15 Thoughts from the Harvard Game ☆

It’s been nearly a week since the dream died and the season ended. I haven’t offered up my thoughts about the Harvard game for a couple of reasons, many of them being I was writing about many other college basketball games over the weekend and the site was migrating to the new form. There is no way that I can’t talk about the Harvard loss. There is no real point to recapping...

NCAA Tournament Preview: Pittsburgh Pathers

Lunching on cupcakes is one way to earn a bunch of wins, but it doesn’t guarantee a team will get an invite to the big dance. Pittsburgh nearly learned that the hard way. The Panthers suffered only one preseason defeat, mid-December, falling to Cincinnati when Titus Rubles’ put a rebound back in the basket with 4.2 seconds left in the game. Besides the Bearcats, the only other...

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 97 Memphis 84

What a senior night. The past few seasons, 5/3 Arena has been a fortress for senior night. There was the blowout of Georgetown, the beatdown of Marquette, whatever happened last year against USF and the domination from nearly buzzer to buzzer against the Memphis Tigers. The offense is the biggest concern about this team after the Rutgers game tomorrow. We've seen the two best...

Cincinnati delivers on Senior Night with 97-84 win over Memphis

After two straight losses, the last thing Cincinnati' s seniors wanted to do was squander a chance at delivering the program its first conference title in 10 years.

Honoring the Seniors: Titus Rubles

Titus Rubles has the same birthday as my niece. That's the first thing I ever learned about him. I knew in general that he was a basketball player that signed with Cincinnati, but that's not personal information. Titus was the #2 rated JUCO in the country when he signed with Cincinnati form Blinn College. He was expected to come to Cincinnati and contribute right off the...

Cincinnati has lost 2 straight, AAC on the line

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'...

UConn Tops UC in 51-45 Clunker

Well, I don't even know how to start this post game write up. Cincinnati lost to Connecticut 51-45 on a day the Cats had 20 turnovers and 13 field goals. The 3 game gauntlet for the conference title is off to an 0-2 start. UC has lost back to back games for the first time since New Mexico and Xavier, which were also a week apart.

Cincinnati Bearcats vs UCF Knights Preview

The Cincinnati Bearcats head down to Orlando to take on the hapless UCF Knights. It's the matchup that we want to see in football and aren't getting. Instead, we have to settle for the basketball tussle. The term rock fight has been thrown around UC games a lot lately. It's been thrown around every UCF game because they are pretty awful. They are 2-10 with Temple at the...

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...

Cincinnati 69 Louisville 66

Right up front I will admit that I was wrong about this Cincinnati basketball team. I didn't think they had the offense to go to Louisville and pull out this game. How do they respond? By hitting 63% of their field goals in the second half and 14 of 14 of their free throws. There is something about this team, they aren't the same type of team that we've seen from Mick...

UC opens eyes with win at Louisville

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- For 25 minutes Thursday night the KFC Yum! Center was as quiet as 22,644 people can be, minus the expletives being shouted from the University of Louisville student section. They weren't too pleased that their Cardinals were trailing by 17 points and having the game dictated to them by Cincinnati. UC might have come into the game winners of 12 straight and...

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...

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...
