Houston Falls to Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (AP) - Steve Logan scored 26 points Saturday night, leading four Cincinnati players in double figures, as the Bearcats rolled to an 85-50 victory over Houston.

Cincinnati (19-8, 9-5) opened with a six-point run and never trailed in a game it needed to win to stay in contention for the Conference USA regular-season title.

The Bearcats have won all five of the conference's regular-season titles, but trail three teams and are a game out of first with two to play.

Houston (7-19, 4-10) never made a charge after falling behind by double-digits midway through the first half. The Cougars had won their last two games _ their first consecutive wins this season _ and were coming off their first road win, an 81-76 victory at Tulane last Wednesday.

Cincinnati's balance was too much for the Cougars, who couldn't stop the Bearcats with their man-to-man defense or their zones.

Kenny Satterfield and Immanuel McElroy added 12 points apiece and Leonard Stokes had 11 as Cincinnati got its most lopsided victory in eight games. Alton Ford led Houston with 14 points.

The Cougars self-destructed in the first half, turning the ball over 10 times as they fell behind 35-19. They lost all momentum after Ford, their most consistent scorer in the last four games, got his fourth foul only three minutes into the second half.

Houston also lost its composure. Patrick Okafor got a technical foul for objecting to a three-seconds call less than two minutes into the game, and a technical on Houston coach Ray McCallum started a 12-point run that pushed Cincinnati's lead to 50-27 with 13:58 left and finished off the Cougars.

Cincinnati got its 19th victory in 20 games against Houston, including the last seven in their series.

The Bearcats are more concerned about Marquette, South Florida and Memphis, the three teams ahead of them in the conference. South Florida and Memphis play on Sunday, and the Bearcats play their next game at South Florida on Thursday.
