The Orange trailed by as many as 17 in the first half and a dozen at the break.

Yancy Gates and Sean Kilpatrick scored 18 each for Cincy who also got eleven apiece from Dion Dixon and Cashmere Wright.

The Orange were dealt just their second loss of the season, dropping to 31-2 heading into the national championship tournament where they are expected to be one of the four No. 1 seeds.
