The internet is a big, wide open, scary place. Why should you have to dive into its depths and find stories that pertain to the Cincinnati Bearcats when we can do it for you? Here’s what the world wide web has to offer today.


Northern Kentucky, which will be hosting Cincinnati next year while Fifth Third Arena is being renovated, won the Horizon League and made the NCAA Tournament in its first year of eligibility. (James Pilcher; Cincinnati Enquirer)

Gary Clark is a nice guy. He is also a problem. He will need to be more of the latter in March. (John Fay; WCPO)

We’ve had four years of the American Athletic Conference. Some teams have separated themselves as the upper tier, while others have fallen to the bottom. (Spencer Tuckerman; OhVarsity!)

Predictable is not something you want to be in the NCAA Tournament. Versatile is. UC is both to varying degrees. (Justin Berg; Bearcat Journal)

Mick Cronin thinks Cincinnati’s patented aggressive style is making it a target for “rough play” from opponents. He may not be wrong. (Tom Groeschen; Cincinnati Enquirer)
