No. 15 Cincinnati beats No. 20 Memphis 97-84
Question of the Day
Cincinnati’s biggest downfall in the last two losses - 33 turnovers. The Bearcats worked on making good decisions under pressure during practice the last few days, and were spot-on when the game began.
The Bearcats didn’t turn the ball over during an opening 18-4 run. Jackson had eight points and four rebounds in the spurt, which was set up by the Bearcats’ tight defense. Memphis had eight turnovers and went 2 of 7 from the field in the first 8 minutes.
Kilpatrick hit a 3-pointer, but Michael Dixon Jr. matched it with 4 seconds left, cutting Cincinnati’s halftime lead to 38-32.
Jackson had a driving layup, and Chris Crawford hit another 3 that cut it to 38-37. Cincinnati then lost Jackson, who was fouled while driving to the basket, doubled over in pain and left the court with his right arm tucked under him. He said the shoulder popped out of place. Jackson returned a few minutes later with a trainer rubbing the back of his shoulder and arm.
That’s when Cincinnati’s three senior starters took over. Kilpatrick, Jackson and Rubles combined for 12 points during a 15-3 run that rebuilt the lead to 58-45. The lead eventually reached 18 points before Cincinnati closed it out.
