Cincinnati out to expose Oklahoma State’s road woes

Cincinnati won 12 of its first 14 home games before dropping its last two contests in front of its fans.The Bearcats (16-9, 5-7 Big 12) bid to end that skid and add to Oklahoma State’s ever-growing road woes on Wednesday when the teams reconvene in Cincinnati.The Bearcats countered a pair of close defeats to ranked teams with a narrow 76-74 victory at UCF on Saturday.Dan Skillings Jr. collected 15 points and eight rebounds and Aziz Bandaogo had 13 and eight, respectively for Cincinnati. Skillings averages a team-best 12.3 points per game, while his 6.2 boards trail only Bandaogo (7.9) and Viktor Lakhin (6.4).”Anytime you can win in this league (you take it), it’s that difficult of a league,” Cincinnati coach Wes Miller said. “If you can win on the road, I think there’s an extra edge to that.”Oklahoma State (11-14, 3-9) wouldn’t know how that feels this season. The Cowboys are saddled with an 0-7 record away from home, although they did manage to pull an upset at home on Saturday with a 93-83 victory over then-No. 19 BYU.
