Cincinnati Rolls Past Winless Arkansas-Pine Bluff

This one was in the bag before the first half even finished.

The No. 20 Cincinnati Bearcats dominated from start to finish (as expected) on Tuesday night, demolishing the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions 77-49 at BB&T Arena.

A 26-2 run to start the game made sure the Bearcats (10-2) were in control for all 40 minutes. Cane Broome scored a game-high 17 points and Jacob Evans added 12 points and seven rebounds in the win, the third-straight for UC. Eleven different players got into the game for at least 10 minutes for the hosts, who scored 34 points off of turnovers and outscored the Golden Lions (0-13) 36-14 in the paint.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff managed to make only 36 percent of its shots from the floor, finishing with a total of 18 field goals made. The Golden Lions were also ripped apart on the glass (42-28) while leading scorer Martaveous McKnight, who was averaging more than 17 points per game entering play, netted only 10 on 4-of-12 shooting.

Cincinnati will have very little time off before its next game, as it hosts Cleveland State on Thursday night. After that, the Bearcats will be off until Dec. 31 when they open American Athletic Conference play at home against the Memphis Tigers.
