PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) _ Chris Crawford and Joe Jackson, two of Memphis' better players who had been struggling, scored 18 and 15 points, respectively, and the 19th-ranked Tigers avoided losing all three games in the Battle 4 Atlantis, beating Northern Iowa 52-47 on Saturday.

 

     Memphis (3-2) was one of four ranked team in the regular-season tournament but it was the only one not to reach the semifinals, and things didn't look so great late in the first half against the Panthers, who led 26-12 with 4:34 to play.
 
  Crawford, who had 12 rebounds, hit a 3-pointer to start a 10-0 run that closed the half and Jackson ended the spurt with another 3 to make it 26-22.
 
  Deon Mitchell led the Panthers (3-3) with 18 points and five assists.
