No. 9/10 Memphis 97, New Orleans 55 - Box Score

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Returning from a broken right hand, Memphis guard Lester Quinones showed his 3-point shooting didn’t suffer during his absence.

Quinones, who missed five game with the injury, returned Saturday scoring 13 points while converting all three of his 3-point attempts as No. 9 Memphis built a first-half lead and easily defeated New Orleans 97-55.

“There’s definitely a mental aspect to it,” Quinones said of the 3-point shooting.
