The Enquirer/Joseph Fuqua II The Cincinnati Bearcats got their first win over a game Connecticut Huskies squad in controversial fashion Wednesday night.

Lance Stephenson is the man

The Enquirer/Joseph Fuqua II Lance Stephenson hit 2 free throws with .7 left to beat UConn for the first time in Cincinnati history. It wasn’t pretty, but it sure was exciting. More tomorrow

Know Your Opponent: Connecticut Huskies edition

The Bearcats and Huskies kick off their Big East seasons with a match up at 7 in 5/3 Arena. The Huskies beat the Bearcats last year 81-72. The Bearcats played tough last year, but couldn’t quite get over the hump thanks to AJ Price. No more Thabeet, Adrien, or Price, but the Huskies still trot out Kemba […]

Top UC basketball players of the decade 3-1

We are quickly winding down this year and also quickly winding down the countdown of the top UC ballers of the decade. With the Bearcats kicking off Big East action Wednesday against UConn, look for a preview Wednesday. There will be a write up probably Thursday morning or Wednesday night. It depends because I may […]

Top UC basketball players of the decade 6-4

In case you missed the first 2 entries to the countdown of the top UC hoopsters of the decade, here are 12-10, and here are 9-7. As we stroll down memory lane, it’s hard to not get excited about this years team. This is the first UC team in at least 5 years that has […]

Top UC basketball players of the decade 9-7

In the previous post, I started a countdown of the top UC basketball players of the decade. It continues today with players 9-7. It bums me out a whole lot looking back through stats and pictures of the way things were in the mid-00s and the 90s. This program didn’t have to fall like it […]

Urban Meyer stepping down at Florida

NOTE: Urban Meyer is not leaving Florida. He’s taking a leave of absence. But, still coaching the Sugar Bowl. And may still coach next season. It’s an odd situation to say the least. (12.27) (AJC.COM) In news that rocked the college football landscape, Urban Meyer will coach his last game at Florida January 1 against […]

Top UC basketball players of the decade 12-10

I decided to break this list into groups of 3. Why? I don’t know, 3 just seemed like a good number. The point is to honor all of the best Bearcats of the decade. And when that is in doubt, I’ll go with my favorites. I was going with my favorites anyway, but saying I’m […]

UC Game of the Decade

Cincinnati 74 Winthrop 57

(AP/Tom Uhlman) The Cincinnati Bearcats improved to 8-3 by besting the Winthrop Eagles by the score posted in the title. It was a tale of 2 halves for the Cats, as they dominated the first, and struggled in the second. Scoring is going to be a problem with this team all season. A second half […]

Know Your Opponent: Winthrop Eagles edition (plus Lipscomb thoughts)

Before we get into the the game tonight, let’s look back to Saturday real fast. After an slow start the first 6 minutes, the Bearcats got into an offensive rhythm and put it on the Bisons 80-52. The maligned UC offense shot 54%, and made 10 3s. They shot 36, which is still too many. […]

Big(gie) win for UC

(ap/Tony Tribble) Big win for the Bearcats, as they dispatched the Lipscomb Bisons 80-52. Biggie McClain offers visual proof that the Cats rejected Lipscomb’s bid for a win.

Know Your Opponent: Lipscomb Bisons edition

After a bad, bad taste was left in everyone’s mouth after the pathetic effort against UAB, the Bearcats look to bounce back tomorrow against Lipscomb. I would be shocked if the Bearcats won this one by less than 20. In fact, Ohio State and Vanderbilt beat Lipscomb by 20 and 22 respectively. We shouldn’t sleep […]

UAB 64 Cincinnati 47

(ap Butch Dill) The Cincinnati Bearcats were dominated by the UAB Blazers all night Wednesday. From the minute the teams stepped on the floor, one team was interested, the other was not. Unfortunately, it was Mick Cronin’s team that was uninterested. The team seemed to be deflated right off the bat when Lance Stephenson injured his […]
