Cincinnati "Ready" for Memphis Tonight 

There's a story that sounds like a bit of wishful thinking on the Cincinnati Enquirer website today. It's all about how the University of Cincinnati is better prepared for the Memphis Tigers tonight than they were last year. Uh huh. Sure.

A sample: Things got so out of hand last season when the University of Cincinnati basketball team played Memphis that ESPN2 broke away to show another game.

The Bearcats, 4-5 and losers of three straight games - all on the road - hope to make a better showing tonight against the No. 2 Tigers.

Last year's game at Memphis was one of the low points of the season for UC. The Tigers took an 11-0 lead on the way to an 88-55 victory.

"When we played Cincinnati, we started hitting our stride," Memphis coach John Calipari said.

"That was when we went on a 25-game win streak. Cincy caught us at a bad time for them, a good time for us. We started realizing we were better than we thought."
