The Cincinnati Bearcats women’s basketball team returns to action on Wednesday at noon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

UC will play the Temple Owls in an AAC matchup that will be televised online on GoBearcats.com.

Cincinnati enters the matchup with a 16-10 overall record and an 8-5 mark in the AAC. The Bearcats are on a three game winning streak, which they punctuated with a 78-41 home win on Saturday against the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.

Temple enters the game on a four-game skid, punctuated by a 106-45 drubbing at the hands of UConn last Sunday. The Owls hold a 10-16 overall record and a 2-11 mark in the AAC.

This will be Cincinnati and Temple’s second meeting of the season. On January 13th, the Bearcats topped the Owls 80-72 at home in a contest held at St. Ursula Academy.

Senior guard Tanaya Atkinson is the Owls’ undisputed leader. She is one of the AAC’s top backcourt players, averaging 21.4 points per game and better than 9 rebounds per contest. Freshman forward Mia Davis has been an impressive frontcourt contributor for Temple this season, averaging 11.6 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.
