After escaping with a narrow win against SMU in mid January, the Bearcats came into the game as 12-point favorites with the over/under set at 146.5 total points according to WynnBET.

Cincinnati should be able to secure a relatively comfortable win but it will be important to avoid turnovers and scoring lapses as the Mustangs look to make a comeback in the second half.

With less than a week until postseason play, Wes Miller’s team is looking to send the seniors off with a memorable win at home and take some momentum into the AAC Tournament.
