The victory was the second of Saturday's semifinals where the underdog tried to overtake the better seed. Memphis rallied, but fell to Houston 61-58. That sets up the championship showdown between the conference's top two teams - Cincinnati as the No. 2 seed and top-seeded Houston. Cincinnati appeared in control with a 62-55 lead with 4:44 left, when the Shockers made their run. They eventually would catch the Bearcats at 62-all, then again deadlocked at 63. Cincinnati faces top-seed Houston in Sunday's title game art 3:15 pm on ESPN.

Playing its third game in less than 72 hours, Jordan Murphy (201-F-97) and Minnesota (21-13, 9-11 Big Ten) appeared to be out of energy. Michigan (28-5, 15-5 Big Ten) closed the first half on a 25-6 run and then poured on an 11-2 run early in the second to bury the Gophers en route to a final score of 76-49. Murphy contributed 10 points and led the team with 6 rebounds.

tournament.
