Mind Over Body

Migraines and serious injuries behind him, junior guard Cashmere Wright is poised to lead UC’s tournament run

Pain came from inside Cashmere Wright’s head, looking to get out, pulsing, like his brain was expanding beyond what his skull could contain.

The Reds’ playoff odds got a bump last week. Without adding a player or any injury to a rival occurring, the playoffs got that much closer for Cincinnati.

Winners of their first seven games, including wins at Vanderbilt and Butler, the Musketeers were living up to their billing and were ranked No. 8 in the country.

The University of Cincinnati’s conference future is beginning to look a lot like its conference past, and that’s not a good thing. Last week Memphis accepted a bid to the new-look Big East, which is suddenly starting to resemble the old Conference USA.

Following in the footsteps of Frank Robinson, Josh Hamilton could forever be the one who got away from the Reds. But the reason Hamilton was deemed expendable (wrongly, in retrospect) keeps popping up, while Robinson’s exile is still a mystery.
