By JOE KAYAP Sports Writer
The Bearcats (9-0) have opened the season with nine wins for only the 10th time in school history. They also did it in during the 2010-11 season, winning their first 15 games.
Cincinnati moved up to No. 11 this week - its highest ranking since it finished the 2003-04 season at No. 11 - off impressive wins over Iowa State, Oregon and Alabama. The Bearcats had back-to-back home games this week against overmatched teams.
They set a school record with 23 steals during an 87-53 win over Arkansas-Little Rock on Thursday. This time, they hit open shots against a winless team. Kyree Jones led the Hawks (0-9) with 25 points.
