Scouting The Bearcats

Wes Miller is in his first season at Cincinnati following a successful stint at UNC Greensboro highlighted by four Southern Conference regular-season titles and a pair of NCAA tourney bids.

Cincinnati’s roster features nine returning letterwinners and seven first-year players.

The Bearcats who are back include three of UC’s top-four scorers from last season – Jeremiah Davenport (11.7 ppg), David DeJulius (9.1 ppg) and Mika Adams-Woods (8.6 ppg).

The septet of newcomers features six transfers – one each from Clemson, Mississippi State and Wake Forest and a trio UNC Greensboro. Two of the transfers, Hayden Koval from UNCG and Abdul Ado from MSU entered the season ranked No. 1 and No. 3 among active career leaders in blocked shots with 337 and 249 swats, respectively.

There are two familiar faces on the Bearcats’ bench. Assistant coach Chad Dollar and director of operations Jake Thelen served in the same roles for the Bulldogs for the past three seasons.
