Clark’s 3-point play lifts Cincinnati over UConn 58-57
HARTFORD — Gary Clark’s 3-point play with 12 seconds left lifted Cincinnati to a 58-57 win over Connecticut on Thursday night.
Clark and Farad Cobb scored 13 points apiece for the Bearcats (16-6, 6-3 American Athletic), who won their third consecutive game.
Sterling Gibbs had 14 points to lead UConn (14-6, 4-3), which had won three in a row coming in.
Gibbs missed a jumper on UConn’s final possession. Shonn Miller could not put in a follow-up attempt and Jalen Adams’ desperation shot at the buzzer hit the rim and bounced away.
Cincinnati scored just four points over the final seven minutes, but Clark was able to draw a foul on Miller in the lane, and his jumper and free throw provided the winning margin.
