The Bearcats and the Huskies are becoming relatively easy to handicap from an outsider’s perspective. Cincinnati is a team that really is having a tough time beating some of the best teams in the Big East. The squad was beaten by the Georgetown Hoyas on Friday night by eight at home, and that marked the third loss over the course of the last four games. The last victory against a team that is likely to make the NCAA Tournament came back on January 19th against the Marquette Golden Eagles and the last truly signature win was way back on New Year’s Eve. The team hasn’t scored more than 68 in regulation since the game against Marquette either. Connecticut meanwhile, seems to get up for its biggest games of the year. The team knocked off the Syracuse Orange and has a ‘W’ on the road at the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, but it has losses to teams like the St. John’s Red Storm and the Villanova Wildcats as well. This is one of those in between games for both squads. The Huskies aren’t the top echelon of teams in the Big East, but they aren’t chopped liver either. Cincinnati is a bit closer to Villanova and St. John’s than Syracuse, but it is still a tourney team no less. In the end, the home court advantage in Storrs is going to go a long way in this one, and we think that the Huskies will ultimately pull out a victory.
