Raising Bearcats is on a distinguished road
I saw a stat not sure which board it was on. There has been 17 times that a team has played back to back road games in conference. The teams are 1-16 in those games. Sundays loss was tough because we had the ball 3 times with a chance to win. We are playing well and playing our way into the tournament. It isn't all about where the team ends its also the journey along the way. It has been a fun season so far. I can't wait for Memphis. Go Cats!!

Cincrulz11 brought this up a little while back. In 2020 the Bearcats are ranked #18 on T-rank. Houston is #8. Tulsa was at #14 a couple of games ago but are now 41st and several teams in the AAC in the 70's. We managed to beat the class of the AAC (so far) in our house.

We are playing very good basketball this year (2020). We are playing like a ranked team at the right time. Outside of 1 or 2 early speed bumps this is what most of us wanted...trending in the right direction come tourney time.

The main problem right now IMO is our rotation is shrinking rather than expanding. We got a clunker at Uconn out of Diara, McNeal, Mika and Harvey. We are going to get tired if that continues. Diara has been inconsistent. Mcneal has been pretty bad all year. MAW isn't aggressive on offense anymore and fouls too much on D which puts teams in the bonus earlier than we would like. Harvey went from a good game vs Houston back to being a non factor in the next two games.

and we've done it with defense. defense is 19th best in the country since Jan 1. 5th best in the country in 2 point defense.


we've reverted back to old teams on the boards. top 30 in offensive rebounding and 225 in defensive rebounding. we were 106 on offense and 105 on defense prior to Jan 1.

W might be #1 in the country in D over that time span at home IDK. But we have to make it travel. It's been a mixed bag on the road. I don't think it's necessarily really bad D as opposed to some lucky shooting which gives the other team confidence and gets the crowd going. They all cool down in the 2nd half...but the first half barrage has been keeping the crowd in it.

We're #1 in home floor defense since January 1, #124 in offense and #4 overall.

On the road since January 1, we're #21 offense, #191 defense, and #48 overall.

These are only six game samples we're talking about though. Southern Utah and Merrimack are top 6 road defenses in the same time period. Indiana St is #3 in home defense. Can't really draw conclusions from that.

teams are shooting 41.4 % from 3 in conference when we're on the road. 23.6% at home.



fluke on both of those stats.

I think that tells you it's not the scheme. We literally have seen some crazy shooting first halves and that is not an understatement. For those that think a team can shoot 60% or above in a half just because we leave them open are brain dead. We have seen some deep shooting from 3...I can put up with that. We (as every team does) have watched some open 3's...getting canned...but even open 3's are subject to probability.
