Cincinnati Bearcats coach Wes Miller broke down a 74-73 loss to the Texas Longhorns during the postgame press conference.
"Losing always hurts but when you lose a game like that, it strings in a very serious way. I was really proud of how we kept fighting all night."
It appeared the Bearcats were going to pick up a fifth straight win but a poor free throw shooting performance was just too much to overcome.
Texas forward Dylan Disu dominated throughout the game en route to dropping a career-high 33 points and six rebounds to lead the Longhorns.
