Bearcats Pick Up 74-59 Win Over Nebraska

Rob Leifheit-USA TODAY Sports

And the freshman lead the way.

I have made this point before, but it seems more obvious than ever that the Bearcats need to put the ball in the hands of Troy Caupain and ride with the freshman. He is the best, and probably only chance the Bearcats have to form something resembling competence outside of the play of Sean Kilpatrick.

His stat line today was not overwhelming, 5 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and no turnovers, but his impact on the outcome was much greater. The only player who had a higher offensive rating while consuming more possessions was fellow Freshman Kevin Johnson, who happened to have the best game of his career to date. The Bearcats are in good hands with these two, Mick just needs to trust them more.
