In what was an absolutely brutal game, the Cincinnati Bearcats lose to St John's when Mo Harkless gets a tip in with less than a second on the clock. Not to place all the blame on Sean Kilpatrick, but he was the one guarding Harkless and let him go when D'Angelo Harrison drove to the basket. No one else was around to get a body on Harkless, who had the easiest tip in of his life. The high of UC coming back from double digits after a Jeremiah Davis 3 was short lived. 

UC played horribly. They were 20-76. They took 32 three point shots. They made 7. The defense played well, but UC had no answers to the St John's 1-3-1 zone. The starters didn't give a whole lot scoring wise, 12 points from everyone not Sean Kilpatrick. It's about time to stop messing around and start Yancy Gates. He had 10-7. The offense was so good for so long, but when shots stopped falling, the Bearcats couldn't score at all. No one got to the basket. No one got to the foul line. The starters shoot 3 free throws. No good enough. It's early in the season, but this is a brutal resume loss. You can't lose to middling teams at home. UC has done it 3 times this year. Bah. I hate watching St John's and Cincinnati play.
