This Bearcat team has some real problems, and all of them start on the offensive end. The Bearcats defense is usually good enough to mask those issues. But against New Mexico it was not, for a variety of reasons. UC didn't match up well with the Lobo's from the start and struggled on the boards because they simply aren't big and/or good at rebounding.
This team is becoming more and more like last years team, generally good defense. But no offense to speak of outside of Sean Kilpatrick. UC will probably string together Micks fourth straight 20 win season. They will probably make the tournament again. But this team has no hope at all of making it out of the first weekend once again.
