    Good win for the Bearcats; I believe that they clinched after beating Louisville, Providence, and Georgetown, but this has to be an absolute sealer. Congratulations to Cincinnati.

    Check the UC early season threads. I said UC would win no less than 10 BEast games and got laughed at. This team might've played a weak out of conferences schedule but they're definitely good as advertised. 5-4 on the road to finish Beast play. Finish strong at home Sat and I don't see how this team isn't atleast a 5 or 6 seed... Possibly higher if they can win a couple in the conference tourney.

    Yancy Gates With 11 and 11 tonight.

    I can remember back then and agreed; I know that there weren't many thinking that way.

    Yep, NOW we can say the Bearcats are officially back in the tournament. This is the first time since the Bearcats joined the bEAST they get 10 wins in conference.

    Now they are playing with seeding, lose to G-Town and in the 1st round of the bEAST tourney, they likely get a 8 or 9. If they can win a game or two, maybe bump themselves up to a 6 or 7.

    A win over G'town and one in the tournament puts them at 25-7. Thats good enough for a 5 seed, IMO.

    Could you imagine if that happened, we could be talking about UC as a legimate Sweet 16 team. Who could have predicted that when the season started, aside from GT of course.

    BTW, I think the following should be noted, as I believe Dan Hoard said it

    Gates is averaging 9.5 rpg since being benched and serving a suspension.

    People criticize Mick a lot but he sure knew how to get in his star's head.

    Top 20 class next year...if Shaquille Thomas is eligible. Maybe GT can shed some light on that situation? Heard he is no longer with NIA Prep.
