(8) St. Joseph's Outlasts (9) Cincinnati In 78-76 Contest

In the final game of the night, the matchup between the Cincinnati Bearcats and St. Joseph's Hawks went down to the wire. The No. 8 seeded Hawks came out on top, beating the No. 9 Bearcats 78-76. 

UC nearly tied the game, but this dunk in the final seconds did not finish in time. 

Three players carried the Bearcats in the game. Jacob Evans had 26 points and nine rebounds. Farad Cobb had 12 points and Coreontae DeBerry added 18 points. 

Much like UC, three players led St. Joe's. DeAndre' Bembry had 25 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks. Isaiah Miles ended up with 19, while Aaron Brown had 12. 

St. Joe's advances to the Round of 32. Oregon awaits, as the Ducks blew out Holy Cross earlier Friday.
