No. 38 Cincinnati (No. 60). The 22-spot leap was justified after the Bearcats proved themselves against a team with a winning record – even if that team was Rutgers, to be fair.
I'll take it.
Offensively, Houston ranks in the upper tier of the AAC in most categories. Houston quarterback John O’Korn leads true freshmen nationally with 23 touchdown passes, but the pace has slowed lately. Houston was held to a season-low 195 yards against Louisville last Saturday.
Fourth. Fourth in literally everything.
In its first season under coach Kevin McGeehan, Campbell is led by 6-9 forward Darius Leonard, a transfer from Kent State who averages 17 points and 7.7 rebounds. He shoots 56.8 percent from the field. The Camels will use a spread motion offense and will play a lot of matchup zone on defense.
Campbell (2-2) made just 2 of 19 shots, including 1 of 9 from 3-point range in the second half. The Camels also had 15 turnovers and got destroyed at the foul line. N.C. Central made 16 of 22 free throws to just 5 of 8 for the home team.
9 second half points for the Fighting Camels. 9 is not very many.
