    Jermaine Lawrence just verbally committed to UC.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I read that as Jennifer Lawrence at first and was very confused.

    Jermaine Lawrence is supposedly a big-time player. Jennifer Lawrence makes the team without basketball skills.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Both put fans in the seats.

    We may come back and win, but regardless, I have a hard time not wandering off to different channels watching these guys. No rhythm, nothing easy, no flow to the game...just defense. It's absolutely mind numbing to watch.

    Providence at home. Pathetic.

    They lost to Providence on the road, but it is still a loss you really can't let happen. UC really acted like they expected to win that game easily. It was not only the offense, it seemed to be the overall effort of the team. The defense wasn't horrible, but they were not nearly as active as they have been. Offense has been a challenge for a while now, but they were playing at a new level of bad. Very little off the ball movement and very poor ball security. Shots weren't falling, but most of that comes from bad shot selection. They left way too many points on the floor from the line. Not much good to say really. Providence deserves credit as well, but they are a team UC should have beaten. Mick cannot be happy with his team right now.

    Much better effort tonight. Cash also seems to be getting a little better from his injured knee. When we play defense like that we don't need pretty offense to win. My only worry is that the Big East lets you get away with so much contact...doubt we can guard that hard in the tournament.

    Once again there seems to be a lid on the Bearcats' basket. 10 minutes played; nine points scored.
    Wright 0-5
    Kilpatrick 1-4
    21% from the floor
    37% from the 'charity' stripe
    0% from distance.

    The good news is the Bearcats just might get to 50 points. The bad news is the Hoyas will probably get to around 65. 47-38 midway through the second half.

    Re: '12-'13 UC Basketball

    We don't really have anyone other than SK that can get their own shot, and every team just loads up defense on him. We aren't particularly good at screening, passing or running offense either. If those 3s don't fall it looks bad. The last 5 minutes of that game were close, and with the game on the line we took long contested 3s on pretty much every possession. You can't beat a good defensive team that way.

    They're frustrating but they still play hard. I dunno, maybe we just need better players.

    Re: '12-'13 UC Basketball

    Teams have figured out UC has no low post or inside game so they load up on the 3 point line. Not to mention UC's depth was supposed to allow a running game and I haven't seen that. They have several guys that log a lot of minutes and then you look at the box score and say "what did you do out there?". Plus, besides SK, they really can't shoot worth a crap.

    They do play hard and they do play defense though. Ugly games ensue.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    UC down 3 at UConn. They seem to be in every game. They need to pull this one out.

    12 minutes have gone by in the second half and the Bearcats have outscored the Huskies 9-8. UC basketball is ugly. 45-43 UConn with 8 minutes left.
