Wichita State Shockers vs. Cincinnati Bearcats

Where: FedExForum, Memphis, TN

When: Saturday, March 16, 5:00 PM. ET.

The Cincinnati Bearcats will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Wichita State Shockers in the semifinals of the AAC tournament on Saturday evening.

Shockers Looking For A Little March Magic

The Shockers didn’t play well enough to make the NCAA tournament this season, but they have made it to the semifinals of the AAC tournament and are hoping their strong play late in the season can help them get back in the Big Dance.

Wichita State is average an average offensive team, scoring 70.6 points per game. The team is shooting 40 percent from the field and 31 percent from three-point range.

Markis McDuffie leads the way for the Shockers with 17.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game. Samajae Haynes-Jones is averaging 12.2 points and 2.7 assists per game, while Jaime Echenique is averaging 8.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

The Shockers have done well defensively, holding opponents to 69.5 points per game. They gave up 74 points in their game against Temple and will need to play much better if they want to upset the Bearcats on Saturday.

Bearcats Going For Fifth Win In Seven Games

The Bearcats snapped their two-game losing streak with a win over SMU in their last game and advanced to the semifinals of the AAC tournament. They will be trying to pick up their second win in a row and fifth win in their last seven games when they face the Shockers on Saturday.

Cincinnati has played well offensively, averaging 71.6 points per game. The team is shooting 43 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

Jarron Cumberland leads the way for the Bearcats with 18.4 points and 4.4 rebounds per game. Keith Williams is averaging 10.6 points and 3.2 rebounds per game, while Tre Scott is averaging 8.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

The Bearcats are one of the best defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to 62 points per game, which is 11th best. They held SMU to 74 points in their last game and will need to play better to get past Wichita State on Saturday.

I am very passionate about sports, so I kind of feel bad that I get paid to do this. As someone who minored in Mathematics, I have a lot of faith in numbers, and make my picks based on stats and not emotions. I've been successfully picking winners for quite some time, so stick with me if you want to get paid.
