--- 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.
