CINCINNATI (AP) — Farad Cobb hit a 3-pointer that put Cincinnati in control in overtime, and the Bearcats pulled away to a 71-62 victory over No. 19 San Diego State on Wednesday night after letting a late lead slip away in regulation.

The Bearcats (7-2) were coming off a 56-55 double-overtime loss at Nebraska on Saturday night that underscored their season-long struggle to hit shots. Cobb made the one in overtime that made the difference and finished with 12 points.

San Diego State (7-3) lost for only the second time in its last 20 overtime games.

Winston Shepard had a game-high 17 points, including a pair of free throws with 3.9 seconds left that tied it 57-all and sent it overtime. The Aztecs were outscored 14-5 in overtime.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — D'Angelo Russell scored 21 points and Marc Loving had 15, leading No. 12 Ohio State to a victory over North Carolina A&T.

Bruce Beckford had 26 points and Arturs Bremers 14 for the Aggies (1-11), who have lost 11 in a row — the last 10 on the road — after opening with a win against Division III Greensboro College.

NO. 16 WASHINGTON 86, GRAMBLING STATE 38

SEATTLE (AP) — Shawn Kemp Jr. scored 13 of his 21 points in the first half, Andrew Andrews added 16 points and No. 16 Washington raced past Grambling State.

Washington (9-0) extended its best start since beginning the 2005-06 season 11-0, leading 45-13 at halftime and by as many as 51 in the second half.

Kemp and his teammates dominated the undersized Tigers on the interior. Kemp made 6 of 9 shots in the first half, four coming on dunks. Robert Upshaw added 15 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds.

A'Torri Shine led the Tigers (2-7) with 12 points. Grambling was outscored 157-81 in a Pacific Northwest swing against Oregon State and Washington.

NO. 25 MICHIGAN STATE 66, EASTERN MICHIGAN 46

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Bryn Forbes scored 14 points and Travis Trice added 13, and No. 25 Michigan State denied Eastern Michigan its second straight upset win over an in-state foe.

Eastern Michigan beat Michigan in Ann Arbor last week, but the Eagles (8-2) never led against Michigan State. Eastern Michigan shot 23 percent from the field, and although its 2-3 zone caused the Spartans (8-3) to look ragged at times.

The Spartans did lose standout senior Branden Dawson to an apparent left wrist injury with 15:30 remaining in the game. Dawson took a hard fall while trying to dunk the ball and did not return.

Raven Lee led the Eagles with 12 points.
