Cincinnati has touch in handling Kansas State

Troy Caupain scored 23 points, Kyle Washington added 16 and defensive-minded Cincinnati shot it way past Kansas State 75-61 Friday night in the South Region of the NCAA Tournament.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Cincinnati sounded like a confident bunch going into the first round, and it's easy to see why. The Bearcats were terrific in all phases in beating Kansas State 75-61 to salvage a little respect for the No. 6 seeds in this tournament. Mick Cronin's team has now won 30 games for just the second time in program history, and it will be a tough out in the second round.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Kansas State made a little run at Cincinnati to get within two possessions, but the Bearcats showed their experience and didn't get rattled. They're owning the glass -- with a 25-16 rebounding edge -- and continue to make shots. Bruce Weber is searching for answers right now.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Cincinnati shot a blistering 65.2 percent in the first half and put back two of its eight misses on offensive rebounds. Troy Caupain was magnificent in making all five of his shots and not committing a turnover. Kansas State has to feel a little fortunate that it trails by only 11 points after that Bearcats' offensive tour de force.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Cincinnati has gained a reputation over the years of being a physical defensive team that struggles to score. That hasn't been the case this year, as the Bearcats have been far more efficient than usual on the offensive end. They've hit their first seven shots so far against Kansas State, as if to emphasize the point.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Is 11 the new 12 in the NCAA tournament? The 12-seed over a 5-seed upset is legendary, but so far this year the 11s are unbeaten in the first round, with Xavier, USC and Rhode Island all winning. Kansas State will try to make it 4-for-4 when it plays Cincinnati coming up in a bit here in Sacramento.

ESPN Stats and Information  

More fans picked Xavier and Middle Tennessee to win on Thursday than any other seeds 11 or lower in ESPN's Tournament Challenge, and both delivered mild upsets. Friday's most popular upset picks include 11 seeds Rhode Island and Kansas State.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Kansas State already has one tournament win, having beaten Wake Forest to get into the field of 64. But BPI predicts that this will be the end of the line as the Wildcats take on Cincinnati.
