I'm going with the current stretch because, even though it is one fewer games, it's conference season, the stakes are high, and they are all currently chasing us. Better be ready...

Current stretch hands down. Too much at stake including a regular season conference championship and momentum going into the conference and NCAA tourneys and potential seeding.

One is water over the dam while the other can still make a difference.

And Wichita x 2 = 4 games.

I voted for the non con stretch which included going into Cintas against a pumped up X team. Also, SMU's injuries took them down a notch. @Houston might be the toughest game of this stretch IMO.

Good point. Although there are three games in between, playing in Wichita on their senior day will be a monumental task.

RE: Which of our stretches are the toughest?
I know at the time I felt like the OOC for that stretch was key for what kind of team we had and our national perception but I knew that even if we did worse than 2-2 we still were the conference favorites and needed to go after the championship. I didn't think we would have a 3 game lead in the conference race either but we're so close to achieving an incredible goal (Mick's first outright regular season championship title in Cincinnati) that every remaining game is key until we clinch. And beating WSU at least once will continue to help our seed line. As many have said before, it's not how you are playing in December/January that impacts as much as in March. I realize that overall success is based on the entire season but in terms of momentum and playing your best it is most welcome/critical right now.

Plus, for the most part, these coaches and team are familiar with UC.

Yup. Some of these conference teams we've played a lot in the past years and you can't sneak up on 'em or show something they've not played against. Which is why I'm still amazed we've managed to run the conference table thus far...
