Re: UC Basketball
I think UC will face a slight problem with the Big East not being as BIG as people thought it would be. At the beginning of the season it was being talked about as the best conference by far in college basketball. They sure have taken their lumps this season. 10 wins is nice in the non conference because they haven't lost to anyone they shouldn't have. But then again they don't have a quality win so far. A win over Memphis will go along way towards fixing that.
What is going to be nice about this season with UC is that they have the inside players to play Big East basketball. If they had a PG I think UC would have a good shot at the NCAA tourney. They don't which hurts them. They need to go through the Big East without losing to the bottom feeder teams. I think its realistic to hope for a NCAA bid but also expect a NIT bid. Mick's biggest job should be getting this team loaded and ready for a strong season next year.
