It's a big day tomorrow for Alabama athletics as our FB team looks to beat down the Dawgs on the way to Miami (I think we win by 20+ points) AND the hoops team get their toughest test so far (and possibly the entire season) in Cincinnati (WKRP).
The Bearcats are undefeated and ranked #17 in AP poll. Only one of their games have been decided by less than double digits.
I haven't watched them this year except for highlights, but from what I gathered they score a lot (86.8 PPG) and don't give up a lot (60.7). Granted that 60.7 is somewhat padded by their destruction of NC A&T.
Players to watch are Sean Kilpatrick (21 PPG) and Cashmere Wright (16.5). Wright is hitting 3s at a 47.5% clip. The numbers they've accumulated so far kinda scares me. They have 3 big guys over 6'9" but none of them play more than 10 MPG. The Bearcats are sloppy with the ball (15 turnovers a game) so I suspect we will press them quite a bit.
- 47.5 FG
- 40.3% 3pt FG
- +13.4 rebound margin
- 95 offensive boards
Tip off is 3PM EST (2PM CST). Obviously this is 1hr before the SECCG so I expect all of you not attending to be tuned into ESPN2 for the 1st half. Me... I'll be split screening the 2nd half.
