Bearcats Roll Radford

CINCINNATI (AP) - Point guard Cashmere Wright scored a

career-high 25 points, and Cincinnati won its second straight game

with two starters suspended, beating Radford 101-70 on Saturday.

The Bearcats (7-3) opened with a 12-point run and kept going

against the Highlanders (3-9), who have lost eight in a row.

There was no drama to Cincinnati's first home game since its

26-point loss at Xavier that ended in a brawl a week earlier. Each

school suspended four players, handing out punishments ranging from

one to six games.

The Bearcats were missing power forward Yancy Gates and center

Cheikh Mbodj, serving the second of their six-game suspensions.

Reserve point guard Ge'Lawn Guyn was back after a one-game penalty

and scored five points.

Jareal Smith had 22 points for Radford. Cincinnati scored 100

points for the first time since Dec. 30, 2005, under interim coach

Andy Kennedy.
