The Cards continued their winning streak yesterday by beating Cincinnati 72-63. They earned their practice uniforms back, which Pitino stripped from them after that humiliating Notre Dame loss.
T Will had 20 points, 8 boards, 5 assists, and 3 steals and played all 40 minutes. Earl had 14 points and 9 boards and was 5-6 from the charity stripe.
Preston continued his streak of being awesome, coming of the bench for to hit 3 of 3 three-pointers and finishing with 11. Did I mention he's awesome?
What else is awesome is that this team is starting to show some signs of life on the offensive end of the court. The Cards shot better than 48% from the field. This comes after a 55% shooting and 94 point outing against Providence, and a 59%, 99 point performance against DePaul. Making shots is cool.
Pitino said after the game that he emphasized hitting the boards against UC, and we won that category, 33-24.
Very little time to celebrate as we head to Georgetown for a 7:00 Big Monday tip-off tomorrow. More on that later.
Preston Knowles is awesome.
