Re: 2010/2011 UC Basketball official thread
As an aside, I've been really impressed by the minutes that the Bearcats have gotten from Kilpatrick and Justin Jackson this season.
While it's not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison, SK has provided the kind of production that I was hoping the Cats would get from Lance Stephenson last season. After watching Lance last season and SK this season, I'd swear that SK was the blue chip recruit. He's such a great scorer and as time goes on I think he'll become a much more competent defender. I think he really has the potential to go down as one of the all time great Bearcats.
In regards to this season, I think if UC is able to win one of the final four games and win in the first round of the Big East tournament that they'll pretty much be a lock for the tournament. Their OOC SoS is atrocious but they've got quality wins over Xavier, Louisville and St. Johns and no bad losses, which is more than I can say for some of the current bubble teams. If they could somehow manage to get a win over Georgetown or UConn, I think they'd be a lock regardless to what happens in the BE tournament.
