Cincinnati beat Rutgers 71-51 because Cincinnati is good at basketball and Rutgers sucks.
The Bearcats hit 31-40 from the free throw line. Shaquille Thomas ended the game with a big dunk. It was the only exciting thing to happen the entire game.
Cincinnati is now 15-2, 4-0 in the American.
With Cincinnati unable to get to the free-throw line, Shaquille Thomas took a trip the hard way.
Creighton's Doug McDermott was double-teamed in the corner and swung his left elbow into Thomas' face to break free with 53 seconds left. McDermott was whistled for a flagrant foul and Thomas went to the line.
Make both, and the Bearcats would trail by one. He clanked two instead...
