I don't get this.

Your saying Houston is better than UC? Because UC at home is pretty damn tough.

What big on Houston is better than Kyle Washington? What big is better than Gary Clark? Who do they have guard Jacob Evans?

I don't think anybody is saying Houston is better than UC.

That said, Houston absolutely can win this game if they play well. They probably need UC to have a subpar game as well but that's true for most really good teams at home.

yep, that's what I was getting at. UH needs to play great and Cincy have a B game for there to be a chance.

And the game isn't played on paper. Yeah, UC has more "talent," but both teams are greater than the sum of the parts. It will definitely take a good game from Houston but this UC team is due for a loss at home.

RE: 1/31 AAC Basketball Games
Houston Does need this win far more than UC does.

Ha but I don't want them to get into the tourney because they beat us at home.

Looking at their resume using the new RPI Tier system, they need to sweep us or sweep SMU.

Here is there Resume thus far: [Image: PgqDpheXXMQxyjJeSAuHscw0Urle0iZEk1dZB9sE...ize_mode=3]


Compared to UC's which is in much better shape: [Image: 3RefIky9zvA_wk4ADsROgjwPdsyxc7ZiGSVIgb_D...ize_mode=3]

It'll come to Ohio State on our first game next year.....

I'm not sure anyone is arguing that UC's isn't in better shape. Why the comparison? I'm hoping that Houston gets a few (non-UC) wins that keep them on the right side of the bubble. I'd love four AAC teams in the tourney.

IMO. UC would have to have more like a D game. They'd have to shoot 30%, not grab any offensive rebounds and just not show up defensively.


But the good thing about this UC team so far is that they've yet to come into a bigger game unprepared, especially at home. I mean we tore meat from SMU and they were fully healthy.

I mean, Temple went into Houston and gave them a hell of a game. Temple came into BB&T and looked like they wanted to get back on the plane after 10 minutes or so
