Freshman Lance Stephenson put on a show Saturday in his first public appearance as a member of the University of Cincinnati basketball team.

Playing in an intrasqad scrimmage before the football game, Stephenson scored 22 points in 25 minutes to lead the Red team to a 50-43 victory over the Black team.

He also made two nifty passes, including a bounce pass that led to a layup in transition and an alley-oop pass to led to a Darnell Wilks dunk.

“The guy can play offense,” said UC coach Mick Cronin. “He’s got a lot of natural, God-given ability. I think our style of play will help Lance.”

Playing on the Red team with Stephenson were Cashmere Wright, Deonta Vaughn, Yancy Gates and Biggie McClain.


“The good part about it for Lance,” Cronin said, “is that he doesn’t have to carry our team. He’s got a lot of other players around him.”
