Keys to the Game

 

Inside Play

Both of the team's in Tuesday night's Big East showdown will look to work in the paint more often than Sherwin Williams.  UConn is a team that features only one consistent deep threat, a player that utilizes the 3-point shot as a regular part of their offense. Mel Thomas, a Cincinnati native who has hit a Big East-leading 53 3-pointers this season, is the only Huskie averaging more than one per game.  Connecticut likes to pound the ball inside.  Mixing their height, skill and athleticism to do the job, the Huskies are able to create offense through great ball movement and unmatched size to get some easy looks and offensive putbacks against smaller teams.  Connecticut has already totaled 313 offensive rebounds this year, almost 60 more than their competitors, and have two players providing more than two second chances per game. 

 

When UConn establishes their presence down low, it opens up scoring opportunities from the outside for players such as Thomas and Renee Montgomery, as well as a few of their struggling young shoulders in Ketia Swanier (6-of-28; UConn's best passer) and Meghan Gardler (6-of-27). If UC has double consistently down low, it could create enough space for these struggling marksmen to get into enough of a rhythm to do some serious damage to both the Bearcat defensive effort and the team's designs on an upset.

 

The Bearcats are a tream that doesn't shy away from tossing the ball down low either, as they like to take the ball inside, particular early on in the contest. In the last several games, Laurie Pirtle has looked to get the ball down in the paint to Michelle Jones early and often to both establish a low-post scoring threat, open upside outside shooters, and try to draw some of the Big East's biggest players into early foul trouble.  Look for the 'Cats to follow the example of UConn and try to pound the ball in the paint early on.  In addition to the pure post moves of Jones and backup center Emy Ogide, Karen Twehues and Jill Stephens will use their face-up game to help open up the lane for one-dribble takes to the basket and create some open area in the paint in a fashion similar to that of UC's penetrating backcourt.  Twehues and Jones have also been very good on the offensive glass for the Bearcats this season.   If the Bearcats can establish a low-post presence it will help to open up their struggling 3-point game.

 

Defensive Rebounding

The mixture of UConn's size along with the Bearcats recent struggles rebounding the ball defensive could make the points in the paint category and second-chance opportunities very one-sided statistics.  Against Marquette, UC continued a seemingly season-long slump that has seen them really struggle with some of the basics of the game, such as boxing out and defensive intensity.  While for the season UC has one the overall season rebounding category quite convincingly against their opponents overall, 822 to 636 (41.1 to 31.8), the ‘Cats have battled consistency in that department all season long.  This has been especially the case against the teams that simply outmuscle or out jump Cincinnati.  If the Bearcats do not bring that game-long intensity to the floor from the opening, as well as an emphasis on doing the little things like getting good positions on boxouts and holding their position, then UC will simply getting pounded with second chance opportunities and offensive putbacks for the entirety of the affair.

 

Turnovers

Cincinnati has to play perfect basketball, plain and simple.  That does not mean that they have to make every shot but they have to at least make sure that they have the opportunity to take as many shots as their opponents do.  In recent games Cincinnati has struggled with turnovers, which is putting it mildly.  The Bearcats have turned the ball over at least 20 times in seven of their last nine contests and are averaging 18.5 per game on the season. This sloppy play not only takes away from potential Bearcat baskets but also gives the opposing team both extra possessions and uncontested looks in the open court.  It is safe to say that turnovers, moreover unintelligent basketball, as directly lead to at least three of their losses this season and maybe more. While many of these offensive miscues come as an opportunity cost for the up-and-down, frantic style of play head coach Laurie Pirtle likes to run, most of them come as the product of both poor decision making and sloppy play.  Not knowing the situation of where to make a pass, not recognizing how many seconds remain on the shot clock, taking their eyes off passes, traveling or palming penalties, and just not using their basketball IQs have been the greatest hindrances to UC playing quality basketball. 

