The Bearcats will make their shortest road trip of the season tonight as they make the less than 10-mile journey from Clifton to Highland Heights, KY to face NKU (1-1) for the second time in program history as Division 1 opponents.

The Norse are coming off a 20-win 21/22 season with 4th-year head coach Darren Horn and return 4 starters - 3 of which averaged double-figure scoring.

NKU had a disappointing showing in their only D1 matchup of the season so far - a 79-57 home loss to Kent State. During that game they shot 30% from the field and 19% from 3 while the Kent State shot 54% from both inside and outside the arc.

The Bearcats are 6.5-point favorites on the road.

Is there any piece of info I've missed on Reed, and why he's not entered a game yet while being dressed but could see run tonight?

From what I heard, he was initially considering taking a redshirt, but with John Newman out for several months with a knee injury/surgery and Daniel Skillings' recent ankle injury, Reed will be needed on the court now since we only have 9 healthy players.

With both of our taller guards out, I'm guessing we'll mostly go small with DDJ, MAW, Phinisee sharing the 80 minutes available at the 1/2 spots. That leaves Davenport, Nolley, and Hensley to play the 3/4 and Reed can contribute a little.

I wouldn't mind going bigger though and giving Ody a shot at playing some 4. Then we could play Davenport mostly at 3 and give Nolley some minutes at SG.

Nolley needs to cut out the midrange pull up jumpers. Twice in the past few minutes he's had a chance to take it to the rim and instead bricked it from midrange.

MAW and Phinisee are so limited on offense.
