Breaking Down Cincinnati Bearacts Men’s Basketball Schedule, Game By Game

The 2017-2018 Cincinnati Bearcats Men’s Basketball season begins on Friday as the host Savannah State at noon from their temporary home for the season at NKU (BB&T Arena).

UC is ranked 12th to start the season highest under the Mick Cronin era. Lots of expectation for this team this season.

Notables:

  • Will Cane Broome live up to expectations?
  • Jarron Cumberland is going to explode in his Sophomore year, maybe?
  • Is Jacob Evans ready to take the next step as the guy when it comes leading the team in scoring and having the ball with the game on the line. Big Game Jake. Must live up to that.
  • Will Gary Clark’s senior season be his best?
  • Can Kyle Washington be consistent especially in the big games because we know what he can do when he is.
  • Its time for Justin Jenifer to make that leap and be the guy we need with Cane needs a breather.
  • The bench is Mick’s best. Can it live it up? Trevor Moore, Keith Williams, Nysier Brooks and Tre Scott. Looking at y’all.

Alright let’s breakdown the regular season, game by game and yes I’ll predict every game.

Why is this a noon  game on a Friday? We don’t know. First couple of minutes cause of nerves but they’ll be firing up on all cylinders.

Can’t stand this team and university. But X is good at home and this UC team is more than capable of beating them in Cintas. I just don’t see it. I hope I’m wrong.
