From the Bearcats twitter page, May 1st. Crazy to see it finally happening.

Wonder where it will rank as far as best arenas in the country. Would have to think the Chum Center is still the bes

It will be the top facility in Ohio no doubt.

I'm also looking forward to going to games at NKU. Great facility that gets overlooked

Also seems like the women's team backed down and will play at St. Ursula after all. Laughed my arse off when they said they deserved to play at NKU

I haven't been this excited for a Bearcats team in quite a few years. The offensive talent they have is looking like the best ever for the Cronin era. I'm just curious if Mick lets them get out and run. The playing styles of Broome, Cumberland, Evans, and Clark would all benefit

PG: Broome
SG: Cumberland
SF: Evans
PF: Clark
C: Washington

He let them "get out and run" last year IMO.

I agree with that. More than any other Mick team has. I think Mick made an exception going with that style since Caupain still had an extremely low turnover ratio. Broome will almost certainly turn the ball over at a higher rate. So my post was more asking if Cronin will be okay with the risk/reward with Broome running the show

Looks pretty reasonable to me. I think Temple is underrated however. Really like their roster. Very balanced with playmakers at every position group.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. If it were to go through it'll mean one of three things: 1) The Crosstown Shootout in cancelled and UC-XU only play once every three years; 2) UC-XU still play every year while OSU plays (I assume) UD every year; 3) UC-XU still play every year and while playing every third year in the Crossroads Classic. #3 seems least likely to me.

Don't Indiana-Purdue avoid each other due to Conference games? Why couldn't UC get Dayton or Ohio State in a given year, avoid the matchup against XU? Would Dayton really be that peeved that they don't get Ohio State in an event like that? If this is Holtman's idea and he plans on being at OSU awhile, he can always schedule a home/home with Dayton to appease them. Wouldn't even have to be every year, just rotate it. The obvious place to play these games would UD also, though I'm sure each city would want a rotation between Cincy, Dayton and Cbus.

+1. Should work out fine

You'd think Dayton would be happy with any of those scenarios to bolster their OOC schedule every year

Yeah, UC and X just donít play each other in this event.

Savannah St making life difficult for UC, up 20 at the half, up 7 with 11 minutes to go. Missing the normal Bearcat defense.
Broome can score, Williams too; but defense? uh oh

Decent crowd for a friday noon game. Northern Ky has a great arena

At the half the Bearcats were shooting 10-22 from 3, but they finished 13-39 (3-17 in the 2nd half).

After SSU cut it to 7, it went right back up to 22 (86-64) over about 5 minutes in the middle of the 2nd half. If they can score quickly like they did there, then you can live with some defensive lapses. Against the best teams on their schedule (UCLA, UF, XU, Wichita St) the defense will need to be better, but they can score (might be Mick's best scoring team) and they have decent depth.

UC was getting crushed by the zone for the first eight or so minutes of the first half. My God that was ugly. If any of UC's opponents can play a decent zone, UC will still struggle to score.

I was there today, the arena is obviously great but parking was a bit of a nightmare. Took forever just to get into NKU from 471, then the main lot next to the arena was full and we had to park about a half mile away. My 87 year old grandpa was not happy about that. I imagine this will get much better as that's the only weekday game of the year I think, and most of the commuters will be gone in the evening for the rest of the games. But if you plan on going allow for at least an extra 20 minutes to park. Still, this place is a million times better than US Bank.

They only allowed 0.84 points per possession. They won't play another team that plays at that pace for the rest of the season.

Things I liked yesterday..

-Evans aggressively looking to score

-Broome's hot shooting to close the 1st half

-Jennifer taking care of the ball and his athletic finishes at the rim

-Williams getting to the rim, what an athlete

-Nsoseme's nose for the ball

-Moore finding his shot again after a rough Embry Riddle game.

-Clark taking lead in the 2nd half after a rough 1st half

They couldn't shoot: 44 3's,vast majority wide open, 29%
The interior defense was fine, helped by their lack of size.

Much better game tonight as UC wins 102-51. Broome and Cumberland were awesome.

UC cooled off a lot and only scored 55 in the half. If they can score 100 tonight it'd be the first time in school history they've scored 100 in three straight games.
