Far from perfect, No. 5 Cincinnati was good enough to stay unbeaten. Tony Pike threw two touchdown passes in a cameo appearance Friday night, and the host Bearcats overcame a self-destructive first half to beat West Virginia 24-21 for the best start in school history. Cincinnati (10-0, 6-0 Big East) struggled offensively because of uncharacteristic mistakes. Isaiah Pead ran for a career-high 175 yards, and sophomore Zach Collaros threw for 205 yards in his fourth start in place of Pike, who is recovering from an injury to his non-throwing arm. •Three Tennessee freshmen charged with attempted armed robbery will not play Saturday at Mississippi.

Justin Jenifer picked the right time to have one of the best games of his young career. It was March 17, 2013, at Comcast Center, and Jenifer's Milford Mill squad had a date with Potomac, a D.C.-area power featuring four-star prospect and soon-to-be Maryland shooting guard commitment Dion Wiley . Jenifer, a 5-foot-10, 160-pound point guard, was up for the challenge. The wiry sophomore scored 17 points and added seven rebounds and seven assists in the Millers' 84-55 rout of the Wolverines.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Cincinnati won't mind if you make today's East Regional final against North Carolina out be the boy scouts against the bad boys.UNLV and Oklahoma didn't make the tournament this year, but the outlaw tradition is alive and well in the Queen City. When Bob Huggins took over Cincinnati in 1989, the glory days of Oscar Robertson and repeat NCAA titles in 1961 and '62 were moldy memories, but six junior college transfers and a Proposition 48 sophomore have lifted the Bearcats within one victory of their second straight Final Four berth.

UMBC's loss to No. 13 Albany may not have been a surprise, but the team's setback to Binghamton was. In that game, the Retrievers (7-6 overall and 3-2 in the America East) lost a 6-4 lead at halftime and were outscored 9-1 in the second half en route to a 13-7 loss. So who do they get in an America East tournament semifinal on Thursday at Stony Brook? Those same Bearcats (7-7, 4-1). UMBC coach Don Zimmerman acknowledged that the team was eager for a rematch with Binghamton, but he warned against revenge taking over preparation.

Bob Huggins has a big mouth. He admits it proudly. He speaks in absolutes. He is brash and, above all, he is always right.Just ask the city of Cincinnati.Three years ago, Huggins, a slightly manic, blow-dried, exquisitely dressed young coach from Akron, was hired to revive the University of Cincinnati's once-proud, then-humiliated basketball program. Huggins arrived on a campus that was fed up with players who had trouble with the law and academics and winning."I am," Huggins said the day he was hired, "going to take the University of Cincinnati to the Final Four.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Cincinnati Bearcats are going to the Final Four with an attitude.Attack.Attack on offense. Attack on defense. Attack with your mouth. Attack with your eyes. Attack first. Attack last. And in between, attack.Yesterday, for the fourth time this season, the Bearcats beat Great Midwest Conference foe Memphis State. "Beat" isn't the proper word. The final score was 88-57. And the Bearcats were annoyed about those 57.Cincinnati, a school with a rich basketball tradition that had sort of stagnated since its last Final Four appearance, in 1963, is returning to the national championship chase with a vengeance.

CHICAGO -- They have played six games and flown thousands of miles, and still have another long leg left in their early-season adventure.Just when it seemed as if the top-ranked Kansas Jayhawks had run out of gas last night here at the United Center, they found a second wind against fourth-ranked Cincinnati in the Great Eight Festival.More importantly, they found a way of stopping Danny Fortson. Or, perhaps, the senior All-American found a way of stopping himself. When the 6-foot-7 forward got into foul trouble early in the second half, the Jayhawks got into the game.

SAN DIEGO -- By the time Friday's news conference was over, the Cincinnati men's basketball team had had enough of the chiding over its past failures in the NCAA tournament. Four times the Bearcats had earned top-three seeds in the NCAAs, and four times they had been upset in the second round. This wouldn't happen against Kent State. Forward Jamaal Davis hit eight of nine shots for 16 points to go with 10 rebounds as No. 5 seed Cincinnati (25-9) cruised into next week's West Regional semifinals in Anaheim, Calif.

Twelve years before they went head-to-head for an NFL coaching job, John Harbaugh and Rex Ryan were on the same staff at Cincinnati . In 1996, Harbaugh was the Bearcats' assistant head coach and special teams coordinator. Ryan was their defensive coordinator. “We had a great year together,” said Harbaugh, whose Ravens face Ryan's New York Jets Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium. “Actually, I was the assistant head coach on that staff, and he called and was interested in a job there.

This season, UMBC has featured one of Division I's more opportunistic man-up offenses, converting 39.5 percent of its chances (15-of-38) which ranks 14th in the country. The program's strength will soon be tested this Saturday when America East rival Binghamton pays a visit to UMBC Stadium in Catonsville. The Bearcats (5-8 overall and 2-2 in the league) are tops in the nation in suffocating extra-man opportunities, surrendering just four goals on 28 man-up chances and turning away 85.7 percent of those opportunities.

One potential byproduct of the new rules in men's college lacrosse this season: more disparity in offensive efficiency, a stat that looks at goals per offensive possession and adjusts for strength of schedule. In data from Brian Coughlin , a stats expert who has done analysis for Division I programs and contributes to Inside Lacrosse, Denver has the league's highest adjusted offensive efficiency. The Pioneers score at 51 percent (numbers adjusted for strength of schedule). That's markedly higher than last season's best, Massachusetts' 42 percent.

A win last Saturday night against Binghamton would have put UMBC in the conversation for the America East regular season championship and the top seed and homefield advantage in the conference tournament. Stony Brook's 12-11 decision against Albany made that discussion moot as the Seawolves finished with a 4-1 record in the league and clinched the aforementioned rewards. That left the Retrievers with a 3-2 conference mark and the second seed in the America East Tournament. UMBC didn't exactly help its own cause with a 15-8 loss to the Bearcats.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Tim Smith's layup bounced off the rim, but teammate James Anthony made sure East Tennessee State still wasn't done. Anthony's put-back off his rebound, too, bounced off the rim, but teammate Zakee Wadood again kept the Buccaneers alive. It wasn't until Wadood's subsequent put-back bounced off the rim and into the hands of Cincinnati forward Jason Maxiell that East Tennessee State looked, finally, to be finished. But even as the seconds were winding down, it was impossible to count out the Buccaneers.

It wasn't enough for Cincinnati to return to the NCAA tournament for the first time in six years. The sixth-seeded Bearcats (26-8), who are rebounding from probation and an NCAA-mandated scholarship loss, wanted to return in style. Cincinnati handled Missouri's pressure defense in a 78-63 victory that was its first in the tournament since Bob Huggins coached the team in 2005. "I'm never going to be Bob Huggins," Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said. "He had a great run. I'm real comfortable being Mick Cronin.
