Cincinnati coach Mick Cronin said his team's "a lack of toughness and defensive breakdowns" are big reasons why the No. 5 Bearcats lost at Houston on Thursday night.

Cincinnati shot just 6-for-19 (31.6%) in the second half vs. Houston, including a FG drought of nearly 12 minutes down the stretch. The Bearcats got out rebounded 36-27. Both of those bit them tonight.

Cincinnati's loss at Houston will likely drop them from the No. 2-seed line in Joe Lunardi's Bracketology, with Texas Tech likely being the beneficiary to move up. The Cougars, who were a 10-seed coming into the night, scored another big resume win after picking one up over Wichita State in January.

Houston upsets No. 5 Cincinnati 67-62, ending the Bearcats nation-leading 16-game winning streak. It's the first time the Cougars have beaten two top-10 opponents in a season since 1984.

Ironically, Cincinnati's loss to Houston also finally gives Cincinnati its first win over a likely NCAA Tournament team.
