Tough Loss to Temple

Tough Loss to Temple

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Tough loss for the Cincinnati Bearcats. Wes Miller’s Bearcats could not hit a shot down the stretch and fell to the Temple Owls, 61-58. The road loss was the first time Cincinnati fell to Temple since the Obama administration. The loss dropped Cincinnati to 14-6 overall and 4-3 in the American. This was a great opportunity for the Bearcats to assert their place in the upper eschelon in the league. Apparently, it was not meant to be. Instead, they are now mired in the middle of the pack alongside Temple. Hayden Koval’s last...

Wes Miller and the Bearcats are Right on Track

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Cincinnati’s rout last night of Tulsa was the latest piece of evidence that Wes Miller has the Bearcats basketball program back on the right track. The 90-69 beatdown of Tulsa at Fifth Third Arena provided ample evidence that this team not only can take control of a game but can also finish off an opponent. The aspect of the 14-5 (4-2 in the AAC) Cincinnati Bearcats performance last night that impressed the most was their ability to consistently shoot accurately—both inside and outside the perimeter. Cincinnati shot nearly 50 percent from the...
