CINCINNATI(AP) -- Deonta Vaughn came off the bench in the second half and scored 12 of his 15 points, helping Cincinnati rally from an early 15-point deficit to a 69-62 win over Prairie View A&M on Monday night.

The Bearcats (1-0) still trailed by eight points at halftime, struggling to run their offense against the smaller Panthers (1-1). Vaughn, Cincinnati's top returning scorer, missed all six of his shots in the half.

After starting the second half on the bench, Vaughn made a layup and a pair of 3s during a 14-point run that put Cincinnati ahead to stay.

Darnell Hugee led the Panthers with 16 points.

Cincinnati freshman forward Lance Stephenson missed his first four shots in his collegiate debut, then limped off after apparently hurting his lower left leg. The prep star from Brooklyn returned and finished with seven points on 2-of-10 shooting from the field.
