Washington powers No. 15 Cincinnati past Tulsa

(TSX / STATS) -- Troy Caupain missed a dunk early in the second half Friday night and gave a sheepish look toward the Cincinnati bench.

It was one of the few things that went wrong for the No. 15 Bearcats during a 80-61 drumming of Tulsa in a quarterfinal round mismatch at the American Athletic Conference tournament at XL Center in Hartford, Conn.

In posting its third win of the season over the Golden Hurricane, the second-seeded Bearcats displayed efficiency on offense and typical stinginess on defense. It shot 49.2 percent from the floor, including 53.3 percent in the second half, and was 8 of 20 from the 3-point line.
