What do you get if you take a 12-21 team, take away 5 of it's top 8 players, and move it to a much tougher conference? Sadness. Lots and lots of sadness.

They do have their top 2 guys back in senior point guard Myles Mack (14.9 points, 4.3 assists per game last year) and junior power...

CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bearcats won their eighth straight game and are 4-0 in conference play for the first time in 10 seasons after putting a stranglehold on Rutgers in the second half Saturday in a 71-51 victory at Fifth Third Arena. Don't expect any wild celebrations in Clifton, though.
The Bearcats feel like they are just starting to find their groove.
Even without seniors...
If the American conference had a player of the month award, it would be hard for that award not to go to Justin Jackson because he has picked up his third straight American Player of the Week honor. He's got these awards on lock. It's no surprise because Jackson has been performing like one of the best players in the country, let alone the league, lately.
