In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Cincinnati at Memphis.
The Cincinnati Bearcats are currently 10-6 and having decent offense and defense. The team is averaging 73 points per game and allowing 66. They are on a two-game winning streak after beating Tulsa 75-44 and UCF 68-54. Center Chris Vogt is the team’s leading scorer with 13.5 points per game, along with Jarron Cumberland who also has the same numbers. Cumberland is also the team’s assist leader with 3.9 per game. The team lacks size and Chris Vogt is not the typical blocking center. He is more finesse and likes to play from outside.
The Memphis Tigers are 13-3 and are currently ranked 22nd in the college rankings. The team lost two consecutive games to Georga and Wichita before getting back to the win column with a victory over USF. Center James Wiseman is leading the way in both points in rebounds with 19.7 points per game and 10.7 rebounds. He played in just 3 games this year and he is not expected to play today as well. Precious Achiuwa will most certainly take his place and he is the second-leading scorer of the team with 15.6 points per game. He is also very good from deep, possessing 43% shooting from outside the arc.
Even though Memphis will certainly miss James Wiseman in this game, they have shown us this year that they are a team that is not scared of anyone. They are scoring 78 points per game and I do not believe that the Cincinnati defense will be able to handle that.
