    CINCINNATI (Ticker) -- No. 12 Cincinnati tries to stay in the thick of the Conference USA race when it hosts Saint Louis on Wednesday at Fifth Third Arena.

    The Bearcats (18-5, 14-9 C-USA) are tied for second place in the league standings with Charlotte and Alabama-Birmingham, one game behind Memphis.

    Cincinnati snapped a two-game losing streak with a 66-61 overtime triumph over Louisville on Saturday. Field Williams, who led the Bearcats with 18 points, sent the game into overtime with a buzzer-beating basket.

    Tony Bobbitt added 11 points, including a 3-pointer with 96 seconds left in the extra period and a pair of free throws in the waning seconds, and Eric Hicks chipped in 10 points, a career-high 14 rebounds and six blocks.

    The Billikens (14-9, 7-5) have won three straight contests following a four-game losing streak.

    On Saturday, Saint Louis opened a three-game road trip with a 69-62 triumph at DePaul. Reggie Bryant matched a career high with 25 points for the Billikens, who rallied from a 15-point first-half deficit.

    The Bearcats own a 56-19 series advantage, including 31-5 all time in Cincinnati. The Bearcats had won 11 straight home meetings before Saint Louis came away with a 58-55 win here last season.
