The American
The Bearcats share the American Conference regular season championship with Louisville. The Cardinals beat Connecticut. Both teams finished 15-3. UC won a post game coin flip to determine the top seed. Video of coin flip. UC will play Thursday at 7pm vs the winner of #8 UCF vs #9 Temple. If UC wins, they Friday night at 9pm, and could face Memphis. The Tigers are hosting the tournament and play in the #4 vs #5 game. 
Mick did not have an option of taking the #1 or #2 seed, upon winning the coin flip. UC was heads, UL was tails. Whichever side was face up was the #1 seed. Not only could the #1 seed play host Memphis, they would play the late semi-final game Friday night (9pm), and face a 6pm championship game Saturday.
