Bearcats coach Mick Cronin was preparing yet another post-game diatribe on Saturday when his team trailed DePaul with less than five minutes remaining at Fifth Third Arena. But unlike the three previous games where UC faded down the stretch, the Bearcats rose up and closed the game on a 12-2 run, avoiding their first four-game losing streak in four years.

Cashmere Wright Powers Cats in a Garden Party, live blog recap

Debated on whether to live blog recap this one. In order to try and ignore the Kansas/Baylor games and Syracuse/Georgetown, I am. It's not going to work out very well probably, but I'm giving it the old college try. It's what I do. It's part of my charm. I'm very charming.
