Still struggling to make sense of the Bearcats win last nigth but still making the rounds
Overall this is a win, all be it a crazy one, to pad the tournament resume as the Georgetown Hoyas are going to win their share of games this year. It was especially important to get a win tonight because, as I mentioned, this game marked the beginning of the toughest five-game stretch on the schedule. The Bearcats host the Villanova Wildcats on Saturday before taking on #16 UConn, West Virginia, and #1 Syracuse. Cincinnati certainly started it off on the right foot.
"I’m really happy with my offer from Cincinnati. All my hard work is finally paying off," Rankin said. "I even shed a tear coach Mark Elder told me. I had a loss for words. He told me they were offering me not just because I am a good athlete, but that I have good character and I am a good leader and that meant a lot to me that somebody sees me in that way."
Rankin could be the first member of the class of 2013
