Season Review: Cashmere Wright

The season review series is down to the final two players. All that remains are the star players from the 2012-13 Cincinnati Bearcats. In hindsight, I feel like I should have started the series with Cashmere Wright or Sean Kilpatrick and ended it with the other. I'm saving Kilpatrick for last since he's the most important player in this series because he's the most important...

The Season is Over

Creighton defeated Cincinnati 67-63 this afternoon in the NCAA tournament. I don't really want to talk about it right now, so I'm going to say something else instead.  Thank you, Cashmere Wright.

No. 5 Georgetown 62, Cincinnati 43

All that Cincinnati can do now is wait.

Cincinnati 61 South Florida 53

The seniors saved senior day. Cashmere Wright, JaQuon Parker and Cheikh Mbodj scored 37 of Cincinnati's 61 points on Saturday afternoon.

Breaking Down Crunch Time Shooting

Cincinnati has played a lot of close games in a row. 7 to be exact. The last time we were able to breathe easy enjoying a win was when Cincinnati topped Rutgers 68-58 one month ago. Since UC has played a lot of close games, people have been very upset with the crunch time offense. Since I am a man of the people, and have nothing to do tonight, I thought it would interesting to...

Bearcats Shut Down by Pittsburgh

Cincinnati followed a loss to Providence where they looked horrible offensively with a loss to Pittsburgh where they looked horrible offensively. Cincinnati is 18-6, 6-5.  A large, large, large part of this was because of the excellent Panther defense. There is a reason that Pitt has amazing defensive numbers. They get in your shorts and make you run offense. They go hard. I really...

Wright closer to form for Bearcats

Halfway through the Big East season, No. 17 Cincinnati is in solid shape. The Bearcats have their point guard closer to full strength, and they're only a game out of first place. The best indicator of how well things are going: Coach Mick Cronin doesn't want them thinking about it. The Bearcats (18-4, 6-3) are tied for third at the midpoint of league play, trailing No....
