Cincinnati 74, DePaul 66: That Was Too Close For Comfort | Bearcats Nation

Syracuse Orange crush St. John's, 95-70 - Rumble In The Garden

Transition defense. St. John's has to do a better job at defending in transition. In the first half - before the Red Storm sent all of their players to press in the Syracuse backcourt - the Johnnies let Orange shooters spot up on the wings, and they took shots with impunity. They only hit 7/21, but there were open shots. It was a fast-paced game - 43 possessions in the first half - and that may have played a factor.

Hopefully the Bearcats and Johnie's can engage in a terrible transition off as opposed to a terrible basketball off which seems to be the case any time these two play.
