Glass Leads Bearcats in loss to No. 12 Houston

Hurd Wins Jump at Historic Drake Relays

With just one other jumper remaining at 6’ 0.5”, Hurd made the most of her opportunity and cleared the staggering height on her first attempt. It took Dior Delophont from Kent State two jumps, which made UC’s sophomore the eventual Drake Relays Champion after each missed the following height. The clearance was the best of Hurd’s career, and it places her second in Cincinnati’s records book just a quarter of an inch behind Renee Hein (6’ 0.75”, 2007).

Justin Jackson Season In Review

He committed to becoming an effective post player. Jackson developed a series of post moves that individually weren’t overpowering, but in combination made him incredibly effective. That is an aspect of his game that wasn’t on display before his senior season. Prior to this season every JJ post up was an adventure. Something was going to happen, but it was never clear from possession to possession if what happened was going to be good for the Bearcats or for the opposition. In 2013-14 good things always happened when the Bearcats got the ball to Jackson in the post. Just look at his shooting by area for this year.

Tulane sees financial benefits from UConn’s title run

Every time national champion Connecticut pulled another upset on its way to the Final Four this year, the Green Wave’s cash registers went ka-ching. The way the system works, Tulane might receive more money from the AAC’s March Madness performance in 2014 than it would have gained from Conference USA’s past six NCAA tournaments combined if it had stayed in that league.

Ryan Boatright returning to UConn for senior season

Boatright averaged 12.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists last season for the national champion Huskies. He and senior Shabazz Napier blended into a powerful, dynamic tandem that gave the Huskies a memorable, unprecedented run, becoming the first No. 7 seed to win it all.

Cincinnati Reds Rally Comes Up Just Short

What jumps off the page is Bailey’s either lack of confidence, or lack of willingness to throw his fastball.  When he’s at his best, Bailey’s fastball sits at 94-96 MPH, and he can work off the change in speed that creates.
