With a chance to keep the season alive, the Bearcats take on Temple in the AAC Tournament quarterfinals on Friday in Fort Worth. Tip off is scheduled for 3:00 PM on ESPN2 and fuboTV.

Cincinnati clinched fourth place in the AAC standings with a blowout win over SMU in the regular season finale to finish with a 20-11 record including 11-7 against conference opponents.

Temple was one victory away from earning third place but came up just short in an 83-82 loss at Tulane on Sunday evening, finishing with a 16-15 overall record and 10-8 in conference play.

After losing the first matchup at Temple on New Year’s Day, the Bearcats bounced back with an 88-83 overtime win last month as David DeJulius and Landers Nolley II combined for 40 points.

There are a ton of talented players to watch in the upcoming matchup including Cincinnati pair Mika Adams-Woods and Viktor Lakhin, plus Temple duo Damian Dunn and Nick Jourdain.

Wes Miller’s team will lean on DeJulius and Nolley to create most of the offense but it’s going to be important for several others to make a significant impact in order to advance past the Owls.

Even though it would be difficult to take down top seeded Houston in the semifinals, the Bearcats have an opportunity to win three straight games and secure a third AAC Tournament title.
