Cincinnati (22-2, 11-0) has a 2 1/2-game lead over Louisville in the AAC standings, and a three game lead over SMU. One of the intriguing things about tonight's match-up is SMU's home record. The Mustangs are a perfect 12-0 on the home hardwood and would like nothing more than to prove they can run with the big dogs of the AAC.
SMU (18-5, 7-3) has already defeated two Top 25 opponents at home this season. Adding the Bearcats to that resume would not only draw them closer to a possible division title, but almost guarantee a March Madness birth, even if they performed poorly in their conference tournament.
The Mustangs have already taken down Connecticut and Memphis at home, but a win tonight would be the biggest by far this season for SMU.
Vegas odds makers have SMU as a 3 point favorite with the over/under number at 124.
