CINCINNATI (AP)—Deonta Vaughn made nine 3-pointers on his way to a career-high 36 points to lead Cincinnati to a 74-59 win over Coastal Carolina on Friday night.
Marvin Gentry added 11 points for the Bearcats (2-2), who avoided their first 1-3 start since the 1983-84 season, when they finished 3-25.
Freshman Anthony Breeze scored a career-high 25 points for Coastal Carolina (2-1). Jack Leasure, who averaged 33.5 points in the Chanticleers’ first two games, added 15.
Vaughn finished one short of tying Cincinnati’s single-game record for 3-pointers. Melvin Levett made 10 in Cincinnati’s 106-54 win over Eastern Kentucky on Dec. 20, 1997.
