Jarron Cumberland lifts Cincinnati past Wichita State 80-79
Cincinnati led for most of the game but Wichita State took its first lead since midway through the first half on Dexter Dennis‘ 3-pointer with 58 seconds remaining for a 76-75 lead. Cumberland answered with two free throws before Grant Sherfield made Wichita State’s eighth 3-pointer for a two-point lead.
After a timeout with 2.5 to go, Erik Stevenson inbounded the ball and got it back but his 3-pointer was off the mark at the buzzer.
Cumberland, the reigning American Athletic Conference player of the year, finished with 24 points. Keith Williams had 17 points for Cincinnati (15-7, 8-2), which earned its fifth straight win. Chris Vogt added 12 points and three blocks, and Tre Scott had 11 rebounds.
