TEAM NOTES

  • With the victory, head coach Mick Cronin tied Tay Baker (1966-72) for fourth place on the UC career coaching wins list with 125. He needs one more to match Gale Catlett (1973-78) with 126 victories. 
  • UC Starters: Justin Jackson (f), Cheikh Mbodj (c), Cashmere Wright (g), Sean Kilpatrick (g) and JaQuon Parker (g).
  • UC has started the same lineup in all 12 games this season.
  • UC has won 39 of its last 42 nonconference regular-season home games.
  • UC is 64-21 vs. regular-season nonconference foes under Cronin, including a 52-8 record in Fifth Third Arena.
  • The Bearcats' defense held the Raiders without a 2-point basket for 13:47 to open the game.  The first 2-point field goal for Wright State was a layup by Tavares Sledge at the 6:13 mark.  WSU was 0-12 from inside the arc before the bucket. 
  • Cincinnati employed a 7-0 run that spanned one minute of action to take an 18-15 lead.
  • Wright State answered with an 11-2 run over the next 4:21 to regain the lead at 26-20 with 2:33 remaining in the first half. 
  • The Bearcats entered halftime shooting 24.3 percent from the field while the Raiders finished the opening half shooting 25.8 percent.

  • UC took control of the game with an 11-0 run in the second half.  The run spanned 1:53 and gave the Bearcats a 45-34 lead with 12:52 remaining.  Kilpatrick, Parker, Mbdoj and Rubles all scored during the run.
  • The Bearcats are 12-0 for the eighth time in school history.  The last time UC was 12-0 was the 2010-11 squad which opened the season 15-0.

  • As of Saturday afternoon, Cincinnati is one of only six unbeaten teams in the nation.
  • Cincinnati finished with 10 blocks in the game and has blocked eight or more shots in seven games this season.  The Bearcats only accomplished this feat seven times in all of the 2011-12 season. 
  • UC out-rebounded Wright State 49-38, marking the 10th time this season the Bearcats have finished with an edge in that category. It is the seventh time UC held a double-digit edge in rebounds.

He moved up to 35th place on the UC career scoring chart with 1,097 points, tying Herb Jones (1991-92).  He is one point away from matching Dick Dallmer (1947-50) with 1,098 points for 34th on the list.
