WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Jarron Cumberland converted a go-ahead three-point play with 3.5 seconds remaining to lift Cincinnati to an 80-79 win over Wichita State on Thursday night.

Cincinnati led for most of the game but Wichita State took its first lead since midway through the first half on Dexter Dennis’ 3-pointer with 58 seconds remaining for a 76-75 lead. Cumberland answered with two free throws before Grant Sherfield made Wichita State’s eighth 3-pointer for a two-point lead.

After a timeout with 2.5 to go, Erik Stevenson inbounded the ball and got it back but his 3-pointer was off the mark at the buzzer.
