    Bearcats topple UCF 69-51 to run their record to 18-2. Justin Jackson with 6 blocked shots. Kilpatrick with 19 points.

    Gary Clark, 6'7" signee is putting up some ridiculous numbers in high school. including a quadruple double: http://cincyontheprowl.com/2014/01/2...chool-circuit/

    Defensively we are about as good as you'll find in college hoops.

    I just happened to be in the car to hear Cronin's post game.

    It's the same ankle that's given him trouble in the past, which didn't sound good. But he also said Jackson wanted to come back after halftime, which did sound good.

    Basically, he didn't give any info one way or the other.
    When all is said and done more is said than done.

    He was definitely hobbling around in the layup line at the half. My guess is that he will be out there Thursday, I just hope he's effective and it doesn't set him back. Jackson is the guy we can least afford to lose, especially with Lawrence out.

    How is the Bearcats shooting this season? That has seemed to be their downfall in previous years... haven't got a chance to watch them yet.

    After the Bearcats got thumped by New Mexico and Xavier, back-to-back, to fall to 7-2, did anyone think they would be sitting at 19-2? It has been a suprising and enjoyable season so far for me. Go Bearcats!

    Cronin said on his radio show that he is probably a week away from being back. Not sure if that means back to activity or back to games, but Cronin is known for not pushing it with his guys. He typically will give them extra rest unless the player and doctor both show Cronin that they are ok and aren't going to hurt themselves worse.

    Apparently Jackson was screaming and yelling at halftime of the last game that he was fine and wanted back in but Cronin sat him. It wouldn't surprise me if Jackson plays Thursday though, apparently this is an ankle sprain that they have been dealing with for a long time on and off.

    Not bad really. Kilpatrick is their gunner. He went through a horrible stretch for about 3-4 games but has bounced back in a big way the last 3-4 games. Definitely a little streaky but right now he's shooting pretty confidently.

    They also have a couple freshmen who have been knocking down the open looks, and a 6'4" junior that can knock it down when open.

    They aren't going to kill anyone with the three ball, but for the most part their shooting is ok. Defense is what wins games for this squad.

    The update from Cronin yesterday said that Lawrence has started jogging and will be back in two weeks.

    I've always liked Cronin. He comes across as a real straight shooter sort of guy/coach.

    17-7 UC at the under 8 minute timout. Nice start, but they should have a bigger lead. Could come back to haunt them on the road.

    Typical ul/uc game. Love that we have a lead without kilpatrick doing much.
