The Bearcats might be setting the game back a ways style wise but they can be very effective. They are one of the best defensive teams in America.
As such they are almost always in the game as they are very effective and mucking things up so that a few critical possessions can make all of the difference.
They have no stars but they also have nobody who thinks they are a star either.
The closest they come is lead guard Troy Caupain. He has talent but he is often put in some very tough spots too. Its hard when you are shooting with the shot clock winding down every time.
Cincinnati is one of the most physical teams out there and it is hard to simulate in practice. They just keep coming at you until you submit.
St. Joe’s Hawks
The Hawks finished second on the A10 this season but took the championship game over VCU. All those extra wins gives them a nice record heading into the tournament. Plus momentum.
SJU leans heavily on a couple of key players in Isaiah Miles and DeAndre Bembry. The two average 35ppg combined and are as lethal a 1-2 punch as any team has in the tournament. Cincinnati will be a test though.
Both are strong wing players but they are not going to be used to the physicality they will see in this one. How they respond will determine whether they move on.
If those two are knocked off their game it will be very tough for this group to win. Only one other players scores more than 8ppg and they really don’t have the kind of shooters to start lighting things up.

Free Cincinnati Bearcats vs. St. Joe’s Hawks CBB Prediction:
The key for this one is going to be tempo. If the Hawks can get this game at faster pace that is their best chance to win. That is a tough task against Cincinnati though.
This is an eight nine matchup but the lower seed is actually a slight favourite. That usually tells you a lot about what people think.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Cincinnati Bearcats -2
This could easily be one where the team with the best player on the floor prevails. If that is the case then things look a lot better for the Hawks.
Either way this one should get down to the wire. Neither team is likely to get too far in front.
