Cincinnati outpaces Blue Raiders, 89-54December 20, 2003 · MT Media Relations
Middle Tennessee led four times within the first six minutes before the deep Cincinnati team began to pull away with a furious defensive effort. The Bearcats capitalized on 25 Blue Raider turnovers, scoring 35 points off the errors. Cincinnati turned the ball over four times.
"Offensively we were hit or miss and we kind of got down on ourselves," head coach Kermit Davis said following the game. "Our team is going to be fine and we're going to learn from this. Cincinnati is one of ten or fifteen teams with a chance to make the Final Four."
The Blue Raiders return to Murphy Center for one last game before the Christmas holiday, facing Austin Peay Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
