Watch this date '00: No. 1 UC vs No. 15 Temple

Flashback: February 20, 2000

No. 1 Cincinnati vs No. 15 Temple.

What a match-up this was at The Shoemaker Center. The Sunday afternoon game was on ABC with Dick Vitale and Brent Musburger on the call.

How good was the theatre of Bob Huggins vs Temple Don Chaney?

The Bearcats entered as the No. 1 team in the country, winners of 42 in a row at home.

But the Owls and point guard Pepe Sanchez knocked off the Bearcats 77-69. 

With the Owls trailing, 59-53, and 6:00 remaining, Sanchez drilled a 3-pointer to ignite a 14-2 run. 

Freshman DerMarr Johnson scored 16 points for Cincinnati, which also had its national-best winning streak halted at 16 games. 

HERE is the UC roster that season.
