Cook scores 20 and Tulane holds off Cincinnati 68-60


CINCINNATI (AP) — Jalen Cook scored 20 points and Tulane beat Cincinnati 68-60 in the Bearcats’ American Athletic Conference season opener.

The Green Wave built a 25-8 lead and extended the margin to 48-25 at halftime.

A four-minute Tulane scoring drought down the stretch helped Cincinnati go from down 63-48 to within 63-56 with a minute left, but Cook made 3 of 4 foul shots and Quentin Scott added a layup to seal it.

Jeremiah Davenport scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Cincinnati.
