Fifth Third Arena

The Bearcats (3-0, KenPom #51) end their week-long break with a visit from Northern Kentucky (1-2, KenPom #206) this weekend.

The Norse will make the 9.4-mile trip across the Ohio River to visit Fifth Third Arena for the first time since December 4th, 2018, where the Bearcats won 78-65.

NKU opened the 23/24 season with road losses at Middle Tennessee State (74-57) and Washington (75-67) before picking up a home victory against D3 Depauw on Tuesday night (85-68).

Head coach Darrin Horn is in his 5th year in charge of the program and is coming off his first NCAA appearance with the Norse which produced a 63-52 first round loss to #1 seed Houston.

NKU returns three starters from last year's team in 4th-year 6'2 guard Marques Warrick (18.8 ppg in 22/23), 3rd-year 6'5 guard Sam Vinson (11.8 ppg in 22/23), and 4th-year 6'6 guard Trey Robinson (7.0 ppg in 22/23).

The Bearcats will eagerly look to avenge their 64-51 loss to NKU in Highland Heights last season - an affair that saw the Bearcats shoot 4-29 (13.8%) from the field in the 2nd half and 1-6 (16.7%) from the free throw line.

The Norse shot 6-11 (54.5%) from beyond the arc in that game, but have struggled to find that same shooting touch in the early stages of this season where they've made just 19.3% of their 3-point attempts (6-31) against their only two D1 opponents so far.
