St. Joseph’s is moving on in the NCAA tournament. Barely.
The Hawks scored a 78–76 win over the Bearcats in a tooth-and-nail game between eight and nine seeds on Friday. Cincinnati appeared to tie the game as time expired in regulation, only for the Bearcats’ buzzer-beating dunk to be overturned to no basket.
The call was close, but went in favor of the Hawks, who will play Oregon in the next round.
