Cayman Islands Classic
Here are the current Pomeroy rankings.

Cincy - 11
Iowa - 52
Wyoming - 78
Louisiana Lafayette - 110
Buffalo - 151
SD State - 120
Richmond - 189
UAB - 119

UAB opens with Richmond next Monday. A win would likely result in a game against Cincy.

That would be a great re-uniting of Games of the past, No Huggins though. He went West. Virginia. Just looks like Cronin, oh well. Think we might be ready for the Bearcats once again.

Not looking forward to facing this Cincinnati team... they are a legit Final 4 team this year. (my track record for being pessimistic in my picks this year has been phenomenal)

Well, we beat them when they were number 1. You be pessimistic and I'll be optimistic.

They were #3 when we beat them in 1996. Their #1 team beat us in 2000. The closest we have come to beating a #1 team was Memphis in 2008.

You be optimistic. I'll be factual.

I look forward to probably playing Cincy and the next game whoever it might be.

Even though Richmond will probably stink, the following 2 games should be good tests.

We really, really need to payback Memphis & AU.

We will need Nick & William to start playing like they are capable.

Thank you Sir, Was pretty sure they were number 1 but hey beating the number 3 team to be corrected is a pretty good accomplishment. I'll try to be optimistic. Will never be pessimistic, But Factual is Great.

If I recall correctly, UAB beat Cincinnati by one point in 1996 at Bartow Arena. UAB hit 16 out of 17 free throws. Anthony Thomas and Jeremy Bearden and Carlos Browning and Cedric Dickson and the bunch were on that team? Am I remembering correctly, Memphis Blazer? And Archie Johnson was an assistant coach, as was Murry Bartow? And wasn't that Anthony Thomas's final game at UAB before being suspended, resigned from the team? Wasn't it Coach Bartow's final season as head coach at UAB?
