CINCINNATI (AP) - Yancy Gates had his second double-double of the season, and Cincinnati pulled away from Northwestern State 71-43 on Monday night, two days after the Bearcats' stunning home-court loss to Presbyterian College.
Cincinnati (3-1) fully used its bench and had four players in double figures, led by Gates with 18 points and 11 rebounds.
Northwestern State (2-3) suffered a significant loss when senior center William Mosley went down hard after trying to block a shot midway through the second half and held his right knee in pain.
Mosley barely put any weight on the leg as he was helped to the bench.
Mosley led Division I with 4.9 blocks per game last season. He's the Demons' top rebounder, as well. James Hulbin and Shamir Davis led the Demons with 13 points each.
