And I can't quite believe it. The Bearcats have played out of their skulls for the last 60 minutes of basketball action. What's needed is 40 more minutes of that same kind of magic against the oldest rival in the book. As many have said this is an old Metro Conference showdown that just happens to be taking place in a conference with a different name. And in the Worlds Most Famous Arena.

It's fitting really. UC is one win away from declaring themselves as being back officially. And the chance is there to do it on what is, outside of the final four, the biggest stage in the sport. Unfortunately I won't be available for the game thread but my esteemed partner James Rapian will be around to keep you guys from getting too crazy. I might not be here, but you can bet your ass that I will be tweeting up a storm, losing my voice and quite possibly getting kicked out of my hotel/a bar. Vitals below, charts after the jump and the gamethread at the bottom. Go Bearcats!
