NCAA Tournament 2011: Missouri Vs. Cinncinnati Live Blog
Hello everyone, my name is Andrew Kessel, budding sportswriter and college basketball enthusiast. I'll be blogging live updates of Mizzou vs. Cincinnati.
This should be an exciting game, as Missouri's "40 Minutes of Hell" style clashes with the physicality on the interior of the Bearcats.
While Mizzou has been to the tournament the last two seasons under Mike Anderson, Cincinnati is making its first appearance since 2005.
However, Mizzou has battled inconsistency issues all season and find themselves underdogs here against big man Yancy Gates and his squad.
This game could really go either way. If Cincy can dominate the interior and Gates can win the matchup with Mizzou's Ratliffe, they could win handily. On the other hand, if Mizzou can force the young guards into turnovers and get Gates into foul trouble, this could end up being a big win for the Tigers.
This one was pretty noneventful, so im going to sign-off. The 3rd ound match up between UConn and Cinncinnati will pit a gifted point gurard in Kemba Walker against a dominant post presence. Two red hot teams collide. Should be an exciting matchup. Thats all for tonight folks.
The Bearcats led by Yancy Gates turned in a dominant performence all night, dominating down low, and Missouri's defensive pressure was mediocre at best. Easy win for Cinncinnati.
