Trailing 5-2 after six innings, UConn’s hopes of repeating as American Athletic Conference tournament champions were slipping away. However, a three-run seventh inning tied the game for the Huskies and Chris Winkel hit a go-ahead RBI triple in the eighth to lead UConn to a 7-5 victory.

Huskies starter Wills Montgomerie looked good for the first four innings, holding Memphis scoreless with just one hit. The Tigers would get on the board in the fifth, scoring three runs in the inning on three hits with the help of an error by Aaron Hill and a Montgomerie wild pitch.