 

Overall Intensity/Hustle Points

While this isn't one of the dominant UConn that features the great names of Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Swin Cash and Rebbeca Lobo of yesteryear, this is still a formidable Connecticut squad with designs on making a Final Four run come March.  For that reason, knowing that the talent they will see on the opposing sideline will be matched by no one they will square off against for the remainder of the season, Cincinnati must realize that they cannot go to toe-to-toe with the Huskies and beat them on talent alone.  UC will have to engage the Huskies in a game of "‘Cats" and mouse by making sure to outthink and out execute the UConn, as well as bring unrivaled passion to the game.   This is a potential chance for Cincinnati to make a name for themselves on a national stage and formally announce their presence as a fully-fledged member of the Big East conference.  UC must do all the small things in order to have a chance at success on Tuesday night.  The best indicator of the Bearcats ultimate success (simply being in the game at all) or failure against the Huskies will be the "hustle equation" (steals + second chance points + offensive rebounds + points off turnovers + opponents turnovers) BCI used last season to predicate success or failure for the men's basketball team.  Cincinnati will have to win this statistical battle if they have any hope of winning the 40-minute war.

Noting the Two Sides

* Michelle Jones leads UC in starts this season with 19. She is the only Bearcat to start every BIG EAST game this season.

* UConn leads the BIG EAST in 10 of 20 categories. The Bearcats lead the conference in rebounding defense (31.8).

* The game will feature two of the best ball handlers in the league. UConn's Ketia Swanier leads the BIG EAST in the assist/turnover ratio at 2.26. Cincinnati's Carla Jacobs is right behind her with a 2.13 ratio. Both average 4.4 assists per game. The contest will also feature two of the best from 3-point range. Mel Thomas is second in the conference in 3-point field goal percentage (.445), while Karen Twehues is fifth (.392).

* UC is 7-45 all-time vs. Top 25 teams. The Bearcats' most recent win over a ranked opponent was on Jan. 14 when UC defeated then ranked No. 24 DePaul, 62-44. UC is 1-3 this season against ranked foes. The Bearcats are 0-3 vs. teams that received votes (Northern Illinois, USF, Xavier).

* The Huskies are 61-8 on the road since Feb. 1, 2001.

* Connecticut will be attempting to become the 18th team in NCAA Division I women's basketball history to total 700 wins in its program's history when it takes on Cincinnati at Fifth Third Arena.

*  The Huskies have won six of its last seven games overall entering Tuesday night's matchup with Cincinnati and are a perfect 8-0 in BIG EAST play.  The will be 9-0 in league play for the second consecutive season and the ninth time in the program's history when it meets Cincinnati. The Huskiers are 92-7 in their last 99 Big East contests.

* UConn is 6-1 on the road this season, a perfect 4-0 in conference road games and has won 61 of its last 69 road games dating back to Feb. 2001.

 

UConn/UC share the weekly Honor Roll awards

UC's Carla Jacobs and Connecticut's Kalana Greene were both heralded for their individual performances this past week by the Big East conference.  Jacobs earned Cincinnati's first Big East Women's Basketball Weekly honor since joining the league in 2005-06, being named Freshman of the Week.

 

Jacobs, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, had a career week as she averaged 16.0 points, 6.0 assists and 3.5 rebounds, while shooting 6-of-6 from the foul line. The guard tied her career-high with 15 points and dished out a career-high 10 assists in the team's 80-62 win over Georgetown (1/23/07), nabbing her first career double-double. She bettered her offensive production with a new career-high 17 points in UC's loss to No. 18/17 Marquette (1/27/07). Jacobs shot 6-of-15 from the field, including a 3-of-6 effort from 3-point range.

 

Jacobs, one of only nine true freshmen Division I point guards who start in their team's season opener, is averaging  14.0 point for the 'Cats in the past three games (8.4 overall on the season) and has dished out a team-high 83 assists.  The teenager's efficient passing and veteran-like court awareness has helped her rank second in the Big East in assist/turnover ratio (2.13). UConn's Ketia Swanier leads the conference at 2.26.

 

Connecticut's sophomore forward Kalana Greene (Saint Stephen, S.C.) was named the BIG EAST Women's Basketball Player of the Week, marking the fifth weekly conference honor earned by a UConn player this season and the first player of the week recognition.

Greene averaged team-bests last week with 17.5 points and 9.5 rebounds over UConn's 2-0 week, that included wins over DePaul and Notre Dame.

Familiarity breeds contempt

While the two teams have only met once in their collectively rich women's basketball histories, the University of Cincinnati and University of Connecticut have had their fair share of on-court battles.  However, those battles preexisted the collegiate careers of these young teams.   Many of these athletes have had high school or AAU battles during their high school days.

