(AP)Cincinnati shot 28% in the second half, blowing a 10 point lead in the half. West Virginia didn't play great, but they played well enough to score 74 points to Cincinnati's 68. Devin Ebanks had a 12-10 double double, Kevin Jones had 15, and Truck Bryant had 14, nearly all at the free throw line. Cincinnati was lead by Deonta Vaughn's 15. Lance Stephenson had 14-9, and Yancy Gates had 10 points, but 0 rebounds. The officials were pretty awful, especially in Gates' case. His 3rd and 4th fouls were bullshit calls. The foul disparity was 12-3 in the first half, and 26-13 the whole game. About 4 of those fouls can be accounted for end of the game fouling. This was a brutal loss. The season rests on beating Villanova and Georgetown and not flaking out in the Big East tournament. More on this one Monday.
