- I am still giddy over the win. Huge road win for MU. The RPI got a nice boost. Now, they need to take care of business at St John's & Seton Hall
- Senior leadership really prevailed. Lazar, Mo and Cooby all stepped up big. That being said, the player of the game was Jimmy Butler. Another gutsy performance from the Texan.
- MU's undersized guards continue to struggle defensively. They were getting beat off the dribble repeatedly in the first half, which lead to dump-offs to UC's bigs or wide open treys.
- UC is a mess up and down the bench. Yancey Gates didn't play the last 12 minutes of the game. Lance Stephenson only played 11 minutes and Cronin brought Deonta Vaughn off the bench. There is no doubt that UC has substantially more talent than MU, but they don't play together and don't give maximum effort. Gates needs to lay off the Skyline and get on a fitness program.
- Cincinnati is a football school, gentlemen. They only had 10k at the game yesterday. This was probably their biggest game in 4 years and they couldn't fill the joint on a non-NFL Sunday.
