    Cameron Ridley

The Bears dropped a 79-70 decision at Texas (14-16, 6-11 Big 12), with Sheldon McClellan scoring 23 points off the bench on 9-of-15 shooting. The game was really decided by Texas’ offensive prowess.

    Cincinnati v Louisville

    Louisville makes its living on defense. It did last season in their run to the Final Four. They’ve kept it up this season as one of the favorites to get back there.
