Cincinnati defeats Miami to remain undefeated

OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - Dion Dixon scored a career-high 23 points, and Cincinnati remained one of nine unbeaten Division I teams on Tuesday night, pulling away to a 64-48 win over Miami (Ohio) in its first trip to Oxford in nearly 18 years.

The Bearcats (11-0) are on their longest winning streak since 2004-05, when they opened 11-0 in Bob Huggins' final season as coach.

Dixon led a fast-break offense that pulled away late in the first half after Miami (5-7) led by seven. Ibrahima Thomas had his third career double-double, getting 11 points and matching his career high with 13 rebounds as the Bearcats dominated inside.

Nick Winbush scored 11 points for Miami, which has lost its last 12 games against Cincinnati.
