Joe D'Amico's NCAAB Revenge Game of the Month
Xavier vs. Cincinnati,
12/19/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 45 - 60
Point Spread: -7½/-110 Cincinnati
Wednesday's winner is Cincinnati over Xavier. This is my Revenge Game of the Month.
Last season's 76-53 win by Xavier saw the biggest brawl of the year. This season, Cincinnati is undefeated at 10-0 and is outscoring foes by an average of 23.1 PPG. The Bearcats have more experience and savvy, led by Guard's, Kilpatrick, Wright, and Parker (44.9 PPG combined). The big edge in the matchup will be on the glass where the squad has a slew of solid boardsmen. Xavier is still trying to mesh together all their new faces. They lost to Pacific and Vanderbilt, both games in which they were big favorites. They put too much emphasis on inexperienced frosh. Take Cincinnati here. Thank you.
