Cincinnati beat Pittsburgh on their home court on New Year’s Eve, 70-61. Now they get that same Panthers team at Fifth Third Arena where they are 10-3.
The Bearcats will be looking for a bounce back effort on their side of the scoreboard in this one after
scoring a season-low 50 points against Providence. Cincinnati scored 44 points in the second half of their
first meeting with Pittsburgh.
The Bearcats are a better team than even their record indicates, as their five losses have come by a total
of 14 points.

The Bearcats outrebounded the Panthers 30-27 in the first meeting. The Bearcats have been outrebounded just three times through 23 games this season.
The Bearcats are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a loss. Take Cincinnati.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
