How to Watch, Stream, Listen: No. 9 Cincinnati Bearcats at Memphis Tigers

Memphis is actually pretty good at home (12-1) so this might be a game worth watching.

NCAA Basketball: Memphis at Cincinnati Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 9 Cincinnati Bearcats and the Memphis Tigers will run back their matchup from earlier this season when the two teams face off at FedExForum on Saturday. Here’s how you can watch or listen.

  • Tipoff: 6 p.m. ET
  • Television: CBS Sports Network
  • Announcing crew: Brent Stover (play-by-play), Steve Smith (analyst) and Gary Parrish (sideline reporter)
  • Radio: 700 WLW
  • Announcing crew: Dan Hoard (play-by-play) and Terry Nelson (analyst)
  • Series history: The Bearcats are probably stoked about getting a rematch since the first meeting was so easy. With an 82-48 victory, the Bearcats improved to 42-33 all-time against Memphis, which is UC’s fourth-most played opponent. The Bearcats have won four of the last five meetings.

Memphis isn’t the only team to feel the full might of the Bearcats (18-2, 7-0 American Athletic Conference). Firmly in first place, UC has won 11-straight games, last experiencing a loss all the way back on Dec. 9. The Bearcats are ranked No. 6 in the country by KenPom and No. 2 in adjusted defense.

The good news for the Tigers (13-7, 4-3) is they had a whole week to tune up for this game, as they have been off since losing to Tulsa last Saturday. The setback ended a four-game winning streak for Memphis, which is the No. 157 team on KenPom’s rankings and an impressive 12-1 at home.
