We made it. 2:30pm…CBS…Nantz on the call again
What a dream come true…would hope the team win just to hear Nantz go crazy!
He’s got to try to stay impartial, hehehe.
The Bearcats have not shot the ball particularly well from the perimeter in either game they have played in Orlando, and they also have had lapses with their energy and focus in both games. Still, Cronin believes the championship game will be much different because the stakes will be so high.
Neither team has won the American tournament previously.
Cincy side of things:
Few teams matchup as evenly with the Bearcats as Houston does. Devin Davis is a formidable interior presence who scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Cougars win over Cincinnati.
Gray can go toe-to-toe with any player in the country, and with Jacob Evans in a scoring slump, the Bearcats will need to see another impressive defensive effort to help blunt his impact.
On paper, the major advantage for Cincinnati should be depth. Houston’s talent is top heavy with a solid starting five, and relatively weak bench. Armoni Brooks is capable of scoring in bunches off the bench, but they lack much talent past him.
that guy clearly dont know what he is talking about. we have depth even if van beck isnt playing.
just hoping for a close game.
a win for cincy probably makes them a 2, a loss makes them a 3 and the loss to the coogs in the season probably took them off the one line. I imagine they want some payback.
They said “much depth.” As in quantity. After White, I wouldn’t consider Zanna, Grant and Harris threats to light up the score board.
I’m pulling out my 2010 conference championship shirt today for good luck.
