The Best of the Best
Wednesday November 19, 2014 vs. Morehead State
In just his second game in a Bearcat uniform, Cobb put on a lights-out effort, churning out 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting, including a 6-of-9 effort from beyond the arc.
Wednesday March 4, 2015 at Tulsa
There must have been something about Wednesday's for Cobb, who nearly matched his Morehead State effort by throwing up 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting (4-of-7 from deep) in a 56-47 win. That means he accounted for nearly 40 percent of the Bearcats' offense.
Thursday March 19, 2015 vs. Purdue
In the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Cobb played a season-high 36 minutes, piling up 14 points on 5-of-11 from the floor (2-of-6 from 3-point range). Even better news, this effort came during another win.
Wednesday November 18, 2015 at Bowling Green
Nearly one year to the day after he scorched Morehead State, Cobb did it again, splashing six 3-pointers on his way to a 20-point night. He would match that point total four days later in a 99-50 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, marking the second of what would turn out to be four 20-point games for him during his senior season.
Saturday January 2, 2016 vs. Tulsa
Cobb sure liked to shoot against the Golden Hurricane. He dropped five 3-pointers on Tulsa's head and wound up with a season-high 21 points in one of the easier conference victories of the season.
Thursday January 7, 2016 at SMU
This should have been a win and Cobb should have been one of the heroes. He scored 18 points, all from 3-point range and also kept the pressure on SMU's backcourt by collecting four steals.
Friday March 11, 2016 vs. UConn
Just about every Bearcat deserves credit for putting everything they had into this one. Cobb finished with 14 points and a season-high six rebounds while playing 51 minutes.
Friday March 18, 2016 vs. Saint Joseph's
Cobb finished off his career in heartbreak, but he played hard for 34 minutes and made four 3-pointers, including a key one the final minutes, to finish with 12 points.
A Final Goodbye
Finding a replacement for Cobb may be harder than finding one for any of the other departing seniors. For example, Kyle Washington will help fill the Octavius Ellis role. However, there is no 3-point shooter like Cobb waiting in the wings. No other player on the team hit more than 33.3 percent from long distance last season (aside from Gary Clark, who went 13-of-25 and isn't going to suddenly become a spot-up shooter). Kevin Johnson stands out as the most likely candidate, but he made just 30.8 percent of his triples last season. Even if its takes time, Cobb helped get UC on the 3-point train so expect it to remain a bigger piece of the offense.
While Cronin tries to work out the details, Cobb will hopefully be working on ripping nets at the pro level. Wherever it is, he should know all of Cincinnati is behind him.
