Walker scores 21, leads No. 2 Houston past Cincinnati, 72-59

CINCINNATI (AP) — Jarace Walker scored a game-high 21 points, J’Wan Roberts added 14 points and 11 rebounds and No. 2 Houston defeated Cincinnati 72-59 on Sunday. The Cougars, who defeated the Bearcats in each of the last two American Athletic Conference tournaments, extended their winning streak to seven straight over their soon-to-be Big 12 Conference foe. Both Houston and Cincinnati are scheduled to leave the AAC for the Big 12 on July 1. Cincinnati guard Landers Nolley II knocked down his first four shots — all from 3-point range — to keep the Bearcats, within striking distance. Nolley scored zero points the rest of the way.
