UC AT U.S. BANK ARENA

BACK VS. THE MAC

·         Cincinnati and Miami University have been long-time rivals, dating back to the first game in the series in 1903-04.

·         From 1947-1953, the rivalry took on special meaning as Miami joined Cincinnati, a charter member, in the Mid-American Conference.

·         After the Bearcats captured the first five league titles from 1947-51, Miami won at least a share of the next two before UC’s departure from the MAC.

·         Overall, the Bearcats own a 188-117 (.616) record vs. teams currently from the MAC.

·         The No. 19 ranking is the Bearcats highest since Jan. 31, 2005 when they were No. 17 in the ESPN/USA Today poll and No. 18 in the AP.

·         The Nov. 30 polls marked the first time in UC Athletics history that both the football team and the men’s basketball program have been ranked nationally at the same time.

·         Despite shooting 1-of-6 from the field in the first half, freshman Lance Stephenson contributed in other ways grabbing six boards and dishing out five assists. Stephenson finished with seven points, a career-high 11 rebounds, and a career-high seven assists for the game.

NOV. 24 - GONZAGA GAME NOTES

·         Gonzaga improved to 2-1 all-time against the Bearcats with the 61-59 overtime win.

·         In overtime, Cincinnati was 1-for-6 from the floor and 2-for-7 from the free throw line and fell to Gonzaga, 61-59.

·         UC had a season low six turnovers but shot a season-low .354 (23-of-65) from the field.

·         For the first time this season, UC was held below 10 offensive rebounds, grabbing nine against the Bulldogs.

·         The Bulldogs finished the game 16-of-23 from the charity stripe compared to 5-of-11 for the Bearcats.

During the 2005-06 season, UC opened the season holding Howard and Tennessee-Martin to 17 first-half points and 15 first-half points, respectively, in the first two games.

·         A Deonta Vaughn 3-pointer with 1:30 to play in the first half gave the Bearcats a 23-16 lead, its largest lead of the half, but a Stephen Gray trey with 13 seconds left UC in front 23-19 at the half.

·         Cincinnati went on a 9-2 run from the 11:10 to 8:10 of the first half to take a 16-11 lead.

DEFENSIVE STOPPERS ...

·         One of the major reasons for Cincinnati’s success in the early part of the season has been its defense, which has held opponents to 37.3 percent shooting (122-of-327) and 60.5 points per game.

·         The Bearcats came into the week ranked 27th in field-goal percentage defense and 45th in the nation in scoring defense.

·         In the three games during the EA Sports Maui Invitational, UC held each opponents’ top scorer coming into the game below their season average:

 

Opponen t                Player Avg.*    Pts. vs. UC

Vanderbilt                  Jeffery Taylor    19.5     11

Maryland                    Sean Mosley     15.0     9

              Landon Milbourne    15.0     7

Gonzaga Matt Bouldin 18.2          6

* - Average points heading into game vs. UC.

 

... AND REBOUNDING FIENDS

·         Besides defense, the other main characteristic of UC basketball over the last 20 years has been rebounding.

·         Heading into this week, the Bearcats were ranked No. 2 in the nation in rebounding margin at +12.8 per game.

·         Cincinnati is pulling down 44.5 boards per game, while limiting opponents to 31.7 rebounds.

·         Four times this season UC has posted 45 or more rebounds in a game (Prairie View A&M - 47, Vanderbilt - 53, Maryland - 47, Texas Southern - 47).

·         Sophomore Yancy Gates has shown tremendous improvement on the glass improving his average from 6.1 rebounds per game as a freshman to  a team-best 8.3 boards per game this year.

·         Gates has posted double-digit rebounds three times this season and UC is undefeated in those games (Prairie View A&M, Vanderbilt, Maryland).

·         Dion Dixon and Lance Stephenson have Cincinnati’s other two double-figure rebounding performances.

 

SAND, SUN, AND HOOPS

·         After opening up with Prairie View A&M (Nov. 16) and Toledo (Nov. 18), the Bearcats made their first appearance in the EA Sports Maui Invitational hosted by Chaminade University on Nov. 23-25 at the Lahaina Civic Center.

·         In the first two rounds, the Bearcats knocked off nationally-ranked opponents No. 24/24 Vanderbilt, 67-58, and No. 21/22 Maryland, 69-57, marking the first time since the 1999-00 season UC has beaten ranked opponents in back-to-back games.

·         The wins propelled UC into the championship game of the Maui Invitational vs. Gonzaga. With UC leading by as many as 10 points midway through the second half, Gonzaga rallied and forced UC into overtime for the first time this season where the Bulldogs came away with a 61-59 victory.

·         Sophomore forward Yancy Gates and senior guard Deonta Vaughn were named to the all-tournament team. Gates was the Bearcats top scorer and rebounder in the tournament, averaging 14.7 points and 10 rebounds per game. Vaughn averaged 10.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 4.3 assists.

·         The Maui Invitational was Cincinnati’s fifth trip to the Hawaiian Islands for an early-season tournament. They played in the 1975-76, 1989-90 and 1994-95 Rainbow Classics hosted by the University of Hawaii and won the 1999-00 Big Island Invitational tournament.

·         UC now owns a record of 9-6 in the islands.

 

GOOD OUT OF THE BLOCKS

·         Since head coach Mick Cronin took over the program in 2006-07, his teams have traditionally gotten off to strong starts, posting a record of 18-5 in the month of November.

