    Dayton beats UC 75-66

    First time Dayton has won in Cincy since 1971. Ive been watching UC basketball for a long time, this is the worst defensive Bearcats team Ive seen in 15 years, its horrible. After watching years of Huggins teams do 40 minute clinics of defense and rebounding the new version of UC basketball is painful to watch. We are going to be beaten to pulp by Memphis, and nearly every team in the Big East. A pretty sad display from a once proud program.

    Congrats to Dayton on good win.

    It's going to be a painful season.

    Congrats to Dayton. They have a solid team this year.

    UC is in for a long long season. If the fanbase is apathetic now, just wait until January when they are getting pounded by the other Big East schools.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Did you hear all the boo's when the game was over? I think it's going to get ugly for all parties involved. The Ch 9 interview with Zimpher was the most over hyped piece of useless trash I've seen in awhile. Softball questions and a bunch of spin. Of course Nancy wasn't afraid to whip out the gender card when discussing her critics.

    As a lifelong UD fan, I kept expecting UC to grab the lead and pull away last night. I've seen it happen too many times in my lifetime when UC and UD play each other.

    It seems as though UC cannot hit a shot from further than 12 feet. They did very well at the charity stripe, but could not hit a jumper to save their lives. Unless Hicks got the ball inside, it seemed less than likely that the Bearcats would score.

    UD got blown out last week at Miami. After painfully watching that game, I did not hold my much hope for the Flyers to win at UC. But I guess that is why they play the game.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    UC athletics will lose a lot of money because of the Huggins fisaco.

    Mens basketball attendance is WAY down, and it will drop exponentially once the team begins to lose. Last night, the Bearcats drew 9,199 versus Dayton. Compare that to the 13,176 that were in attendance the last time Dayton visited the Shoemaker Center (sorry, I refuse to call it the 5/3rd center) in 2003. Those numbers will only decrease as the losses begin to pile up.

    The 2006 season will be even worse. Remember, UC waited until AFTER 2005 season tickets were purchased to fire Huggins. Next year, a whole bunch of fans who felt hoodwinked will choose not to renew their tickets on principal alone. Compounding the problem will be the fact that the team will: (a) be coming off a bad year (b) be losing five seniors (c) will have no incoming recruits to fill the roster.

    Fans will stay away in droves in anticipation of a return to the Yates-era.

    BTW, I'd like to make it clear that I don't have a huge problem with Huggins being let go. My problem is with (1) the timing (2) the manner in which it was done (3) the reasons given for the change.

    The university as a whole has lost a lot of money already because of this fiasco. Donations are down across the board this year.

    I'm not a UC fan, but I have to agree with you. They should have let him go earlier and given the new coaching staff more time to get things together. That was very poorly done.

    I hope Nancy Zimpher got a good, hard look at the once upper tier basketball program she has destroyed. The UC team I know, win or lose, doesn't play that poorly.

    Thanks Nancy to a job well done....

    She doesn't care about the basketball program.
