How often can a team go 13 minutes without missing a shot? Seldom. How often can that same team make all those shots and lose ground? Almost never. Virginia made its first eight shots of the second half against Cincinnati in an NCAA Tournament East regional semifinal last night at the Meadowlands. The Cavaliers, however, forgot, something along the way. The basketball. The rock, as usual, belonged to the Bearcats. While making all those shots, Virginia also committed nine turnovers.

Challenged mightily by a Cincinnati team small in stature and big in heart, the trash-talking, swaggering, arrogant and totally talented Michigan Wolverines powered their way to a berth in the NCAA tournament final last night. The five freshmen, who have made the Wolverines one of the more remarkable teams ever to get this far in the postseason, physically battered the smaller Bearcats, taking charge after weathering a scare in the first half. But it was one of the team's elders - junior James Voskuil - who keyed Michigan's 76-72 victory before a crowd of 50,379 at the Metrodome.

PASS, pass, pass, pass. Then, pass again before finding and making a wide-open shot. Jerian Grant scored 19 points and No. 17 Notre Dame used its patient offense to get open shots for a 66-60 victory Monday night over No. 21 Cincinnati. The Fighting Irish (14-1, 2-0 Big East) have won 12 straight for the first time since 2006-07. "That's been our program," coach Mike Brey said of his players' patience. "There's a culture of passing the ball here. " Cincinnati (13-3, 1-2)

CINCINNATI COACH Mick Cronin took the courtside microphone and thanked the crowd for its raucous support on Senior Night and all season long. "We'll see you in New York," Cronin said, referring to the Big East Tournament. "Then in the NCAA Tournament. " With a double-digit win last night, the Bearcats are a little closer to the field of 68. JaQuon Parker scored a career-high 28 points, leading Cincinnati to a 72-61 victory over No. 8 Marquette that embellished the Bearcats' NCAA Tournament chances.

Aaron Hutchins gave Marquette just what it needed - an exceptional performance and an upset of No. 21 Cincinnati. Hutchins, the senior guard who has battled minor injuries all season, scored eight of his 32 points in overtime as the Golden Eagles beat the visiting Bearcats, 66-63, last night. "It was nice to see the fire back in his eyes to take this game over," Marquette coach Mike Deane said. "When you have a senior, especially an All-America candidate, which I think he is, that's what you expect from him. " Marquette (12-4, 3-3 Conference USA)

Memphis needed overtime to do it, but grabbed sole possession of first place in the Great Midwestern Conference.

Freshman Lance Stephenson was fouled with less than a second left and made both free throws last night, rallying Cincinnati to a breakthrough 71-69 victory over 10th-ranked and visiting Connecticut in a wild Big East opener for both teams. Cincinnati (9-3) had lost all five previous games against UConn. The Bearcats led by 11 points before the Huskies made a late run, tying the game on Kemba Walker's three-pointer with 9.4 seconds to go. Stephenson dribbled into the lane and was fouled by Gavin Edwards as the buzzer sounded.

There were no style points for No. 4 Cincinnati, just a great escape and another big victory. The visiting Bearcats needed Melvin Levett's buzzer-beating shot to force overtime, then used consecutive three-pointers by Alvin Mitchell for a 62-61 victory over No. 17 Minnesota last night. "I am glad it's over," Cincinnati coach Bob Huggins said. "They are good . . . This was a great win for us. " Mitchell gave the Bearcats a 59-58 lead with two minutes left. He extended it to 62-58 with another trey 56 seconds later.

For most of the first half, it seemed as if Steve Logan were playing Boston University by himself. What's remarkable is that he was winning. Logan put on a dazzling display of shooting and playmaking while outscoring Boston U. by himself until well into the second half, leading top-seeded Cincinnati to an oh-so-easy 90-52 romp last night in a first-round West Regional game. It was a typical No. 1 vs. No. 16 mismatch, with the only question being whether Logan would score more points than the Terriers (22-10)

Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, only three No. 15 seeds have beaten a No. 2. For the longest time yesterday, Northern Arizona looked as if it was about to make it four. The Big Sky champion Lumberjacks, playing in their first NCAA Tournament game, were beating Cincinnati by six points with 9 1/2 minutes remaining. But in a game that had 12 lead changes and seven ties, the Bearcats survived, 65-62, on a three-pointer from the left wing by senior guard D'Juan Baker with four seconds to play.

TOM BARWIN wasn't all that surprised when his son Connor, a freshman football player at Cincinnati, called home in January 2006 to impart the news that he was joining the Bearcats basketball team. For one thing, Connor had grown up more of a youth basketball star than a football player, working tirelessly on a court built in the Barwin backyard for him and his three older brothers. For another, this was Connor responding to a need - Cincinnati had fired basketball coach Bob Huggins, players had left the team, the Bearcats needed help.

A MONTH AGO, Temple dropped three games in 8 days, its only losses since mid-December. In the first two, at home against Tulsa and SMU, senior lead guard Will Cummings was limited with a lower-leg injury. Then, at Cincinnati, he couldn't even play. The Owls went down by 31, after being within one at halftime. Last night at the Liacouras Center, they got their first chance to get one of those teams back. Next week, they'll get two more when they travel to SMU and Tulsa. This time, Cummings went the full 40. It made a difference.

Connor Barwin arrived during halftime for LeSean McCoy's charity basketball game at Neumann University Saturday afternoon. The Eagles linebacker wore a pair of low-top running shoes and cutoff jeans. He said he did not plan to play, but McCoy told him he needed him on his team in a game that also featured former Eagle DeSean Jackson, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, boxing champion Danny Garcia, and rapper Nelly. Barwin obliged. The former college basketball player showed he still had game, even while wearing denim.

The would-be hero was screaming as he ran downcourt pounding his chest, staring down the fans in the student section, who all had risen to their feet. Dalton Pepper, the soft-spoken transfer who struggled last season but has emerged as Temple's leading scorer in his senior year, was at the peak of one of the finest performances of his career. He scored a career-high 33 points, including 27 in the second half, to bring the Owls close, but not close enough, in an 80-76 loss to No. 15 Cincinnati in an American Athletic Conference game on Sunday afternoon at the Liacouras Center.

Temple opened the second half with a 19-0 run to come from behind for a 58-47 win at Cincinnati on Saturday afternoon. The Owls (10-7, 4-3 American Athletic) trailed, 22-13, at halftime after shooting a season-low 17 percent and committing 11 turnovers. The 13 points were the least points scored by Temple in a first half this season. Temple held the Bearcats (8-9, 1-5) scoreless for more than six minutes during the run. "It's definitely a positive," said Temple coach Tonya Cardoza.

CINCINNATI - Heading into Tuesday night's game against Cincinnati, Temple prepared for the Bearcats' defense, one of the stingiest in the nation at 56.2 points per game. But surprisingly, the Cincinnati offense was what doomed the Owls in a sloppy 69-58 loss at Fifth Third Arena. Bearcats leading scorer Sean Kilpatrick hadn't made more than one three-pointer in a game for the last six contests. But against the Temple defense, he suddenly found his touch from beyond the arc, finishing 6 of 13 from long range.

Five games into the season, Temple coach Matt Rhule has a good understanding of the growing pains associated with building a football program. Recruiting the right players and getting players from the previous coaching staff to buy into your system are all part of the challenge. But one thing the Temple coach has not had to deal with, unlike his counterpart in Friday night's game at Cincinnati, is being a grief counselor. First-year coach Tommy Tuberville has had the difficult task of coaching a Bearcats team (3-2, 0-1 American Athletic Conference)
