Josh Nickelberry drained 15 points, but Cincinnati swept past La Salle 78-60.
Explorers guard Khalil Brantley added 12 off the bench, but it was the second loss in as many games for La Salle (5-6), which dropped a contest to City 6 foe, Drexel, at home last Saturday.
Viktor Lahkin and David DeJulius powered the Bearcats (8-4), scoring 17 points each.
La Salle returns home to face Lafayette on Wednesday (2 p.m., ESPN+) before traveling to Howard on Dec. 29 (2 p.m.) and VCU on New Year’s Eve (2 p.m., ESPN+).
