    Entering Tuesday night’s date with No. 20 Memphis, offensively-challenged No. 15 Cincinnati had scored more than 80 points in a game just five times. Their victims?

Brennan has Kentucky at No. 1, a number that I’m not sure that I can get behind. The Wildcats are coming off of an ugly season, one which saw them underperform throughout the…
