Cincinnati runs past Tulane 78-49


In front of a season-best crowd home crowd of 2,824, Tulane suffered a 78-49 home loss to 10th-ranked Cincinnati on Senior Night in the Devlin Fieldhouse.

Melvin Frazier led Tulane (14-15, 5-12 AAC) with 13 points, five rebounds and three steals, while Caleb Daniels added 10 points off the bench for his fifth straight game in double-figures.

Cincinnati's (26-4, 15-2 AAC) Kyle Washington topped all players with 16 points and seven rebounds, as Cane Broome chipped in 13 points on 6 of 7 shooting off the bench. Jacob Evans scored 11 points in the first 11 minutes of the game before leaving with an injury, while Tre Scott added 10 points and six boards.

The Green Wave made just two of their first 14 shot attempts and struggled to take full grasp of an offensive flow, as Cincinnati had success creating turnovers and altering shots at the defensive end. The Bearcats opened up a 10-0 run to increase their lead to 35-17 with 3:31 remaining, but that run ended on a Reynolds jumper with 2:33 left.

Tulane finished the night shooting 16 for 51 (.314) overall, 3 for 14 (.214) beyond the arc and 14 for 17 (.824) at the foul line, while Cincinnati went 29 for 60 (.483) on the floor, 5 for 13 (.385) from outside and 15 for 17 (.882) at the stripe.

Tulane will close out its regular season Sunday in Orlando against UCF. Tipoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
