I bet you thought that the game between the Cincinnati Bearcats and Florida State Seminoles was going to be a wide-open contest with beautiful transition basketball and lots of spectacular offensive plays. Based on the way these teams have played throughout the season, it would have been silly to expect anything else. Instead, they're doing the unthinkable. It's been a slightly slow, tough, defensive game with both teams struggling to make shots, and FSU leads Cincy 26-25 at halftime.
All jokes aside, this is exactly what everyone thought it was going to be. It's close, both teams are playing great defense, and no one can create easy shots. Cincinnati is shooting a terrible 28 percent from the floor, and FSU isn't a whole lot better at 35 percent. The 'Noles have 10 turnovers, while Cincy has eight. This is basically all par for the course.
