Bearcat is on a distinguished road

Cincinnati finished up the regular season by pounding Georgetown (for the second time this season) 69-47 on Saturday. The win brought Cincinnatiís record to 24-7, and 11-7 in the Big East (tied for sixth with West Virginia). Cincinnati is currently ranked 17th by Ken Pomeroy, fifth highest in the BE.

While the Bearcats non-conference schedule was very weak, their overall SOS was 64th (again, according to KenPom). Going 24-7 against the 64th ranked schedule in the country is certainly reason to be optimistic about where this team is right now, and where this program might be going in the future. Not a bad year.

Unlike the last couple of seasons, Cincinnati wonít have to sweat out selection Sunday, as they should be comfortably positioned regardless of the Big East tournament. As a little tribute to a tremendous season, here are Cincyís best wins:

Opponent KenPom Rank Score Seton Hall 56 70-53 Xavier 36 66-46 @St. Johns 31 53-51 Louisville 13 63-54 @Georgetown 28 58-46 @Marquette 34 67-60 Georgetown 28 69-47 Iím looking forward to post-season play!
