Women's Hoops Update

--- The women's basketball team dropped their third consecutive contest Tuesday at St. John's. Here is a recap from the News Record, the independent student newspaper at UC.

--- Head coach Jamelle Elliott said that the No. 23 Red Storm would be out for blood after Cincinnati upset St. John's last year and that's exactly what happened.

--- Last season's result against the Red Storm was her inaugural Big East win as a coach.

--- The Bearcats are just beyond the half way point of the regular season at 8-9 and are into the swing of the always challenging Big East conference with a 1-4 mark.

--- Senior guard Shareese Ulis is the team's leading scorer with 15 a game, while no other Bearcat is averaging double figures. Here is a feature on Ulis, emphasizing how valuable she is to the squad.
--- Ulis failed to reach 10 points in her last game for just the third time this season.

In addition to the senior, the starting line up consists of two freshman, Tiffany Turner and Kayla Cook, junior Division-1 transfer from Vanderbilt, Chanel Chisholm and a sixth-year senior Shelly Bellman.

Turner leads the team in rebounding with nearly seven per game.

This is Elliott's second season with Cincinnati. She has the distinction of being the only current coach who also played in the league.

Despite poor shooting from the field, the Cats have been consistent from the charity stripe. They shot a combined 77 percent in seven games prior to the Rutgers game on Saturday. 

The schedule does not get any easier for Cincinnati who travel to Louisville Saturday for a 2 p.m. tip in a rematch with their longtime rival. The Cardinals handed them a lopsided loss on Dec. 15.

The Bearcats then host DePaul and No. 2 UConn in next week's slate of games. The two squads are a combined 11-0 in conference and currently hold the top two spots in the league standings.
