The Bearcats struggled shooting from three-point range today, but they certainly made up for it in the post.
The Wolf Pack did not go down without a fight. Kendall Stephens hit two three-pointers too cut the Cincinnati lead to 12 points with 9 minutes left in the second half.
The Wolf Pack proceeded to go on a 20-4 run during that time but it was clear that the team was fatigued. The question would be could the Wolf Pack pull off a miracle?
The Bearcats led by 22 points at one point, but everything changed when sophomore guard Jarron Cumberland fouled out with 4 minutes left in the game.
Immediately after Cumberland fouled out Nevada’s Cody Martin scored an old fashioned three-pointer by drawing a foul. This would cut the lead to three.
After Nevada would tie the game up with a Caleb Martin three.
Cincinnati would then come up empty handed on the next possession and Nevada would storm down and take a two-point lead with 9.1 seconds left thanks to Josh Hall.
Cincinnati would botch the last possession capping off an improbable 22-point comeback for the Wolf Pack.
Now Nevada will face another Cinderella in Loyola-Chicago in the Sweet Sixteen.
