    I'm the same way. And considering that Xavier is on our non-conference schedule every year, it's a good thing that they are a very good program. Playing quality non-conference opponents is never a bad thing.

    What's taking so long in getting him eligible? I'm going down tonight and I'm looking forward to seeing all these new guys

    The NCAA doesn't do anything fast. They are waiting on "official" word, but I don't really think Mick is sweating it all that much. It's pretty much just an issue of how long it will take now.

    The latest rumor I've heard - and this is strictly a rumor so it may not be worth much more than pulling information out of thin air - is that Lance will get a three game suspension (both exhibition games and the first regular season game).

    Take that rumor for what it's worth, which is probably very little.

    That's what I've been hearing for days.

    The ruling is in.....

    He's eligible and playing tonight!!

    Cincinnati freshman guard Lance Stephenson has been ruled eligible by the NCAA and won’t miss any games, according to sources.

    Cincinnati was informed early Thursday evening and Stephenson will be eligible to play in Thursday’s exhibition against Saginaw Valley State.

    The 6-foot-5 Stephenson was being investigated by the NCAA for amateurism issues presumably related to his involvement in the “Born Ready” Internet series and a film called “Gunnin’ For That No. 1 Spot.”

    The all-time leading scorer in New York State history during his career at Brooklyn Lincoln High School, Stephenson was named the Big East Preseason Rookie of the Year.

    He recently scored 22 points in 25 minutes in a scrimmage, impressing observers.

    “The guy can play offense,” Bearcats coach Mick Cronin told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “He’s got a lot of natural, God-given ability. I think our style of play will help Lance.”

    Stephenson chose Cincinnati in June, a story first reported by SNY.tv.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    For those who perhaps did not know, you can watch the game for free on gobearcats.com. Not the best quality, but I've been impressed with UC so far. Not a great opponent, but still pretty good showing so far.

    Re: UC Basketball

    Lance looked like a freshman at times. He had 9 points in limited action off the bench. 4-14 shooting, that will improve. He is a great passer, he'll be fun to watch. So will this team once they get everything set.

    Fun game, can't wait for the actual season to start. Darnell Wilks was most impressive to me and Cashmere/JaQuon both handled the point well (10ast/2To total).

    Re: UC Basketball

    I only watched the first half, but I've always thought Wilks could become they type of spark plug that James White was. He's an athletic high flyer that can be exciting to watch at times. I'm not sure he will be as good as White, but he can definately give you a spark off the bench.

    Parker's hands are amazingly fast. He can definately cause some problems on defense. I thought it looked like Stephenson was trying a little too hard at times. Looks like he may run into some foul trouble from time to time. Maybe the excitement of the everything was getting to him a little bit. Overall, not a bad performance by the Bearcats. Shake off some of that rust and we might have a pretty exciting team to watch this year.

    Re: UC Basketball

    Lance may be the key to Cronin. Cronin got a seat at the big boys table with Lance, but he has to prove he can coach him. He has to prove that he can coach the one and done player and keep that player happy. On the other hand he has to find out if a one and done player is worth the trouble. Thad Matta is learning that lesson as we speak. Koufos and Mullens were nice players, but they didn't have near the impact a Evan Turner has.

    At least this season UC will be exciting and have the horses to compete in the Big East.
