Kelvin Gaines to Transfer?

Last night, word came through on a North Texas message board, the most reliable source in the world, that Kelvin Gaines was in Denton visiting the school and things had gone well. This seems like a very solid situation for all involved. UC has a scholarship crunch with more players than available scholarships. Kelvin Gaines has already graduated Cincinnati because he was an excellent...

Season Review: Shaquille Thomas

The season reviews have been coming in alphabetical order from Jeremiah Davis, Alex Eppensteiner, Kelvin Gaines, Ge'Lawn Guyn and Justin Jackson, not to mention the state of the program, but today is a little different. When I said on twitter last night that I was going to be writing a recap today, someone named Cody wanted to read about Shaq Thomas. Since this is a blog for...

Season Review: Jeremiah Davis, Alex Eppensteiner, Kelvin Gaines

Earlier this week, I kicked off the season review with a look at the Cincinnati program. Up next are the players themselves. Last will be a review of Mick Cronin. Since stat sheet lists players in alphabetical order, that's a good way to go through the roster. That works out especially well because the 3 men at the top of the roster played a combined 33 games. #0 Jeremiah...

Cincinnati 62 Rutgers 54

Fresh off win number 17, it's clear that the Cincinnati Bearcats have found their mold for Big East play. The style this teams has to play to win is work your ass off on defense and get to the free throw line on offense. Defense is a staple for every team. No ****. This team has to play a much tougher brand of defense because their offense isn't good enough to make up for...

Breaking Down Notre Dame's Offense Vs Cincinnati's Defense

Notre Dame beat Cincinnati 66-60 on Monday night. We saw the Bearcats give up a lot of wide open shots to the Irish. Especially late in the first half when Notre Dame scored 21 points in 6 minutes. Like many of you, this left me very frustrated. Unlike many of you, I'm a giant dork and decided to look at how and why Notre Dame ended up with such good shots. If you aren't...

Bearcats Officially Land 7-1 David Nyarsuk

The University of Cincinnati basketball team has played host to 3 players over 7 feet tall. This season, they will add the biggest and hopefully best. Former West Virginia recruit David Nyarsuk has officially been signed and cleared to play. He didn't have the best of test scores to get into West Virginia.

Mick Cronin Opens Up About the 2012-13 Bearcats

Jon Rothstein is an interesting guy to follow on twitter. Sometimes he gives you analysis like Kyle Kuric is the next Dan Marjele and Sean Kilpatrick is the next Reece Gaines and Brad Redford is the next LeBron James. Might have made one of those up. Other times, Rothstein sits down with coaches and gets them to open the vault. He did that with Mick Cronin last night. I tweeted some...

Cincinnati v Arkansas-Pine Bluff Thoughts

As promised, here are expanded thoughts on the Bearcats 8th win, a 101-53 romp over the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions. If you want to read a recap of the action, look here. I mentioned this in the recap, UC hadn't scored 100+ in back to back games since 1976. The fact that this team, one that was so inept just 3 games ago against Xavier, is the one that is doing it and setting...

Cincinnati 101 Arkansas-Pine Bluff 53

Live blog time. I have nothing better to do 4 days before Christmas other than to do a live blog recap. Teams about to jump. Let's do it to it. Justin Jackson wins his first tip of the season. Dixon with a tough shot, but Jackson rebounds and scores with a foul. Dixon gets the missed free throw. He missed a shot, but Parker got it back and got fouled. Miss. Make. Press by UC...

Breaking Down Every UC Field Goal: Wright State

Since the Cincinnati Bearcats have been an offensive machine the past couple of games, I decided to take a look at how they are doing it. Luckily the past 2 games are on ESPN3. If you hate posts involve 60+ pictures, you are probably goint to kill yourself. Possessions that ended in free throws were not counted. I'll be keeping track of how they scored. Fast break, pick and roll...

Northwestern St.-Cincinnati Preview

Cincinnati made a return to the NCAA tournament last season with a defense-first mentality that produced 26 victories. Coach Mick Cronin is wondering where that identity is as the 20th-ranked Bearcats try to bounce back from a stunning loss Monday night when they host Northwestern State. Cronin, who got off the hot seat by guiding Cincinnati to the NCAA tournament last March, saw...

Cincinnati v McGill Recap by Bucky Cooper

The Bearcats easily thrashed McGill College University 75-41. Due to outside forces, I was not able to see the game live. But my good friend Bucky Cooper was. Just like he did with the summer league, Bucky is a good enough man that he recapped this game. Between you and me, he might recap the next exhibition game as well. After the jump, we will see Buck's words and the box score...
