Reagan Jackson led the Bearcats with 16 points. Jillian Hayes (15), A’riel Jackson (14) and Ta’Ziah Jenks (12) also reached double figures for Cincinnati, which snapped a four-game losing streak.

Tech shot 33.3%, including 24% from beyond the arc. Nearly half (25 of 51) of the Lady Raiders’ shot attempts were three-pointers.

Bailey Maupin led Tech with 16 points and five rebounds. Jasmine Shavers followed with 10 points on 2 of 10 shooting, along with five rebounds.
