The East Carolina Pirates will go against the Cincinnati Bearcats in an American Athletic Conference First Round clash in Dickies Arena, Fort Worth, Texas, on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 1:00 PM (EST). With an 8-point defeat to Wichita State, East Carolina’s season came to a close.

 

The Pirates concluded the season with an overall record of 15-14 and a conference record of 6-11. They’ll strive for a win in the opening round of the AAC Tournament when they face a Cincinnati squad that beat them twice this season. Early in January, the Bearcats defeated East Carolina 79-71 at home before edging the Pirates 60-59 on January 30th. 

 

In terms of East Carolina, a closer look at the two games reveals that the Pirates shot a total of 35 percent in both losses. In addition, against Cincinnati’s defense, they turned the ball over 29 times. Finally, the Pirates committed 36 fouls throughout the course of the two matches, resulting in 40 Bearcat free throw attempts.

 

Regardless of Cincinnati’s issues, the Pirates will need to improve their shooting and defensive efficiency to have a shot in this game.

East Carolina Pirates vs Cincinnati Bearcats Predictions 3/10/2022

 

Early in January, it looked like the Cincinnati Bearcats would win an at-large invitation to the NCAA Tournament and make a splash in the AAC’s elite top division. The Bearcats were 11-4 and returning from a rout of SMU at home.

 

It seemed as though the sky was the limit. After nearly two months, the Bearcats are 6-10 and appear to be looking forward to the season’s finish. The truth is that the Bearcats have the talent to defeat any team in the AAC, as seen by wins against SMU, Wichita State, and Illinois.

 

For Cincinnati, it needs to start at the defensive end. In the team’s first fifteen games, Cincinnati was placed 69th in KenPom’s defensive efficiency rankings, holding opponents to only 60.5 points per game.

 

In the two games against the Bearcats, East Carolina managed 65 points per game and shot only 35 percent. Cincinnati needs to return to that level of defensive ferocity if it is to regain its winning ways.

 

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Cincinnati’s last 10 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Cincinnati’s last 7 matches against East Carolina.
  • The University of Cincinnati Bearcats is 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches in the AAC.

East Carolina Pirates vs Cincinnati Bearcats. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Cincinnati Bearcats. Cincinnati is definitely the more talented of these two faltering teams. They’re a tournament squad that can compete with anyone when they’re at their best.

 

They may be quickly overturned by strong teams and struggle with ordinary ones at their worst. The Bearcats, in my opinion, will be well-prepared to compete in the AAC Tournament.

 

The Bearcats have the type of defense that can suffocate opponents, and if they strike from long range, the score can soon become lopsided. They’re going to fire a lot of long balls and prioritize volume over accuracy.

 

East Carolina is likewise a poor shooter that relies on the three-point shot. Cincinnati, on the other hand, is a better perimeter defensive squad than East Carolina. The Bearcats are expected to win the fight from downtown and keep the Pirates’ offense at bay. Cincinnati will win predicted at 72-65.
