CINCINNATI -- Ten days off did nothing to slow down Cincinnati. Tulane didn't handle its break as well.
Jarron Cumberland scored a game-high 22 points, Justin Jenifer added a career-high 18 and the Bearcats opened defense of their American Athletic Conference championship with a no-doubt 93-61 win over the Green Wave on Wednesday.
Cumberland credited tough practices with lots of running for helping the Bearcats shake off the rust of not having played since December 22.
"We practiced a lot of transition and did a lot of running to get our legs back," the junior guard said.
