The perception is most certainly there that the Blue Jays are the better of these two teams, and we just aren’t sure that that is the case. The Missouri Valley was weak this season, as demonstrated by the fact that its champ is a No. 7 seed and the only other team it got into the field is an overrated No. 9 seed. F Doug McDermott could take over the entire tournament, but he also could be in some trouble knowing that he is playing in a lousy bracket. The Blue Jays really needed to get into a draw with some teams that are going to run and gun and let them play fast. Cincinnati is going to prevent just that from happening. Truthfully, the Bearcats don’t have a choice. G Cashmere Wright, G Sean Kilpatrick, and G JaQuon Parker are all that they bring to the table offensively, and they are all streaking shooters. However, UC also ranks 24th in the land in total defense at 58.8 points per game allowed. Cincinnati has been in suspect form of late, going just 1-7 ATS in its last eight games, but we think that this is its day to get back in the saddle. If this one stays close, many think that McDermott would be the one delivering the fatal blow, but we have to remember that the three guards for the Bearcats are awfully experienced at this level, and all of them would step up and take the big shot if need be. We like the Big East reps in a mild upset on Friday.
