GAME RECAP

The Fighting Ron Hunter’s (Georgia State) are back in the NCAA tournament, and we are all better for it. Georgia State is always a treat to watch in the tourney. Today was no different. D’Marcus Simonds, who averages 21.1 ppg and 4.5 apg for Georgia State, scored their first 16 points.

But Cincinnati battled back, as a wounded animal is ever-dangerous. Cincinnati swarmed the offensive glass and ramped up the defense on D’Marcus Simonds, only allowing him to score eight more points for the remainder of the game, while Jarron Cumberland dropped 16 for Cincinnati to lead the Bearcats to a 35-30 halftime lead.

Cincinnati’s lead quickly grew to ten in the second half before Georgia State found their offense, taking a 45-44 lead over Cincinnati. Cincinnati’s physicality proved too much for Georgia State, as the Bearcats, who trailed 47-46, used a 17-2 run to take a 63-49 lead with two minutes to play, Cincinnati held on to win 68-53.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Jarron Cumberland dominated the game for Cincinnati, start to finish. Cumberland scored 16 points in the first half, but he didn’t stop there. Jarron finished the game with 27 points and 11 rebounds as Georgia State could never find an answer for him.

Feel free to hit me up with your hot takes or argue about mine. Javier Baez and Bryce Harper both being on the Cubs would be great for Major League Baseball. Real Madrid are the greatest of all time. Softball is an underrated sport.
