Team

          Xavier defeated Cincinnati 83-79 in double overtime, the first double-overtime game in series history.

          With the loss, Cincinnati fell to 47-30 in the all-time series against Xavier.

          Cincinnati’s record moves to 49-46 overall and 1-5 all-time against Xavier in overtime games. UC is 7-5 all-time in double-overtime contests.

          The Bearcats are now 0-2 on the season in overtime games and it is their third consecutive overtime loss dating back to last season.

          The loss is UC’s first of the season when scoring 60-plus points. The Bearcats own a 6-1 record when scoring 60-plus points in a game.

          Cincinnati lost its first game of the year when outrebounding its opponent. UC is now 6-1 when outrebounding opponent after the Bearcats outrebounded Xavier 52-43.

          The Bearcats converted just 10-of-22 free throws for the game compared to 28-of-36 for the Musketeers.

          Cincinnati outscored Xavier 42-30 in the paint.

          Trailing by one point, with just over a minute to play, a lay-up by Jason Love and two XU free throws down the stretch gave the Musketeers the 83-79 win, XU’s third straight win in the series.

          A freshman Lance Stephenson lay-up with 14.7 seconds remaining tied the game at 61 and Xavier failed to connect on the final possession sending the game in overtime.

          Xavier’s lead reached as many as 10 points, 45-35, with 14:16 remaining in the game, but an 11-0 Cincinnati run from the 9:09 mark to 5:44 mark placed Cincinnati in front, 55-51, its first lead of the second half. Stephenson scored the first seven points of the run.

          UC went scoreless from the field over the final 2:37 of the first half and XU went on a 5-0 run to take a 31-26 lead entering the half. Cincinnati’s only other halftime deficit this season was against Prairie View A&M on Nov. 16.

          Xavier shot 40 percent from the field (10-of-25) in the first half compared to just 28.6 percent for Cincinnati (10-of-35). Despite the shooting percentage, UC outrebounded XU 25-16 and grabbed 12 offensive rebounds compared to just three for the Musketeers.

          The Bearcats responded with a 14-0 run of its own over an 8:35 stretch in the middle of the first half to capture a 19-12 lead with 7:07 to play in the half. During that stretch, Xavier missed 12 straight shots from the field.

          After a Stephenson three-pointer put UC ahead 4-3 with 18:22 to play, the Musketeers went on a 9-1 run from the 17:17 mark to the 14:35 mark to give XU a 12-5 lead with 14:35 to play in the first half.

 

Individual

 

          Stephenson finished with 22 points, his fifth double-figure scoring effort of the season and the first 20-plus point performance of his career. The 20-plus point performance is the second for UC this season as Rashad Bishop scored 20 points against Toledo on Nov. 18.

          Gates notched a season-high 18 points, while playing a season-high 40 minutes.

          A fast-break lay-up by senior Deonta Vaughn was his two first points of the game. Vaughn went 74:20 of game time without scoring a point, with his last bucket scored with 11:55 on the clock in the second half against Texas Southern. Vaughn finished the game with 13 points and a career-high tying nine rebounds.

          Junior Darnell Wilks was a spark off the bench for Cincinnati scoring eight points and grabbing five boards in 14 minutes of action.

          Junior Ibrahima Thomas made his first appearance of the season after sitting out the first seven games due to NCAA transfer rules.
