Cincinnati 61 Central Florida 58

Last night's win over UCF can be something that is easily written as a semi-fluke if the Bearcats perform up to their standard tonight. That's the quick analysis. Cincinnati played awful but they made enough plays to be a team that just isn't good. They caught some breaks in the sense that Kasey Wilson had some wide open 3s that he missed short and that he missed long...

Bearcats Get Past UCF 61-58

Kevin Johnson scored 8 big points that were capped off by a huge 3 with a minute or so left to push the margin to 6 in a 61-58 Cincinnati win over Central Florida. The Bearcats did not play well at all. UCF went with a variation of the box and 1 on Sean Kilpatrick for the second half. The Cats had no answers for it. It's a major, major concern going forward. Especially since...

Cincy's Legaux tries to overcome knee injury

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Dressed in his red No. 4 jersey, Munchie Legaux stood behind the line of scrimmage with a football gripped by his back shoulder, as though he was going to throw a pass during a full-speed drill. He's not ready for that yet. Cincinnati's senior quarterback is still months away from getting cleared for full contact following a gruesome injury to his left...

Jackson, Kilpatrick and Rubles Lead Cincinnati to Senior Night Victory

97-84 was the kind of bizarre final score for a Cincinnati basketball game. Tonight was an offensive explosion that we haven't seen in a UC game in a long time. The Bearcats got a career high 24 points from Titus les on 9 of 13 shooting and 6-6 from the line. The points, field goals and field goal attempts were all career highs. Titus was just one of the seniors that had a monster...

Healthy Kay shows off at UC pro day

CINCINNATI -- Brendon Kay hasn't felt this good in forever. It's easy to tell spending the last couple of months in South Florida has been good for the former Cincinnati Bearcat quarterback. There's a definition to his muscles and a definition to his smile. Kay was hurting when UC started preseason practices last July and he never got any better. He still played in all...

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The first-place cushion that No. 15 Cincinnati enjoyed for most of the season has eroded. The Bearcats head into the final week needing two more wins to get the first American Athletic Conference title. And that means getting their offense in order. Fast. The Bearcats (24-5, 13-3) have lost three of their last five games, including each of the past two. They'...

Ref Ted Valentine and Bearcats Coach Mike Cronin Prove Professional Standards Need to be Reestablished in College Hoops

This has to be one of the most ridiculous scenes in college basketball this season.

UC Tumbles Out of the Top 10

Fresh off the loss to Louisville, the Cincinnati Bearcats find themselves ranked outside the top 10. They come in at 11 in the AP poll and 12 in the coaches poll. They dropped 4 spots in the AP, 3 in the coaches. Eh, it happens. The only teams ranked above UC that lost were Duke and Syracuse. Neither one of them was dropping. This is the part where I say that the most important poll...

Late letdown costs UC, irks Cronin

CINCINNATI -- The book on the Cincinnati Bearcats is very much open. The general plot line -- very dependent on Sean Kilpatrick, offensively-challenged everywhere else -- is simple. The defense seems aggressive and nasty enough to carry a team that entered Saturday's game vs. Louisville with 24 wins in 27 games and ranked No. 9 in the country. That's all fair and accurate...
