NCAA Tournament: 8) Cincinnati Bearcats 66 9) Purdue Boilermakers 65

The past couple of years of early NCAA tournament losses were ringing through my head last night. With Purdue up by 7 with 48 seconds left, it wasn’t hard to get sullen about a reality where Cincinnati went down in the first round three straight seasons. Putting together the tweetcap was very bittersweet. Collecting tweets about the end of the season is not something I really wanted...

NCAA Tournament Preview: 8) Cincinnati Bearcats vs 9) Purdue Boilermakers

For the 29th time, the Cincinnati Bearcats will tip off action in an NCAA tournament game. The Bearcats are an 8 seed for the third time in the history of the program. Cincinnati takes on Purdue, a team they have only played three times in the illustrious history of both programs. Cincinnati won both prior meetings, but each were in November. The Bearcats have been to all 6 of their...

AAC Tournament Preview 3) Cincinnati Bearcats vs 6) Connecticut Huskies

15.4% of Cincinnati’s AAC games will have been against Connecticut when action kicks off tonight in the AAC tournament. The Cats and Huskies are meeting for the 6th time in UC’s 39 conference games. It’s like it’s some kind of fate to play UConn three times a year. This is the third time the schools have met in the postseason since the 2011 season. One meeting was in the...

Cincinnati Bearcats 77 Memphis Tigers 65

The Memphis Tigers should be Cincinnati’s opponent every senior day. Not just because the Bearcats have waxed Memphis each of the last two seasons. Not just because Cincinnati wearing the red uniforms and Memphis the blue looks really sweet in action. Mainly because there is something a little comforting about seeing Cincinnati’s oldest conference rival step on the floor for...

Bearcats Senior Day this weekend seeing get-in price of just $9

Cincinnati seems to be on the right side of the bubble after picking up a key road win on Wednesday night. The Bearcats (21-9, 12-5) went into then-conference-leading Tulsa and secured a nine-point victory, a game in which they were ahead virtually the entire time. Farad Cobb scored 22 points, including four 3-pointers and Octavius Ellis had 13 rebounds and four blocks. Tulsa is...

Cincinnati Bearcats 56 Tulsa Golden Hurricane 47

The sun is shining a bit brighter, the birds are singing a bit louder, the grass would be a bit greener if it wasn’t covered by snow. All of this is because the Cincinnati Bearcats went to Tulsa and picked up a giant, giant victory over the Golden Hurricane. This win should be enough to stick the Bearcats in the NCAA tournament, assuming the Bearcats pick up the wins they should...

Cincinnati Bearcats 63 Tulane Green Wave 47

The Bearcats picking up the split in the return game over the Tulane Green Wave isn’t exactly impressive on the surface. Beating Tulane is hardly impressive no matter the time. What was impressive was the performance from the Cincinnati Bearcats. One of the pressures as a team squarely on the NCAA tournament bubble is passing the eye test. While the Bearcats haven’t defeated...

Cincinnati Bearcats 83 UCF Knights 60

Winning by 23 points this late in the season when you are a team on the NCAA tournament bubble is always a breath of fresh air. After the previous seven games were filled with anguish and grind it out wins over teams that aren’t that great, Cincinnati punished the worst defense in the league exactly like they deserved to be punished. The Bearcats ripped straight through the Knights...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs UCF Knights – Round Two Preview

There are a couple of ways to look at tonight’s game that sees our Cincinnati Bearcats host the Central Florida Knights. The first is that this should become win number 19 on the season, which is not a bad accomplishment. It’s the game Cincinnati is the most heavily favored the rest of the way on Ken Pom. The predictor has UC with a 93% chance at victory. This is the penultimate...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Houston Cougars Take Two Preview

The Bearcats return a trip to Houston tomorrow night to take on the tough luck Cougars. Houston sits at 9-16 and on a 4 game losing streak, but the last two losses have been by 2 points each. The Cougars also dropped a toughly contested home game against SMU by 6. This team is a league minnow, no doubt about it. They are the type of minnow that can put a scare into someone. They...

Tulane Green Wave 50 Cincinnati Bearcats 49

Well, it happened. The thing that the Bearcats really needed to avoid to feel safe heading down the stretch happened. The ‘it’ being another bad loss to a team from the AAC. This loss throws things into disarray. While the Bearcats do seem like they are safe if the season ended today, the season doesn’t end today. There are games left to win, thankfully. There are also games...

Temple Owls 75 Cincinnati Bearcats 59

Well, that sucked. It had been a while since the Bearcats walked into an ass kicking like the one they got from the Temple Owls last night. The Memphis game seems comparable, minus the part Cincinnati had that at a 1 point game before failing to score for years. The VCU game is almost as comparable, but that was much more of a blowout. Considering that game was marred by the Mick...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Temple Owls Preview

Game of the year (of the week) for the Bearcats has them in Philadelphia for the rematch against the Temple Owls. No one in the AAC has been hotter than Temple since the January 17 ass kicking in Cincinnati. The Owls have smothered everyone on their schedule during their 5 game winning streak. The most dramatic of those being a huge comeback against Memphis on Saturday afternoon...
