(TSX / STATS) -- HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Coming off two straight losses and with a trip to UCLA looming this weekend, the Cincinnati Bearcats desperately needed a win.

"In college basketball, every win is important," said Bearcats guard Jacob Evans III. "But, it was important for us to get back on track, to build that confidence."

Evans scored 24 points and Kyle Washington added a season-high 16, helping No. 25 Cincinnati hand Mississippi State its first loss of the season, 65-50 on Tuesday night at BB&T Arena.
