New Orleans -- On a night that celebrated Tulane's lone senior, Cameron Reynolds, 10th-ranked Cincinnati came into the Devlin Fieldhouse and played spoilers, beating the Green Wave 78-49.
Melvin Frazier led Tulane with 13 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals, while Caleb Daniels added 10 points. Reynolds, who's averaged more than 15 points per game this season, was held to just 9 points. For the Bearcats, Kyle Washington led all scorers with 16 points and 7 rebounds.
