A coin flip decided the top seed for the inaugural American Athletic Conference tournament. The competition to determine the league's player of the year also looks like a toss-up.
From the opening whistle, J.J. Moore was determined not to go home a loser on senior day at Rutgers.
Breanna Stewart scored 22 points Saturday to lead top-ranked UConn to a 72-42 rout of eighth-seeded Cincinnati in the quarterfinals of the American Athletic Conference tournament.
No. 15 Cincinnati won a conference title for the first time since 2004, and coach Mick Cronin didn't care that it was shared.
No. 20 Memphis didn't expect this out of Titus Rubles. And the Tigers weren't alone in their surprise.
Darrun Hilliard scored 19 points and No. 6 Villanova clinched the outright Big East championship for the first time in 32 years by holding off Xavier 77-70 on Thursday night.
The first-place cushion that No. 15 Cincinnati enjoyed for most of the season has eroded. The Bearcats head into the final week needing two more wins to get the first American Athletic Conference title.
No. 11 Cincinnati held UConn without a basket for the last 7½ minutes on Saturday, but still couldn't find a way to beat the Huskies.
Cincinnati knew just three weeks ago what it felt like to get a big conference road win.
When Central Florida doesn't shoot well, the Knights usually wind up in a big hole.
Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin didn't hide his disappointment in his team's defensive effort last week when it had to hang on after squandering a big lead against Houston.
Bria Hartley scored 18 points and Breanna Stewart and Stefanie Dolson each had 15 to help No. 1 Connecticut remain unbeaten with a 63-38 rout of cold-shooting South Florida on Sunday.
The game plan has become common for Cincinnati.
Houston was the equal of No. 10 Cincinnati for 34 minutes. Then the Bearcats' seniors took over.
After leading most of the game, No. 22 Connecticut had a chance to finish off a big upset. The Huskies got a little too anxious.
"It's an honor," Kilpatrick said.
