Cincinnati Donald Little hit a 15-foot jumper with 3 seconds to play Friday night as No. 4 Cincinnati blew a pair of huge leads but rallied for a 63-62 victory over No. 9 Marquette.
Cincinnati (26-2, 13-1 Conference USA) snapped a three-game losing streak against the Golden Eagles and took sole possession of first place. The Bearcats have won each of the conference's six regular-season titles.
Marquette (23-4, 12-2) overcame deficits of 16 and 12 points, but missed a pivotal free throw in the closing seconds and left Little Â a 6-foot-11 center who rarely shoots away from the basket Â open for the winning shot.
Kordell Henry's heave from just inside halfcourt bounced off the back of the rim as the buzzer sounded.
