LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Kyvon Davenport scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his 10th career double-double, and Memphis beat Canisius 71-63 in a consolation-round game at the AdvoCare Invitational on Friday.
Mike Parks and Antwann Jones both had 14 points for Memphis (3-2), which will play the winner of UAB-Charleston in the fifth-place game Sunday. The Tigers lost 84-64 to Oklahoma State Thursday.
Canisius (1-4) got 18 points from Takal Molson and Isaiah Reese had 14.
The Golden Griffins will look to avoid losing all three games at the invitational when they face the loser of UAB-Charleston Sunday for seventh place.

Jones had 10 points to help Memphis go up 40-31 at halftime.
