The Scouting Report
As they voyage into the unknown waters of the newly-christened American Athletic Conference, the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball squad looks to establish themselves as one of the conference's premier programs. So far this season, the Bearcats have found multiple ways to win, from the offensive deluge they showed in their 95–67 drubbing of Kennesaw State to the gritty defensive performance on display in their 44–43 triumph over Pittsburgh. Senior Sean Kilpatrick has emerged as the team's top player, pouring in 18.3 points per game while showing a long-range shooter's touch softer than a pair of silk sneakers.
With 10 national championships to their name and another 76 conference titles to boot, the Cincinnati Bearcats boast more than century of athletic tradition. Though the student athletes thrive in many different sports, the basketball program—which won back-to-back NCAA Championships in 1961 and 1962—is the school's crown jewel. Before embarking on a professional career that earned him a spot among the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, The Big O cut his hard-court skills for the Bearcats, averaging a staggering 33.8 points per game in his three years at UC. In more recent years, the Bearcats football team has enjoyed its own run as a true contender, earning bowl berths in 2009, 2011, and 2012. In both 2011 and 2012, the squad pounced on their postseason opponents, taking home glittering trophies to use as tackling dummies in training camp.
