Cincinnati didn’t play particularly well Thursday at Temple. The 19th-ranked Bearcats shot less than 40 percent from the floor, trailed most of the game and looked unfocused for much of the night.
Jacob Evans made sure none of that really mattered in the end.
The Cincy junior delivered the game-winning jumpshot with under a second to play to send the Bearcats to a 55-53 victory, Cincinnati’s sixth-straight.
It wasn’t the prettiest of final possessions for Evans and the Bearcats – zero passes and a long 2-point jumper – but when the game-winner drops, who cares? A game-winner is a game-winner, and a W is a W.
