UC is 18-13 currently and are in the Big East which is the hardest conference. They have some talent but are extremely inconsistent. They have big wins against Georgetown and West Virginia but all the other big games they’ve lost.
They came close against Xavier but close doesn’t cut it in college basketball.
The close game at Xavier and the win against West Virginia had something to fuel them. Xavier being their cross town rivals, and former head coach Bob Huggins with West Virginia.
They need to find something that fuels them constantly not just for one game.
Deonta Vaughn their best player and is probably the best thing about this team. He’s averaging a little over 15 points a game, and he’s become more of a team player this season.
If UC has any chance at being a good team next year it’s going to center around this guy.
Another major problem with UC is their head coach Mick Cronin. When you think of UC you can look at what Coach Huggins did here and it was recruit big names. People would come from all over to play for UC just because of him.
Now Xavier is getting the major players around Cincinnati, and winning more games to.
