Going home sweet for some Bearcats
By Michael Perry
The Cincinnati Enquirer
HOUSTON UC coach Bob Huggins was very aware of all the friends and family members in the stands Saturday, cheering for the Bearcats who are from Texas.
They came from Carrollton (Jason Maxiell), Port Arthur (Immanuel McElroy), Corpus Christi (Jamaal Lucas) and, of course, Houston (Field Williams).
So, with the game well in hand, Huggins made sure those players were on the court near the end (Maxiell fouled out with 1:32 left).
I think when you've got the game won, you're supposed to do that, Huggins said.
UC senior Steve Logan had just four points at halftime, but didn't come out forcing anything in the second half. He finished with 16 points, half of which came from the foul line.
Logan finished 4-of-10 from the field and for just the second time this season did not have a 3-pointer.
My legs are tired, said Houston's Dominic Smith, who guarded Logan most of the game.
Logan is averaging 17 points and shooting .373 from the field over the past four games. He did have five assists and just one turnover Saturday.
I didn't need to score, he said. We have lots of guys who can score.
Some of the UC players and coaches planned to attend Saturday night's Houston-Denver NBA game to see former Bearcats Nick Van Exel and Kenny Satterfield, who play for the Nuggets.
M.I.A.: Junior guard Taron Barker missed Saturday's game because of a death in his family. He returned to Racine, Wis., and did not make the trip to Houston. Huggins said Barker is expected back in Cincinnati today.
Donald Little recorded his second double-double of the season (10 points, 10 rebounds) and also collected two blocks to pass George Wilson and move into third place on UC's all-time list (122). ... UC's last three opponents were a collective 8-of-58 (.138) from 3-point range. ... Jamaal Davis tied his season-high with 15 points; he had averaged just 4.7 points over the previous three games.
UC plays host to DePaul at 9 p.m. Wednesday at Shoemaker Center (ESPN2).
