Re: UC Basketball
A win is a win so I'll take it. I'd liked to have been 3-2 in Big East play after five games, but 2-3 isn't downright terrible.
The next two games at Providence and at St. John's are big though, because UC really needs to win those to prevent a Big East catastrophe. That's because the ugly stretch begins January 28th against Georgetown, and the schedule doesn't get much better than that beyond the 28th. Starting with Georgetown on the 28th, seven of the next nine games are against ranked opponents with one of the two unranked opponents being West Virginia (who is barely unranked and may be ranked again by that time). It'd be really nice if UC could be 4-3 heading into that stretch rather than 3-4 or 2-5.
