Junior Michael Dixon paced the Tigers with 18 points. He shot 4-of-7 from behind the arc in the game, which tied a career high of 3-point makes in a single contest.
Ratliffe reached double figures for his team leading 16th game this season. Denmon reached the mark for the 15th time this year, Dixon for the 12th time and Phil Pressey for the eighth time.
