University of Cincinnati Basketball Hitting New Lows
The start of the University of Cincinnati basketball season looked promising. With two five star players in Yancey Gates and Lance Stephson as well as All Big-East senior Deonta Vaughn, UC finally looked to have a team that could contend for a top 5 Big East ranking and their first NCAA tournament appearance since Bob Huggins. The team has the talent to compete, however, their play on the court has been suspect at best. After winning the first two games of Big East play, three straight losses to Pittsburgh, Seton Hall, and now St. Johns have left the team spinning downward fast. A year that once seemed promising now leaves the team at 11-6 and in desperate need of some big wins our in will be one more year in waiting for UC fans.
