Cats Get Unlucky Bounce out of AAC Tournament

Photo from Mark Humphrey / AP Photo via ESPN Sean Kilpatrick's game tying layup came off the left side of the block. The ball went off the backboard, bounced on the right side of the rim once. It bounced twice. It bounced three times. Then it fell to the right, gently bouncing off the bottom of the backboard. Jermaine Sanders couldn't tip the ball back in. Connecticut...

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...

AAC Tournament Preview: #1 Cincinnati vs #9 UCF

The Cincinnati Bearcats play their first AAC tournament game ever today. They are the #1 seed in the tournament. Cincinnati takes on a team they swept in the regular season rather easily, the UCF Knights. The Knights won a double overtime game against Temple last night. This is a nice toe dipping opponent to start tournament play. UCF wasn't even close to Cincinnati in either...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Houston Cougars Preview

Tomorrow is a business game for the Bearcats. At home against a league minnow, you take care of business. It sounds like we could have damn near a sellout on our hands tomorrow. That's pretty awesome. This isn't the type of game that one necessarily looks forward to, but it's the type of game where one is anxious to see where the team stands. How will they respond after...

A Look at Bench Efficiency

You might not have noticed, but Cincinnati has had a little bit of trouble scoring lately. UC has averaged 56 points over the last 3 games. It's kind of surprising that they are 2-1 over that span. A large reason why is that the Bearcats have gotten no bench production. Some of this comes with the tightened rotation. Some comes because guys are missing shots Let's look at...

When you make a list of the teams that are looking dangerous in March, UC is on it. It's fitting yesterday was Thursday because last night's performance, atmosphere and feeling harkened back to the good ol'...

Bearcats trying to match best home start ever

Cincinnati needed some grit and high-scoring performances from Sean Kilpatrick to extend its lengthy win streak in back-to-back road games. Keeping that run going at home hasn't been as tough lately. The 13th-ranked Bearcats will try for another lopsided victory at Fifth Third Arena on Sunday and match their best start there when they face South Florida, the lowest-scoring team...

Cincinnati Bearcats at Louisville Cardinals Preview

For the final time as conference mates, Cincinnati makes the short trip to the Yum Center to take on the defending national champion Louisville Cardinals. The big news for the Cats is that Justin Jackson is a go and will play tonight. That's a big help for the Bearcats, especially after they didn't look so great against Temple defensively. Louisville also gets a boost with...

Cincinnati 80 Temple 76, With Justin Jackson Injury Update

It started in the first game of the season against North Carolina Central. Cincinnati couldn't quite put them away in what would be a 13 point victory. It's a theme that has continued as the season has progressed into conference play. Cincinnati has played 3 of the worst teams of the league on the road. They blew a large lead to Houston, let USF hang around and blew another...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Temple Owls Preview

Since we've last seen the Temple Owls, Temple has yet to win a game. They lost to LaSalle and were crushed by Connecticut. This is a game that Cincinnati should win comfortably on Sunday afternoon. Temple is bad. Winning on the road, even against bad teams, is very hard to do. We saw this last weekend when UC had to fight out a win at USF, who was then murder killed at home....

What a Knight for the Cats

Cincinnati used a huge 16-5 surge to open the second half to put down the Central Florida Knights 69-51. It's win 11 in a row for the Cats. They are 18-2, 7-0 in the American. They were simply in a different class than the Knights on this night. As they should be because good teams put away bad teams like this at home. The Knights haven't come within 10 in any of their conference...

Bearcats look to extend 10-game winning streak

One of the top defensive teams in the nation, Cincinnati has been locking down opponents during a 10-game winning streak.

Cincinnati 61 South Florida 54

Cincinnati has scored 61 points in each of their last two road games. There is a feeling that this Bearcats team is playing down to their competition a bit. I think of some of this is the style of play that Cincinnati and Mick Cronin like. Mick has never been one to push the tempo. That was certainly the case against USF, a game that featured 63 possessions. 63 possessions isn'...

Cincinnati 69 Temple 58

There is something about this Cincinnati team that I can't quite put my finger on. The Bearcats are good, the 16-2 record shows that, but they are missing something. They are missing that dynamic part where you watch them and think "Oh, this team is going to be great." Not every team has it obviously. Watching them go for long stretches against Temple when they were...

Cincinnati vs Temple Preview

For the first time this season, Cincinnati takes the floor as a ranked team as they host the Temple Owls. This is a good opponent for a 'coronation' game because Temple is depleted as it gets. They were down to 7 healthy players when they played Memphis. Temple has lost their last 4 games by an average of 6 points, the largest margin being 10 against Memphis on Saturday....
