Honestly haven't seen Cincinnati play, do they play the same grind itbout, physical defense like they have in the past?

At least they’ll be a few Xavier and Ohio St. fans that’ll show up just to cheer against Cincinnati

The worst part of it is playing them in Ohio. Entering today they were 35th on KenPom, we were 36th. Now they're 32nd. Their strength of record was 23rd entering today (would be higher now), ours was 27th.

They went 4-4 vs. Q1, 8-1 vs. Q2, 9-0 vs. Q3, 6-1 vs. Q4 (lost to East Carolina).

Without having seen Cincinnati once this year, I knew this wasn’t a good matchup. Oh well.

Cronin ranks lower than Fran in 2 foul participation rate. Hope it's called tight, if any of their guys get 2 in the first half they're done until the 2nd half.

Unless the Hawks are on fire from deep, like in both Illinois games, this is what its ultimately going to come down to.

If the refs call the game like an OOC game, gotta like our chances even up. But if they go by 'B10 rules', Hawks will be in big time trouble.

A couple things I see..

1. Nysier Brooks is in foul trouble a lot so Garza should be able to feast. 17 games he's had 4 fouls or more.
2. They struggled with UCONN both times they've played them, but beat them.

It's very simple. Stop Cumberland and you stop UC.

Time for Joe to become the bell cow.

Yea they’re good at offensive rebounding so it’s a good thing we’re not in zone a lot

Shoot 3s well, good chance...shoot poorly and they lose. That's pretty much the analysis .
