HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (AP) – Jacob Evans III had 24 points and eight rebounds as Cincinnati recovered from back-to-back losses and handed Mississippi State its first defeat.

The Bearcats (8-2) were coming off losses to crosstown rival Xavier and Florida that dropped them from No. 11 to the fringe of the rankings. They ended the slump with a solid defensive showing against the Southeastern Conference’s last unbeaten team, blocking 11 shots.

Aric Holman matched his career high with 18 points for Mississippi State (8-1), which was off to its best start since 2003-04. The Bulldogs shot a season-low 30 percent from the field.
