No. 15 Cincinnati survives Connecticut, reaches AAC final

(TSX / STATS) -- Gary Clark lost part of a tooth Saturday and also missed time in the second half because of leg cramps.

That doesn't even begin to compare with the damage the Cincinnati forward did to Connecticut's season.

Going 15 of 16 at the foul line and scoring a game-high 25 points, Clark led the 12th-ranked Bearcats to an 81-71 win over the Huskies at the XL Center in Hartford, Conn., advancing them to Sunday's championship game of the American Athletic Conference tournament.
