As non-conference play officially comes to an end, the Cincinnati Bearcats are set to take on the Evansville Purple Aces on Friday evening!
Cincinnati should be able to secure a victory but Evansville senior forward Ben Humrichous could present a consistent problem for the defense.
The Bearcats opened up as 17.5-point favorites with the over/under currently projected at 150.5 total points according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Wes Miller's team is hoping to cap off the year with a dominant win over Evansville and remain undefeated at Fifth Third Arena this season.
