Spiders never find rhythm in loss to no.12 Cincinnati

GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS -

This is one the Richmond Spiders will try to forget quickly. 

12 Cincinnati players tallied points and Richmond never seemed to be in the game, falling to the number 12 Bearcats, 75-48. The loss drops the Spiders to 1-1 in the Cayman Islands Classic.

Richmond found itself in a deep hole early, trailing 31-6 and 40-14 at halftime. The Spiders went nearly 13 minutes in the first half without scoring a field goal, before a three-pointer with 40 seconds left in the frame by De'Monte Buckingham snapped that drought. Cincinnati used a 17-0 run to break open the game.

The Spiders found a little bit more offense in the second half, but the game was already well out of reach. 

Richmond shot just 38 percent from the floor, while Cincinnati countered with a 53 percent clip. The Bearcats won the rebounding battle, 34-22, and knocked down 12 triples in the contest. 

Jacob Gilyard paced the Spiders with 12 points in the loss. De'Monte Buckingham posted six points and seven rebounds. Khawn Fore made his season debut, playing 14 minutes and scoring a point and tallying an assist. 

The Spiders fall to 1-3 on the season, and have trailed by at least 30 points in each of their three losses. They'll look to bounce back on Wednesday in the third place game against Louisiana-Lafayette at 5:00pm ET.