·         The Bearcats have gone 5-1 in November twice under Cronin (2006-07 and 2008-09).

·         Senior guard Deonta Vaughn is UC’s top active scorer in the month of November averaging 14.8 points in 23 career games.

·         With a win vs. Miami, the Bearcats would start the season 6-1 for the second straight season.

 

VAUGHN IN SEARCH OF HISTORY

·         Senior guard Deonta Vaughn has started his first three years at Cincinnati for head coach Mick Cronin where he has twice been named all-BIG EAST Conference (1st team in 2007-08; 3rd team in 2008-09) and led the team in points and assists all three years.

·         In UC’s game vs. Toledo he became the 12th player in school history to score 1,500 points in his career and the fifth to post 400 or more career assists. Only Oscar Robertson, Steve Logan, and now Deonta Vaughn have scored 1,500 points and dished out 400 assists in their career in Clifton.

Currently Vaughn is climbing several career lists at UC and needs:

18 points to tie Jason Maxiell (2001-05) for 11th on the career scoring list with 1,566 points.

Nine starts to tie Steve Collier for fourth all-time in career starts with 104.

198 minutes to tie Jason Maxiell (2001-05) for fifth in career minutes played with 3,563.

Four 3-pointers to tie Steve Logan (1998-02) for fourth on the career 3-point field goals made list.

Eight assists to tie Oscar Robertson (1958-60) for third on the career assists list with 425.

11 steals to tie Tarrance Gibson (1989-93) for fifth on the career steals list.

 

LENDING A HELPING HAND

·         Last season the Bearcats finished 76th in the nation in assists per game, averaging 14.6 a contest.

·         Through six games this season, Cincinnati is ranked 21st in the nation dishing out 17.0 assists per game, led by senior guard Deonta Vaughn (4.8 apg). Vaughn is 82nd in the country in assists per game.

·         Vaughn’s 2.64 assists-to-turnover ratio is 52nd in the NCAA.

 

FINAL PIECE OF ROSTER CERTIFIED BY NCAA

·         Just prior to the University of Cincinnati’s first exhibition game on Nov. 5 vs. Saginaw Valley State, freshman forward Lance Stephenson was certified by the NCAA to begin competing immediately.

·         Stephenson, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound forward who was named the 2009 BIG EAST Conference Preseason Rookie of the Year, committed to the Bearcats on June 30 after a highly-decorated prep career at Lincoln High School (Brooklyn, N.Y.), where he averaged 28.9 points, 10.2 rebounds, and 3.9 assists to earn Class AA New York State Sports Writers Association (NYSSWA) Player of the Year honors his senior year. He graduated high school as the all-time leading scorer in the history of the state of New York with 2,946 points, passing fellow Lincoln High grad Sebastian Telfair, who was the 13th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft and now plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

·         Stephenson made his college debut starting the season opener vs. Prairie View A&M. He scored seven points, pulling down four rebounds and dishing out two assists vs. the Panthers.

·         He is the Bearcats third-leading scorer and fourth-leading rebounder at 10.7 points and 5.5 boards per game.

 

A BOOST OFF THE BENCH

·         After providing UC with a key cog off the bench the first five games of the season, sophomore Dion Dixon earned his first start of the year and the sixth of his career vs. Texas Southern. It was his first start since Dec. 29, 2008 against Memphis. Dixon finished with a season-high 13 points.

·         As the Bearcats “sixth man” during the first five games, Dixon averaged 6.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist per contest.

·         He posted his first double-double of the year coming off the bench vs. No. 24/24 Vanderbilt in the opening round of the Maui Invitational with 12 points, 10 rebounds, and an assist as Cincinnati knocked off the Commodores, 67-58.

 

BEARCATS PICKED SEVENTH IN BIG EAST

·         For the first time since joining the BIG EAST Conference in 2005-06, the University of Cincinnati was picked to finish in the upper division of the league in the preseason poll being selected to finish seventh by the coaches.

·         The Bearcats also earned individual preseason honors as senior guard Deonta Vaughn earned first-team all-BIG EAST plaudits and freshman Lance Stephenson was named the league’s Rookie of the Year.

·         Jackson is ranked No. 92 among the top ESPN 100 recruits and was the first player to sign during the early period with the Bearcats.

·         Jackson, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound power forward with strong defensive and rebounding skills, starred last season for Montverde Academy and head coach Kevin Sutton where he posted 15.0 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 3.1 blocked shots per game as a junior. He was named to the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches (FABC) and Florida Sports Writer’s Association (FSWA) State All-Independent team (for players not participating in district competition).

·         This season, Jackson transferred to Jacksonville Arlington Country Day where he will play for head coach Rex Morgan. In preseason action, Jackson has posted 18 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks per contest for the Indians.

·         Gaines, a 6-foot-10, 225 pound center, averaged 10.1 points, 9.9 rebounds and 6.2 blocks in 2008-09 playing for Jason Niblett at Heat Academy in Martinsville, Va. The Heat finished the season with a record of 50-8 and was ranked as high as No. 12 in the national prep school polls.

·         Kilpatrick averaged 28.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 6.0 assists over his four-year high school career at White Plains High School and finished as the school’s all-time leading scorer.

·         Three times he earned all-state, all-section, all-league and all-county honors.

·         He played one season of prep ball at Notre Dame Prep for Ryan Hurd.

 

FIFTH THIRD ADVANTAGE
