Cincinnati Basketball: Daniel Skillings Jr celebrates birthday with 21-point game
Cincinnati failed to find success for a majority of the night but finished the game on a dominant 24-9 run to pick up a much-needed Big 12 win.
It appeared the Bearcats were going to suffer a third straight loss before storming back to take down UCF and improve to 14-6 this season.
Skillings discussed his mindset in recent weeks and how that has led to his increased production in the press conference per Cincinnati Athletics.
“I wasn't trying to force anything. I’m learning my game more and just try to let everything happen, come to me and not force some things."
