The Bearcats a making history on a daily basis. Yesterday was the first time the Bearcats had ever earned the double bye and entered the Big East Tournament at the quarterfinal stage. Yesterday was also the first time that the Bearcats advanced beyond the quarterfinals. That makes today the first trip to the Big East semi's for UC. That's nice, but winning against Syracuse would be even nicer. This team is capable of beating Syracuse. But it will take a very good, very disciplined very smart game from everyone involved to make that happen.