 

UConn's Mel Thomas and UC's Michelle Jones both played at Mt. Notre Dame in Cincinnati where they led the team to a 28-0 record and a Division I state championship together. Jill Stephens finished second in the West Virginia Ms. Basketball voting to UConn's Renee Montgomery, who attended South Charleston, located an hour and 15 minutes south of Parkersburg South, where Stephens played. UC's Stephanie Stevens played at Pickerington Central High School, just 30 minutes from Brittany Hunter's alma mater, Brookhaven High School. UC's Emy Ogide grew up outside of Atlanta, Ga., just a two-hour drive down I-185 to Columbus, Ga. where Ketia Swanier is from.

When \r\nUConn establishes their presence down low, it opens up scoring opportunities \r\nfrom the outside for players such as Thomas and Renee Montgomery, as well as a \r\nfew of their struggling young shoulders in Ketia Swanier (6-of-28; UConn's best \r\npasser) and Meghan Gardler (6-of-27). If UC has double consistently down low, it \r\ncould create enough space for these struggling marksmen to get into enough of a \r\nrhythm to do some serious damage to both the Bearcat defensive effort and the \r\nteam's designs on an upset.

\r\n

 

\r\n

The \r\nBearcats are a tream that doesn't shy away from tossing the ball down low \r\neither, as they like to take the ball inside, particular early on in the \r\ncontest. In the last several games, Laurie Pirtle has looked to get the ball \r\ndown in the paint to Michelle Jones early and often to both establish a low-post \r\nscoring threat, open upside outside shooters, and try to draw some of the Big \r\nEast's biggest players into early foul trouble.  Look for the 'Cats to follow the example \r\nof UConn and try to pound the ball in the paint early on.  In addition to the pure post moves of \r\nJones and backup center Emy Ogide, Karen Twehues and Jill Stephens will use \r\ntheir face-up game to help open up the lane for one-dribble takes to the basket \r\nand create some open area in the paint in a fashion similar to that of UC's \r\npenetrating backcourt.  Twehues and \r\nJones have also been very good on the offensive glass for the Bearcats this \r\nseason.   If the Bearcats can \r\nestablish a low-post presence it will help to open up their struggling 3-point \r\ngame.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Defensive Rebounding

\r\n

The \r\nmixture of UConn's size along with the Bearcats recent struggles rebounding the \r\nball defensive could make the points in the paint category and second-chance \r\nopportunities very one-sided statistics.  \r\nAgainst Marquette, UC continued a seemingly season-long slump that has \r\nseen them really struggle with some of the basics of the game, such as boxing \r\nout and defensive intensity.  While \r\nfor the season UC has one the overall season rebounding category quite \r\nconvincingly against their opponents overall, 822 to 636 (41.1 to 31.8), the \r\n‘Cats have battled consistency in that department all season long.  This has been especially the case \r\nagainst the teams that simply outmuscle or out jump Cincinnati.  If the Bearcats do not bring that \r\ngame-long intensity to the floor from the opening, as well as an emphasis on \r\ndoing the little things like getting good positions on boxouts and holding their \r\nposition, then UC will simply getting pounded with second chance opportunities \r\nand offensive putbacks for the entirety of the affair.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Turnovers

\r\n

Cincinnati has to play perfect basketball, plain and \r\nsimple.  That does not mean that \r\nthey have to make every shot but they have to at least make sure that they have \r\nthe opportunity to take as many shots as their opponents do.  In recent games Cincinnati has struggled \r\nwith turnovers, which is putting it mildly.  The Bearcats have turned the ball over \r\nat least 20 times in seven of their last nine contests and are averaging 18.5 \r\nper game on the season. This sloppy play not only takes away from potential \r\nBearcat baskets but also gives the opposing team both extra possessions and \r\nuncontested looks in the open court.  \r\nIt is safe to say that turnovers, moreover unintelligent basketball, as \r\ndirectly lead to at least three of their losses this season and maybe more. \r\nWhile many of these offensive miscues come as an opportunity cost for the \r\nup-and-down, frantic style of play head coach Laurie Pirtle likes to run, most \r\nof them come as the product of both poor decision making and sloppy play.  Not knowing the situation of where to \r\nmake a pass, not recognizing how many seconds remain on the shot clock, taking \r\ntheir eyes off passes, traveling or palming penalties, and just not using their \r\nbasketball IQs have been the greatest hindrances to UC playing quality \r\nbasketball. 

