Bearcats Fall In Polls; SK Wins AAC POW Again

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Predictably, the Bearcats were dropped in both major polls this afternoon. In good news: Sean Kilpatrick wins his second AAC Player of the Week award

After a beatdown in Dallas over the weekend, the Bearcats have fallen to 10th in the AP and 11th in the Coaches polls today.  The fact that they lost to the now 23rd ranked team in the country on their home court, a court in which they haven't lost on all season, apparently necessitated such drop.  Of course, had it been by less than 21 points perhaps they wouldn't have fallen as much.

But as they say "it is what it is."  In my eyes as much as the polls are important, they're not nearly as important as the computer rankings.  As of right now, UC stands 14th in the CBS RPI and 26th on KenPom, which are more accurate in predicting where UC is going to be seeded.  Of course, these two being 10 spots apart means no one really knows where UC would be seeded right now....so there's no need to worry about it just yet.

After averaging 24 points, 9 rebounds, and 4.5 assists in two games last week, Sean Kilpatrick has been named the American Athletic Conference Player Of The Week for the second consecutive week.  It's a well-deserved honor for the Senior who has practically carried this team over the last few weeks.
