UC stunned by Presbyterian

CINCINNATI (AP) - Khalid Mutakabbir led Presbyterian's comeback from a 15-point deficit and hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 7.6 seconds left Saturday, rallying the Blue Hose to a 56-54 upset of No. 20 Cincinnati for one of their biggest wins in five years of Division I basketball.

The Blue Hose (3-2) trailed by 15 with 10 minutes to go. Mutakabbir hit one big shot after another, including his 3 from the left wing that gave Presbyterian its first lead of the second half.

He matched his career high with 25 points.

Cincinnati (2-1) had the last shot, but point guard Cashmere Wright's attempt went too hard off the rim, sending the Blue Hose into a celebration at midcourt while the crowd of 4,960 booed. The Bearcats opened the game in a 1-for-16 shooting slump and made only 35.5 percent for the game.
