What a nigh for junior Eric Hicks. The Greensboro, North Carolina native exploded against the South Florida Bulls with a team best 19 points while also grabbing 11 rebounds. The night gave Hicks his eighth double-double during his Bearcat career and fifth of this season.
The victory keeps the Bearcats holding onto a share of first place in Conference USA. With two of the next three games being on the road, the Bearcats needed to start this span of games off on the right foot.
