Queens_NYC is on a distinguished road

Fifth Third Arena

The Bearcats (18-11 [10-7 AAC], NET #81, KenPom #66) welcome SMU (10-20 [5-12 AAC], NET #206, KenPom #179) to Fifth Third tomorrow for their regular season finale and Senior Day celebration.

The Bearcats will be honoring 5th-year seniors Rob Phinisee, Kalu Ezikpe, and David DeJulius with a pregame ceremony.

A loss for SMU on Sunday would give the Mustangs their worst conference record out of their 10 seasons in the AAC. SMU's only road win of the season was a 79-76 victory at Tulsa over 6 weeks ago.

The Mustangs are a better defensive team than offensive team, which was evident during our 54-52 win at Moody in January. Only Memphis has forced more turnovers during conference play, and the Bearcats gave the ball away 17 times themselves in our first match-up.

The Mustangs also shoot the second-most free throws in the AAC after Memphis, but are the league's worst shooting team at the charity stripe, where they only hit 63.4%.

The Bearcats will play the loser of Temple vs Tulane (which is being played concurrently with UC/SMU) in the Quarterfinals of the AAC Tournament next Friday, March 10th.
