USF-Cincinnati preview


USF at No. 13 Cincinnati

When/where: Noon; Fifth Third Arena, Cincinnati

TV/radio: CBS Sports Network; 98.7-FM

Records: USF 11-10, 2-6 American; Cincinnati 20-2, 9-0

Notable: Both teams are coming off their biggest victories of the year. Two nights after USF's 78-71 upset of SMU on Tuesday, the Bearcats held off a furious Louisville rally for a 69-66 road triumph. … Bearcats senior G Sean Kilpatrick, who scored 28 at Louisville, had 18 in Cincinnati's 61-54 victory at USF 15 days ago. … USF again must get quality minutes from backup point guards Shemiye McLendon and Josh Heath (five total assists, four turnovers vs. SMU) to allow starter Corey Allen to play off the ball for stretches. Allen had 18 points against the Mustangs, the most he has scored in league play. … An encore from 6-foot-8½ freshman Chris Perry (18 points, eight rebounds Tuesday) is equally critical.
