Houston has a chance to throw itself into serious contention for the American Athletic regular season conference championship with a win at Cincinnati on Wednesday.
Houston is 6–2, two games back of Cincinnati but with a win over Wichita State, which the Bearcats don’t yet have.
The Coogs will get within a game with a win in Cincy and still host the Bearcats later in the season, which could be for a potential tie and tie-break advantage.
But that’s a tall order. Houston has won two in a row but the last time it went on the road, it lost at Tulane, who is just 3–5 in the conference.
Cincinnati has only climbed the KenPom rankings slowly, but surely, since the start of conference play. The Bearcats are up to #6 in the standings and have about an 11-point advantage over the Cougars, according to the metrics.
The Bearcats also haven’t lost on their home floor yet this season. They lost at Xavier and at a neutral site against Florida in back-to-back games in December but those two losses have been in.
Mick Cronin’s team is one of the very best in the country.
Junior transfer point guard Cane Broome has been a crucial addition from last year’s team to this one. He’s shooting 42.6 percent from three-point range, despite only averaging just over six shots per game (from the field).
Going from nearly 18 field goal attempts two seasons ago to just over six this season is a testament to the kind of talent and unselfishness this Cincinnati team has.
