17-60 from the field. From three, they made a mere two shots of their 27 attempts.

“We are going to have to continue to work to get better to give ourselves a chance to win some games,” Adams said.

The team’s three-point struggles were in someways shadowed by the 25 turnovers the Shockers surrendered in the game. Memphis scored 23 points off turnovers.

“We don’t need to over analyze this thing,” Adams said. “Today we had a very bad shooting day. We’ve got to get in the gym and shoot more.”

WSU has lost their last three games.
