East Carolina

Cincinnati (12-2) @ East Carolina (7-6)
Saturday, January 5, 2019 @ 1:00 p.m.
CBS SN

Thinking the spread will be -16. They haven't beaten any team worth talking about and they just lost their first AAC game @ SMU by 28 points.

I feel like this game will be kind of ugly due to the lack of road experience, and I feel like in the past that's how it has looked when we have been @East Carolina. We should still win convincingly.
Prediction:
UC 72
East Carolina 58

Hopefully I am wrong and we look as sharp as we do at home because that will help road confidence even though it's just East Carolina.

Still hoping to see a 3 go down from Cane

Scott has been a little off the past two games, South Carolina State and Tulane. Would like to see him get back on track.

I watched a portion of ECU's game against Charlotte a few weeks ago and they looked bad against an equally bad team. I actually think they're going to finish worse than Tulane in conference play and occupy the 12th spot in the standings.

ECU is the smallest team in the league so I think it's a good chance for our bigs to get their mojo back as their shots won't be as tightly contested under the hoop.

If we keep the same ball movement we did against Tulane than I don't think we'll have any problem scoring, even if our outside shots aren't falling at a crazy percentage like they did Wednesday.

I like us to win by 15-20 points.

9-0 run to start the game with the only missed shots coming from a missed fast break dunk by Brooks and Williams and Scott clanking wide open 3s.

Getting the absolute worst out of every player on the court right now. If this is par for the course for the rest of our road games then we're in trouble.
