UCLA beats Cincinnati 79-67 to earn Sweet 16 trip

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) UCLA had trouble getting its high-octane offense going in the first half against Cincinnati's big, athletic defenders.

Once the Bruins got rolling, there was no stopping them - all the way into the Sweet 16.

Next up: A blue blood rematch with Kentucky in the South Regional semifinals.
