Ugly game for Cats (only 15 points at half, 49 for the game) but a conference road win against a borderline tournament team. They continue to play better in the 2nd halves of games which is a good trend. Just can't dig too deep of a hole in the 1st half.

Dominant performance last night. This team is scary good when they're clicking on multiple fronts. Pretty tough 8-game stretch starting Saturday at Memphis.

@ Memphis
Houston
@ UConn
UCF
@ SMU
@ Houston
Wichita St.

Winning 7 of those 8 would be ideal, though I wouldn't be upset if they won 6.

That's a typical stretch where they end up going 4-4, so I would agree 6-2 or better is great. They've been playing and shooting a lot better at "home" this year, so I think they can come away with home wins over Houston and UCF. The thee-game stretch @ Houston, @ SMU and vs Wichita State is extremely tough. That'll show what type of team these guys can be come March.

Still not totally sure this UC team is for real....the 5 games vs. Houston, Wichita and SMU will tell us....they will smack Memphis, UCONN and UCF. UCF's offense is one of the most pitiful things I've ever seen on a basketball court (other than Temple's the other night).

Not so sure they smack Memphis, UConn or UCF. UC has struggled on the road in the past and even though Memphis and UConn are bad, they're both typical games that UC will struggle but should win ugly. UCF has that 7'6 guy which screws up UC offensively, so I wouldn't be so sure they blow them out either.

Tacko Fall is out for the season....had to get shoulder surgery. The difference he makes is crazy. Wichita put up 81 on them and their season OPPG is 60.

Didn't know that. Then I stand corrected, they should run away from UCF at home.

As expected, ugly win at Memphis. First time in awhile that they played much better in the 1st half than the 2nd. Houston is being talked about as the AAC's third tournament team this year, so Wednesday should be interesting.

Abortion of a 1st half so far. They look lost.

Glad I could help.

That first 10-12 minutes was pathetic. They've been rolling since. Washington stepping up big time.

Damn good win tonight. Defense really tightened up and only allowed 30 points the in the final ~23 minutes of the game. Evans' buzzer beater at halftime was badass, first time I've heard UC fans get that loud all season.

We’re going to miss Washington and Clark. Hoping for a long run in March.

Anything less than a Sweet 16 would be a disappointment, IMO.

Yeah, agree. I always prepare for disappointment when the Bearcats are in the tourney though.

Somewhat of a rough game today. They came out a bit better in the second half. Everyone was pretty mediocre outside of Evans and Washington. Could have put UConn away for good a few times but couldn't quite manage it. Oh well, got the win in Storrs. With Duke and Kasnas losing they should be sitting at #6 next week. UCF at home on Tuesday.

AAC is still a joke. Too many NIT bubble teams and not enough NCAA locks.

Wichita is the only team with enough talent on their roster to upend UC but they're soft

Agree for the most part, but there are teams that are much better this year: Houston, UFC (Before Tako hurt his shoulder) and Tulane

But then teams that have been strong in the past are down: UConn, Memphis, SMU

If UConn, Memphis and SMU swapped out records with Wichita St, Houston and UCF they'd be considered tournament teams.

@ Memphis W 62-48
Houston W 80-70
@ UConn W 65-57
UCF W 77-40
@ SMU
@ Houston
Wichita St.

Winning 7 of those 8 would be ideal, though I wouldn't be upset if they won 6.
So far so good. 2 out of these next 3 would be awesome.

Three straight toughies, if they win out, #1 seed?

They would need some help on top of winning out, IMO.

Yeah it's possible but I think a 2 seed would be more likely. Realistically they'll probably drop at least 2 more games. 3-4 seed is likely, IMO.

If they win out they will be 35-2 and at least top four in Kenpom and BPI and probably top five in RPI. Would be very hard to keep them off the one line. You have to figure Purdue, Nova and Virginia are locks but after that UC's resume would be better than anyone else's. Long way to go to achieve that and it wont likely happen, but if it does I'll bet they are the fourth number one.

They'll need Xavier to get blown out by Nova in the regular season or lose their first game of the BE tourney.

Or just lose another conference game, in addition to losing Nova. That is, unless the committee this season values the conference tournaments at all since they didn't last year.
