Revisiting Preseason Predictions for Cincinnati Bearcats Basketball

Revisiting Preseason Predictions for Cincinnati Bearcats Basketball

Now that the NBA Draft is over, its time to look back at the year that was in Cincinnati Bearcats basketball and the predictions we made back in November. Predictions are a lot of fun, but at some point, the piper must be paid. Nailing predictions before a season begins is difficult, but what’s life without a little challenge? With that in mind, I am here to look back at the preseason predictions I made about the 2017-18 Cincinnati Bearcats men’s basketball team and see where I was clairvoyant and where I was simply dumb. Let’s do it. 1. Jacob Evans will average at least 15 points...

Gary Clark Deserves a Shot in the NBA

Gary Clark Deserves a Shot in the NBA

He may not be projected to be drafted tonight, but he should be. Evaluating NBA Draft prospects is difficult. Sometimes players who were dominant in college don’t translate to the next level or at least player evaluators don’t expect that they will. That’s why you can find yourself in a situation where the player of the year in one conference is considered a fringe prospect while other guys in the league are more or less guaranteed a shot. Unfortunately, that’s the case with Gary Clark. Clark had a majestic career at UC and he capped it off with an American Athletic Conference...

The Definitive Jacob Evans NBA Draft Profile

Everything you need to know about what Evans will bring to an NBA team near you.

Star swingman Jacob Evans opted to forgo his senior season at UC in order to chase the NBA dream. Its a dream he should soon realize as he is pegged to be taken in the first round, which is a major reason he ultimately stuck to his...

Opponent Preview: UCLA Bruins

The football season begins on Sept. 1 in Pasadena for the Bearcats. Facing them will be a Bruins team that has undergone seismic shifts on the coaching stafff and on the roster. Few teams have changed as drastically as the UCLA Bruins during the last year. There was the firing of Jim Mora, the hiring of Chip Kelly and then then the NFL Draft process for Josh Rosen and a number of other talented contributors. Only Kelly is going to have any tangible impact on the program this season. Before coming to UCLA, the former head coach at Oregon made the leap to the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles...

Cincinnati Bearcats and the First Round of the NBA Draft

Of the 56 players in program history to be drafted, there have been 10 selected in the first round. Even though his NBA Draft stock has fluctuated to a degree over the last few months, Jacob Evans appears poised to be selected in the first round of the NBA Draft on Thursday. While he isn’t going to be taken in the top five or challenge for the top 10, Evans is, by all accounts, a sure thing to be taken in the later part of the first round. When he is drafted, he’ll join an elite fraternity of Cincinnati Bearcats to be taken in the draft. There are currently 56 members of that...
