GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Leonard Stokes scored six of his 16 in the final 4:38 to help Cincinnati beat East Carolina 59-53 on Wednesday night.

The Bearcats led twice by as many as 10, the last at 39-29 with 13:14 left. But East Carolina went on a 16-8 run to get within two with 5:18 to play.

Cincinnati pushed the lead back to seven, then center Moussa Badiane answered with a short hook and a three-point play to get East Carolina within 52-50 with 2:14 to go.

Jason Maxiell and Stokes countered with two free throws each for Cincinnati before Belton Rivers cut the six-point lead to three with a 3-pointer with 21 seconds left. That was the closest the Pirates would get as the Bearcats made 3 of 4 free throws to end the game.

Gabriel Mikulas scored 15 to lead the Pirates, who lost their fourth consecutive game.

MEMPHIS 77, HOUSTON 66: Chris Massie scored 22 and had 16 rebounds as the host Tigers snapped a two-game losing streak. Memphis shot 52 percent in the second as the Tigers built a double-digit lead early and maintained it. Houston lost for the eighth time in nine games. Andre Owens led the Cougars with 22 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

TCU 93, TULANE 84: Corey Santee had 25 points and six assists for the host Horned Forgs. Jamal Brown added 16 rebounds for TCU. Tulane was led by Waitari Marsh, who had 20 points on 7-of-9 from the field and 5-of-6 from the free-throw line. Tulane made 34-of-61 from the field to 30-of-65 for TCU, but the Horned Frogs had an edge at the free-throw line, making 28-of-35 to 12-of-20 for Tulane.


GA. TECH 66, ELON 47: Chris Bosh had 21 points and nine rebounds as the host Yellow Jackets rallied. The Phoenix has lost 10 of 11 after a 4-1 start. Georgia Tech took the lead for good on a three-point play by Bosh with 16:17 left, then put Elon away later with a 15-1 run.


ARKANSAS 73, LSU 65: Eric Ferguson scored a season-high 19 and Michael Jones added 16 to lead the host Razorbacks to its first conference win. LSU wasted its opportunities at the free-throw line in the second half, and Arkansas got valuable help from senior role players Larry Satchell and Blake Eddins.


SAVANNAH ST. 60, B-CC 50: Sherrard Reddick scored 17 off the bench, and the visiting Tigers won their second game of the season. Maurice Riddick scored a game-high 19 for the Wildcats, who shot 31.4 percent from the field and converted 14 of 28 free throws.
