The men (17-12, 10-7 AAC) take on Temple (21-9, 12-5 AAC) in Philadalphia, and the women (29-1, 18-0 AAC) take on Cincinnati (8-22, 4-14 AAC) in the AAC quarterfinals.

Well now that our pipe dream of having a chance at an at-large bid is over, we can kick back and try to enjoy some AAC basketball.

Basically, we are looking for any semblance of momentum heading into the conference tournament next weekend, and get a chance at revenge from a pretty annoying loss earlier in the season.

(These are only the good highlights-don't worry)

It's already been talked about relentlessly, but eyes will be on Rodney Purvis to put the basketball in the hoop after scoring just three points in the loss to Memphis on senior night :(. We are 5-9 when Purvis scores in single digits and that is not good. A good performance today could go a long way for his confidence, and we need all the confidence we can get heading into Hartford.

Women

This game should be a walk in the park as the Huskies beat the Bearcats twice this season by a combined 125 points. After sweeping the AAC postseason awards. The squad looks to continue the good times today.

Join in the discussion, talk about Phil Nolan's sneaky improvement, vent a little bit, talk about how good Ryan Boatright is, heck, maybe you'll even learn something.

Let's get a sweep today.

GO HUSKIES!
