Maybe it was a sign: The Bearcats were favored to win, but even the nation's basketball fan-in-chief (President Obama) predicted Harvard would defeat UC when the teams faced off in Spokane on March 20.
Head coach Mick Cronin called the game anything but an upset.
"They've got a great team," he said. "Tough draw for us. In my opinion, they're one of the best teams we played all year."
Despite the Bearcats missing out on the Sweet 16, Tommy G., for one, finds plenty to like about the 2014 basketball season.
Tom Gelehrter (@Tommy_G on Twitter), loves the Bearcats. You can feel it as soon as he starts talking about his favorite moments from the 2014 UC basketball season.
With the official title of Manager of New Media and Broadcasting , Gelehrter is the "Television voice of the Bearcats," host of "Bearcats Sports Weekly," and is the play-by-play voice for men's and women's basketball games broadcast on FOX Sports Ohio. His office on campus is former retail space that he's turned into a video studio.
Not a bad gig. Here's to next season, Tommy G.
