Ya we ever score 15+ in the first 10 minutes we all will pass out. Grown to expect it though.
Man this team needs a big who can score! Rubles didn't shoot a whole lot tonight either! Mick must have layed into him pretty good for shooting all those 3's! lol! He made some nice passes driving in the lane tonight, and taking the ball to the hoop is obviously his strong suit. Hope he sticks to that!It was ugly but a win non the less!!!!
Nawwwww, frustrating ain't it? You ain't alone in your thoughts. Trust me.

Who was that masked man at forward???? Jackson stepped up, hope it is signs of things to come.....Good Job Jumpin' Jackson. It was 6 blocks. Been watching kenyon tapes?......that's it. That's who he reminded me of. Kmart's first yr, every time he came in, kabooooomb out went a ball from his block. You could see he was going to dominate. http://news.cincinnati.com/art...es-past-Rutgers Bill Koch.
If you’ve been wondering whatever happened to the old Justin Jackson, the one whose trademarks were blocking shots, diving for loose balls and furnishing an abundance of on-court energy, you weren’t alone.
So was Justin Jackson.
But the 6-foot-8 junior forward was back to his old self Wednesday night, providing the spark that helped the University of Cincinnati Bearcats shake off a lethargic first half and a 10-point deficit to turn back Rutgers, 62-54, before 11,024 fans at Fifth Third Arena.
Making his first start since Jan. 5 against St. John’s, Jackson scored seven points, snared seven rebounds, blocked a season-high six shots, and at one point almost ran out into the hall to save a ball from going out of bounds, much to the fans’ delight.
“He played the best game he’s played all year,” said UC guard Sean Kilpatrick, who led UC with 19 points, 14 in the second half. “He really got back to the old Justin Jackson that’s blocking everything, saving everything, jumping in the crowd, and being the energy guy we need him to be.”
Jackson was at a loss to explain why he rediscovered his game when he did, but UC coach Mick Cronin said he could see it coming during practice the last few days. “It’s been building up in me and just came out,” Jackson said. “I hope it stays out. That’s my game. To be the energy guy, do the little things and do the dirty work.”
No. 24 UC (17-4 overall, 5-3 in the Big East) got off to a terrible start after an eight-day layoff. The Bearcats missed their first seven shots, fell behind, 13-5, and trailed by eight at intermission after the Scarlet Knights (12-8, 3-6) made six of 10 from3-point range in the first half.