\r\n

 

\r\n

Overall Intensity/Hustle \r\nPoints

\r\n

While this isn't one of the dominant UConn that features \r\nthe great names of Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Swin Cash and Rebbeca Lobo of \r\nyesteryear, this is still a formidable Connecticut squad with designs on making \r\na Final Four run come March.  For \r\nthat reason, knowing that the talent they will see on the opposing sideline will \r\nbe matched by no one they will square off against for the remainder of the \r\nseason, Cincinnati must realize that they cannot go to toe-to-toe with the \r\nHuskies and beat them on talent alone.  \r\nUC will have to engage the Huskies in a game of \"‘Cats\" and mouse by \r\nmaking sure to outthink and out execute the UConn, as well as bring unrivaled \r\npassion to the game.   This is \r\na potential chance for Cincinnati to make a name for themselves on a national \r\nstage and formally announce their presence as a fully-fledged member of the Big \r\nEast conference.  UC must do all the \r\nsmall things in order to have a chance at success on Tuesday night.  The best indicator of the Bearcats \r\nultimate success (simply being in the game at all) or failure against the \r\nHuskies will be the \"hustle equation\" (steals + second chance points + offensive \r\nrebounds + points off turnovers + opponents turnovers) BCI used last season to \r\npredicate success or failure for the men's basketball team.  Cincinnati will have to win this \r\nstatistical battle if they have any hope of winning the 40-minute war. \r\n

\r\n

UConn/UC share the weekly Honor Roll \r\nawards

\r\n

UC's \r\nCarla Jacobs and Connecticut's Kalana Greene were both heralded for their \r\nindividual performances this past week by the Big East conference.  Jacobs earned Cincinnati's first Big \r\nEast Women's Basketball Weekly honor since joining the league in 2005-06, being \r\nnamed Freshman of the Week.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Jacobs, a \r\nnative of Cleveland, Ohio, had a career week as she averaged 16.0 points, 6.0 \r\nassists and 3.5 rebounds, while shooting 6-of-6 from the foul line. The guard \r\ntied her career-high with 15 points and dished out a career-high 10 assists in \r\nthe team's 80-62 win over Georgetown (1/23/07), nabbing her first career \r\ndouble-double. She bettered her offensive production with a new career-high 17 \r\npoints in UC's loss to No. 18/17 Marquette (1/27/07). Jacobs shot 6-of-15 from \r\nthe field, including a 3-of-6 effort from 3-point \r\nrange.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Jacobs, one of only nine \r\ntrue freshmen Division I point guards who start in their team's season opener, \r\nis averaging  14.0 point for the \r\n'Cats in the past three games (8.4 overall on the season) and has dished out a \r\nteam-high 83 assists.  The \r\nteenager's efficient passing and veteran-like court awareness has helped her \r\nrank second in the Big East in assist/turnover ratio (2.13). UConn's Ketia \r\nSwanier leads the conference at 2.26.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Connecticut's sophomore forward Kalana Greene (Saint \r\nStephen, S.C.) was named the BIG EAST Women's Basketball Player of the Week, \r\nmarking the fifth weekly conference honor earned by a UConn player this season \r\nand the first player of the week recognition.

Greene averaged team-bests \r\nlast week with 17.5 points and 9.5 rebounds over UConn's 2-0 week, that included \r\nwins over DePaul and Notre Dame.

\r\n

Familiarity breeds contempt

\r\n

While the two teams have only met once in their \r\ncollectively rich women's basketball histories, the University of Cincinnati and \r\nUniversity of Connecticut have had their fair share of on-court battles.  However, those battles preexisted the \r\ncollegiate careers of these young teams.   Many of these athletes have had \r\nhigh school or AAU battles during their high school days.

\r\n

 

\r\n

UConn's Mel \r\nThomas and UC's Michelle Jones both played at Mt. Notre Dame in Cincinnati where \r\nthey led the team to a 28-0 record and a Division I state championship together. \r\nJill Stephens finished second in the West Virginia Ms. Basketball voting to \r\nUConn's Renee Montgomery, who attended South Charleston, located an hour and 15 \r\nminutes south of Parkersburg South, where Stephens played. UC's Stephanie \r\nStevens played at Pickerington Central High School, just 30 minutes from \r\nBrittany Hunter's alma mater, Brookhaven High School. UC's Emy Ogide grew up \r\noutside of Atlanta, Ga., just a two-hour drive down I-185 to Columbus, Ga. where \r\nKetia Swanier is from.
