Cincinnati Bearcats Basketball

The Cincinnati Bearcats basketball team are sometimes overlooked these days as a force within the NCAA, but the team’s record is undeniable, even if the heights of their success are now quite firmly in the distant past. The Bearcats boasted one of the best basketball players of all time in the 1950s in Oscar Robertson (Big O), with 5 straight Final Four appearances including back to back NCAA championships in 1961 and 1962 (prior to the start of the UCLA Bruins dynasty). In recent times, the Bearcats have remained a force in the Big 12 conference and NCAA March Madness tournament, though they have not progressed to the Elite 8 since 1996. The team’s devoted fans will be hoping for a return to glory in the years to come.
