The Cincinnati Bearcats (15-11, 6-8 BIG EAST) look to stop a two-game losing skid on Wednesday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. as it hosts DePaul University (8-18, 1-13 BIG EAST). The Bearcats lost at home in overtime to Marquette, 79-76, in its last outing, while DePaul lost at Louisvile, 68-59, in its last game. The Blue Demons have lost eight straight and are 1-10 since interim head coach Tracy Webster took over the team on Jan. 11. Wednesday's game will be telecast on the BIG EAST Network and locally on FOX Sports Ohio (alternate channels) with Jim Barbar (play-by-play) and Mark Adams (analyst) handling the call. Dan Hoard (play-by-play) and Chuck Machock (analyst) will call the game on 700 WLW.



Wednesday's game will be the 46th meeting between Cincinnati and DePaul and the sixth since UC joined the BIG EAST. The Bearcats hold a 30-15 lead in the series, which began in 1949-50. Last year, the schools split a pair of games with UC winning in Chicago, 59-55, and the Blue Demons winning in the first round of the BIG EAST Championship, 67-57.

·         As a team, the Blue Demons are being out rebounded 38.0-32.9 boards a game.

·         DePaul takes care of the basketball and is ranked 15th in the nation in turnovers per game, coughing the ball up just 11.0 times per contest.

·         Trailing 31-18 with 7:47 left in the first half, UC went on a 21-2 run over the next 7:08 to lead 39-33 at the half, its largest lead in the first half.

·         It was UC's biggest halftime lead since leading by nine against UCF at Fifth Third Arena (Jan. 20).

·         The Bearcats had 20 assists in the game, after combining for 12 in the previous two contests.

·         UC's fell to 0-3 in overtime games this season.

·         Marquette was 16-of-17 from the free-throw line. Their miss came in the extra stanza.

·         After scoring three points in his previous three games, Larry Davis finished with 13, tying his season high (Prairie View A&M/Nov. 16).

·         UC's final four opponents own a combined record of 84-41 (.672).

The losses were to No. 23 Pittsburgh, 74-71, on Jan. 4 (Cincinnati's first at home this season), and to No. 3 Syracuse, 71-54, on Feb. 7.
