Coach: Tommy Amaker
Top scorer: Wesley Saunders 14.0
Top rebounder: Steve Moundou-Missi 5.8
Keys to victory: Ball security is first and foremost. Against one of the most tenacious defenses in the country, reaching their 73.6 ppg average won’t be nearly as important as at least getting a shot, hopefully a good one, on most possessions. Next is rebounding, Cincy is 19-3 when outrebounding opponents. Not allowing extra opportunities through turnovers and offensive rebounds is key because the Bearcats are not a good shooting team – 42.7 percent.
