CINCINNATI (AP) - JaQuon Parker scored 16 of his 21 points in the second half Saturday, and No. 11 Cincinnati remained unbeaten by overcoming another poor start for a 68-58 victory over Wright State.

The Bearcats improved to 12-0 for the eighth time in school history and the second time in three seasons. Cincinnati won its first 15 games in 2010-11.

For the second game in a row, the Bearcats struggled in half-court offense and scored only 22 points in the opening half. Parker scored Cincinnati's first eight in the second half, sparking a 23-6 run that put the Bearcats in control for the first time.

Titus Rubles added 11 points and nine rebounds. Justin Jackson had nine points, seven rebounds and two of Cincinnati's 10 blocked shots.

Wright State (8-4) got 14 points from Jerran Young and 13 from J.T. Yoho.
