Back against the wall

I’d agree that UC plays better when they are backed into a corner but the Bearcats don’t have any room for error in the next couple of weeks. Going 4 – 2 over the next six games gives UC an 11 – 7 Big East record going into MSG. They’ll certainly be ‘Dancing’ with those numbers but if they go 3 – 3 over that same span, Cincinnati will need to do some damage in the Big East tournament.

Bearcats Turnover Margin Has Turned Negative: Can It Be Fixed?
