Recap


No. 12 Cincinnati 72, Marshall 56:
Cashmere Wright had 14 points, including three big 3-pointers in the middle of the second half, as the Bearcats pulled away from the host Thundering Herd.

Wright’s 3-pointers helped Cincinnati (10-0) put together a run that turned a four-point lead into a 52-39 advantage with 11:45 remaining in the game. Sean Kilpatrick added 13 points and Justin Jackson had 10 for the Bearcats, who shot 61.5 percent from the field in the second half.

D.D. Scarver and Elijah Pittman scored 20 points apiece to lead the way for Marshall (6-5), which had won four of its last five coming in. The Thundering Herd had 12 turnovers in the opening 20 minutes and 20 for the game.
