UC Women Pull Upset on Senior Night

CINCINNATI (AP) - Shareese Ulis scored 20 points and led a

3-point barrage that swept Cincinnati to a 65-62 victory over No.

20 Marquette on Monday night, ending the Bearcats' 13-game losing

streak.

Cincinnati (9-19, 2-14 Big East) kept a small lead most of the

way behind Ulis, who went 6 of 12 from behind the arc. The

Bearcats, winless since beating South Florida on Jan. 5, were 13 of

29 overall on 3s.

Shelly Bellman's 3 put Cincinnati ahead to stay 64-62 with 1:25

left. Ulis had a steal, and Bellman was fouled and made both free

throws with 21 seconds left.

Marquette (22-7, 10-6) had two shots to tie it. Tatiyiana

McMorris missed a 3 with 11 seconds left, but Marquette got the

rebound and passed it back out to McMorris, who missed again with 1

second left.

McMorris led Marquette with 18 points.
