There was no realistic expectation that Cincinnati would win every game it played this season. However, its still disappointing that it only took three games for the Bearcats to fall short, as a 76-71 loss against No. 21 Rhode Island was a major letdown considering UC led by as many as 12 points in the game.
But the loss was not a doomsday scenario, as the Rams are a solid team in their own right. The Bearcats are still poised for a strong year and that continues today against the Penn State Nittany Lions in the consolation round of the Nasimisth Hall of Fame Tip-Off.
