MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Robert Dozier had 18 points and seven rebounds, and No. 5 Memphis extended the nation's longest winning streak to 20 games with a 58-42 victory over Southern Mississippi on Saturday.
Dozier was 6-of-8 from the field and made both of his 3-point attempts as Memphis (26-3, 14-0 Conference USA) also extended its conference winning streak to 56 games, including the postseason.
Tyreke Evans had 14 points for Memphis, and Antonio Anderson finished with 10.
Jeremy Wise and R.L. Horton led Southern Mississippi (14-14, 4-10) with 14 points each, as the Golden Eagles dropped their third straight and eighth of nine.
Courtney Beasley, the Golden Eagles' second-leading scorer at 14.8 points per game, had two points, missing his first 10 shots. Southern Miss shot 29 percent.
Beasley's only basket came on a goaltending call late in the second half.
