There's always one revisionist historian who thinks he can trick you into believing nonsense. The Martin injury happened THREE MINUTES into the Saint Louis game. Bearcats had won 21 of 22 games, including beating Billikens by 43 on Senior Day.
@tsnmike @GoBearcatsMBB @marchmadness @BillBender92 Probably lose in Sweet 16. Best team in the country early in the year- versatile, balanced, lots of weapons. Peaked early and became more one dimensional w every game. Struggled to beat mediocre teams by end of year and were getting dominated by StLouis before the KMart injury
That's going to be a damaging loss for Rhode Island's at-large hopes, falling at home to Saint Louis. Rams have lost three of their last five and face Dayton at home on Wednesday. Their lack of impressive wins will be an issue on Selection Sunday; beating Dayton would solve that.
