CINCINNATI (AP) Justin Jenifer knew the shot clock was down to a few seconds. He saw a small opening to the basket and knew that UCF's shot-blocking center would close it in a hurry.
He took the risk and made the shot that changed the game. Jenifer's layup barely eluded 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall's outstretched hand and put Cincinnati ahead to stay Thursday night.
He added a 3-pointer with 19.9 seconds left, rallying the Bearcats to a 60-55 victory in a matchup of two of the American Athletic's top defensive teams.
