    Cincinnati continues its unbeaten run

    CINCINNATI (Ticker) -- James White and Cincinnati cruised in a friendly "road" environment.

    White scored 12 of his 14 points in the first half as the Bearcats (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 14 AP) remained unbeaten with an 83-63 rout of Miami (Ohio) at the U.S. Bank Arena.

    Cincinnati (8-0) matched its best start since the 1999-2000 season by beating its oldest rival. The Bearcats and RedHawks have met 140 times and Cincinnati has won the last six matchups.

    This was considered a "home game" for Miami, although it was played downtown, just a short bus ride from Cincinnati's campus. The Bearcats improved to 109-50 at the building formerly known as the Riverfront Coliseum, which served as their home from 1976-87.

    White, who made his debut a week ago, turned in his best effort by coming off the bench to torch Miami early and often. Field Williams also scored 14 points as Cincinnati placed four players in double figures.

    Miami (4-5) has not beaten Cincinnati since the 1990-91 season.
