Coming off a disappointing loss, the Cincinnati Bearcats got back on track with a 75-72 win at the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Saturday night!
During a postgame press conference, Bearcats head coach Wes Miller reflected on the massive victory at Texas Tech via Cincinnati Athletics.
“I'm so proud of my team tonight. We responded, bounced back and had a great approach against a great team in a very difficult place to play.”
The Bearcats shot a perfect 10/10 from the free throw line and held a 39-35 rebound advantage en route to improving to 15-7 so far this season.

Cincinnati forward Simas Lukosius scored the go-ahead basket with 21.8 seconds left to help lift the Bearcats to a critical conference win.
For the first time in a decade, the Bearcats have recorded a second road win over a ranked team with the last-second triumph at Texas Tech.
Lukosius posted a team-high 16 points and four rebounds, while Daniel Skillings Jr racked up 14 points and seven rebounds off the bench.
The Bearcats will look to keep the momentum going with Big 12 contender Houston coming into town next Saturday at Fifth Third Arena!
