    As Cincinnati expected, Wichita State had one last run down the stretch -- enough to pull even, but not overtake the No. 24 Bearcats.

    Nysier Brooks scored 13 points and Cane Broome hit the go-ahead layup with 23.5 seconds left to give No. 24 Cincinnati a 66-63 victory over Wichita State in Saturday's semifinals of the American Athletic Conference tournament.

    Houston moves into Sweet 16 for first time in 35 years

    Houston's fans chanted "Sweet 16" in the final minute of the Cougars' NCAA Tournament win over Ohio State.

    The celebration was long overdue -- it's been 35 years since the Cougars have made this trip.

    "I saw a lot of proud Cougars up there behind us tonight," Houston coach Kelvin Sampson said, "and the ones I was happiest for were the guys that's been supporting this program since those days."

    Corey Davis scored 21 points to help Houston beat the Buckeyes 74-59 in a second-round Midwest Region game Sunday night. It marked the Cougars' 33rd win of the season -- breaking the school's season record set by the 1983-84 team. That was the last Houston squad to reach the Sweet 16.
