UC easily beat Tennessee-Martin 80-57 this afternoon before 5,728 fans at Fifth Third Arena, in the season opener for the No. 24-ranked Bearcats. The final margin was somewhat misleading, as UC probably could have named the score. UC rushed to a 33-6 lead in the first half and led by as much as 36 points in the second half. Coach Mick Cronin used his bench extensively.
