That lead expanded to 41-26 by halftime.

UC started the second frame with four straight field goals. The Bearcats stretched their lead to 19 points before eventually winning by 16.

"Best scouting report I've ever seen implemented by a coaching staff and carried out by a TRUE TEAM," Cronin said in a tweet after the win.

Associate Head Coach Larry Davis said after the game that even though Cronin is not on the sidelines. He is still involved in a different aspect.

"He's behind the scenes. He helped prepare for this game like he always does," Davis said. "He watched a lot of tape, we met, our whole staff does and he's a big reason we won. He's kind of the GM."

UC was led by Shaquille Thomas' 15 points. Octavius Ellis added 11 points and seven rebounds.
