MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A pair of Memphis Tigers were honored by the AAC for their efforts this week.

Jeremiah Martin made the AAC Honor Roll after dropping 41 points in one half Saturday against USF.

Unfortunately, the effort was not enough to win, and likely cost Martin a Player of the Week bid.

Martin shot 13-19 from the floor, including 7-9 from three-point range, with a career-high 6 steals and 3 rebounds.

Martin and the Tigers host 25th-ranked Cincinnati on Thursday at 6 p.m. at FedExForum.

The women will next host Wichita State at Elma Roane Fieldhouse on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
