#11 Seed: The 2003/04 Cincinnati Bearcats put up some impressive stats on both ends of the court, resulting in a 4th seed placement for the March dance.  The inside/outside offensive play of Jason Maxiell and Field Williams, along with a stout defense, made these Bearcats a dangerous dance match-up.  They were exited out of the 2004 dance by a young upstart Illinois team, a season before the Illini made their own Final Four run.  Cincy coach Bob Huggins summed up the loss best, stating 'they hit alot of shots', with the 5th seeded Illini shooting a blistering 63% from the field in the 92-68 'Round of 32' tourney blowout.
