Sunday at Fifth Third Arena against SMU at Noon will be the last regular season home game for all of the seniors. It has been a different journey for all the of the senior three of the four are junior college transfers only Shaq Thomas has been with the program his entire collegiate life.

Farad Cobb has been a very good shooter/scorer from deep since arriving to Cincinnati last year. Cobb is very active defensively and was able to play both guard positions for the Bearcats. He has been a player who could get hot and carry the team occasionally. He is currently battling an injury that has kept him out the last two games so hopefully Farad can play a few more games before his Bearcat career is over.

Before joining the black and red, he had a stint with Northwest Florida State College.

Cobb has been the American Athletic Conference Player of the Week once, and has made the AAC Weekly Honor Roll five times.

During his two years with Bearcats he has a stat line of 9.5 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 39.6% from the field, 36.8% from three and 79.7% from the foul line.

His career high in points came 11/19/14 against Morehead State with 24.

His career high in threes made (as a Bearcat) came 1/7/16 against SMU with 6.

His career high in steals came 2/21/15 against Houston with 5.
