In the evening’s other game, the Cincinnati Bearcats dispatched the South Florida Bulls with ease. The Bull, who upset Villanova on the tournament’s opening day, never got things rolling and were completely over matched by the Bearcats.
Yancy Gates and Dion Dixon both went over twenty points for Cincinnati who dictated the pace with suffocating defense and tough play inside. South Florida was led by Augustus Gilchrist who finished with 16 points, though he need 15 shots to get there.
