Celebrate Cincinnati

| No TrackBacks

In the season of celebration, it's time to celebrate some of the successes this past week in Clifton.

First, big shoutout and congratulations to Coach Reed Sunahara and the volleyball team on its first BIG EAST title, taking out Notre Dame 3-0 in the finals. The Bearcats were led in the match by tournament Most Outstanding Player Missy Harpenau from Cincinnati's Mother of Mercy High School. The win means the Bearcats get an automatic bid in the NCAA tournament-they'll find out who they play next weekend.

UC has managed to mine several players from the volleyball talent in this area. I had the chance to interview Coach Sunahara on WVXU's "The Front Row" a few weeks ago and he talked about not just the success of his own team, but the successful high school programs in the area. Here's the link to the interview: 

On the basketball side, senior guard Bjonee Reaves was selected to the season's first BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for her performance against Dayton and Evansville. It is the first time Reaves has been named to the league's honor roll.

 Reaves has averaged 16.0 ppg and 5.0 apg in a 3-0 start for the Bearcats. She scored one-third of the team's offense with a career-high 25 points against Dayton on November 16 then continued her success against Evansville two days later, leading three double-digit scorers with 18 points after shooting 7-of-8 from the field. In her last two games, she's had 11 assists and two turnovers.

While the volleyball team will find out this weekend where it will be for the tournament, the basketball team heads to Cancun for the Thanksgiving holiday for a tournament there. Follow them all on www.gobearcats.com as their seasons get exciting!
