NEW YORK (AP)—Cincinnati has rebounded quite well in getting comfortable at the Big East tournament.
The 11th-seeded Bearcats again used a huge advantage on the boards to beat sixth-seeded Louisville 69-66 on Wednesday night to advance to the quarterfinals. They are the only team to play in the opening round still playing, and it was rebounding that keyed both close wins.
“We can rebound the ball when we get shots off,” Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said. “When we get the ball in the paint, we get it on the rim, we can rebound the ball.”
