Before we go on worrying about a Friday night game against Memphis, let's take a look back at the #1 seed, conference regular season and conference COIN FLIP CHAMPS Cincinnati Bearcats win over Rutgers. The offense for this basketball team had a tremendous week. This is the best development of the season. Cincinnati hung 1.06 points per possession on Rutgers. It was the 16th time UC had hung at least 1.06 points per possession on someone. The great thing is that they have done it 5 times since February. It means that something has clicked for the offense. The offense has jumped from 120s on Ken Pom to 101. The defense has slipped a little bit, but that's not a major concern. The offense has been the problem and the offense is coming around. If there is anything to make you book your stay at a Memphis hotel through Saturday, it's that.
Before we get into how the players played and all of that, here is the conference tournament bracket.
UC is actually the third favorite to win the league title. They were picked 4th before the year. The numbers suggest they are third. Might as well win this too.no comments
