Cincinnati PG Wright limited by knee sprain
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Point guard Cashmere Wright will be limited by a sprained knee -- if he plays at all -- when Cincinnati hosts No. 25 Marquette on Saturday, trying to end a three-game losing streak at home.
The senior sprained his right knee early in the second half of a 75-70 win at DePaul on Tuesday night and had to be helped off the court. Coach Mick Cronin said on Thursday that Wright's status for the game is uncertain.
The Bearcats have leaned heavily on Wright. He has scored at least 20 points in three of the last four games.
Cincinnati (15-3, 3-2 Big East) has lost its last three games at home. The Bearcats are coming off wins at Rutgers and DePaul.
