LOOKING AT THE BEARCATS:

Cincinnati sports a 9-3 overall record with Tuesday’s tilt marking the Bearcats’ first non-tournament match of the season. UC is 1-2 in away matches on the year. The Bearcats returned nine of 13 letterwinners from a 13-19 campaign a year ago while also bringing back four starters plus their libero.
In the all-time series between WKU and Cincinnati, UC owns a 17-6 advantage. The lone meeting between the sides since both have joined their current conferences took place in 2016 when WKU took down the Bearcats in a three-set sweep from The Hill.
