KISSIMMEE, Fla., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Joe Jackson hit 7-of-10 to lead a strong shooting performance Thursday and No. 19 Memphis easily disposed of Siena 87-60 in the Old Spice Classic.

The Tigers reached the second round for a meeting with either LSU or St. Joseph's.

Memphis forced 15 turnovers in the opening half while rushing to a 48-31 lead and finished off the Saints by hitting 54 percent of its shots from the field.
