    The Big East has been brutal to Notre Dame. They're now getting to the point that their NCAA tourney hopes are fading fast, and this game isn't going to help them out at all either.

    Nevertheless, this will still be a huge win for UC if the 'cats can pull it out though. With West Virginia already losing tonight at Syracuse, UC would move up to 8th in the Big East with a win. We need Providence to start dropping some Big East games too (Nova is helping with that tonight too).

    Agreed, absolutely massive game for UC.

    This was a must-win game for ND.

    Re: UC Basketball

    And this one is over! UC beats Notre Dame 93-83!

    UC is now 5-5 in the Big East with their next game this Saturday at Georgetown. With the way the Hoyas are playing, this is a big road game I'd like to steal.

    @ Pittsburgh
    vs. Louisville
    vs. West Virginia
    @ Syracuse

    Time to update this schedule. One win down, five more to go:

    L @ Villanova
    W vs. Notre Dame
    @ Georgetown
    vs. St. John's
    @ Pittsburgh
    vs. Louisville
    vs. West Virginia
    @ Syracuse
    @ South Florida
    vs. Seton Hall

    We need to win the three games against some of the lower tier Big East competition (St. John's & Seton Hall at home, South Florida on the road) and steal two wins amongst the Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Louisville, West Virginia and Syracuse group. The road games at Pittsburgh and at Syracuse are going to be extremely difficult, which means the road game this Saturday against Georgetown is huge since I believe it's the key road win we can still grab.

    It's amazing how bad Notre Dame has played since the Louisville loss. They were extremely tough to beat in that game but now they can't seem to get anything done.

    Granted, the first 5 in ND's losing streak were top 10 teams.

    Yeah, people seem to be talking down ND, but 5 straight games against top 10 teams can make a lot of people look bad and send them into a slump. No way do I think ND is a #7 quality team like they were ranked early, but they aren't a bad team either.

    Re: UC Basketball

    UC's RPI had a slight boost from a 59 RPI to a 56 RPI after last night's victory over Notre Dame. More importantly, however, is moving to .500 in the Big East with that win. Here's some bubble conversation ...

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/bubblewatch?id=84

    Cincinnati [14-8 (5-5), RPI: 56, SOS: 22] The Bearcats still have some hefty work to do, but they moved a step closer by beating Notre Dame 93-83 on Wednesday night. They moved to .500 in Big East play with their fifth victory in their past seven games and probably knocked the Fighting Irish out of contention for an at-large bid. Cincinnati has a couple of so-so nonconference victories (UAB and UNLV) and beat Georgetown at home. But the Bearcats probably need to finish better than .500 in Big East play to garner serious consideration.

    The nice thing about playing in the Big East is UC will have plenty of opportunities for big wins to impress the committee

    I see us going 4-4 from here on out with wins against St. John's, West Va, South Florida, and Seton Hall. Steal one more, most likely tomorrow against Georgetown and I think we make the tournament with a final record of 20-11 and 10-8. Finish how I think we will and we will be 19-12 and 9-9. Will that be good enough for the big dance? I think it depends on what happens in the Big East tournament.

    UC needs to do something they aren't expected to do. If they can rise up and beat Louisville that would be huge but they also have to hold serve. If UC wins 4 to finish the season they will need to win probably 2 games in the Big East tourney.
