The Versatile Dutchman – Matt Haarms


They were on the set of the Big Ten Network during Big Ten Media Day. Coach Painter was asked what Matt Haarms, a 7-foot, 3-inch center, looks like shooting a 3-pointer. Taken aback by the question, Carsen Edwards interrupted quickly with the response “A Pro”. The tools and the desire is there. He’s gained 25 pounds of muscle since his arrival 20 months ago. He’s worked on his shot tirelessly. He ran a 5-minute, 25-second mile in the preseason. He blocked a shot every 10 minutes he was on the floor as a freshman. The time is now for Matt Haarms after playing behind Isaac Haas. He is Purdue’s next great 7-footer and his time has come.

Bearcats Suffer 86-67 Exhibition Loss at Carleton

OTTAWA, Ontario – Playing in the home gymnasium of one of the top collegiate teams in Canada, the University of Cincinnati men’s basketball team dropped an 86-67 exhibition contest Monday at Carleton.


Winners of 13 of the last 16 Canadian University championships, Carleton picked apart the Bearcats defense both in the paint and behind the three-point line. The Ravens finished with 38 points inside and connected on 10 three-pointers.


“Tonight we got beat by a veteran team that had tremendous offensive execution,” UC head coach Mick Cronin said. “The fact that we hadn’t worked on defense this summer really showed tonight. I’m still very disappointed with our veteran players and their defensive effort.


“We ran into a team that makes every open shot and exploits every mistake you make defensively,” Cronin added. “That’s what you want to play against because then you can show that on film and it allows you a starting point of reality.”


UC junior guard Jarron Cumberland (Wilmington, Ohio/Wilmington High School) led the Bearcats offensively with 12 points to go with three steals. Sophomore guard Keith Williams (Brooklyn, N.Y./Bishop Loughlin Memorial) scored in double figures for the second consecutive exhibition contest, finishing with 10 points to go with four rebounds and two assists. Senior guard Cane Broome (East Hartford, Conn./Sacred Heart) added 10 points.


A trio of Ravens players did a vast bulk of the damage to the Bearcats. Forward Eddie Ekiyor created space inside and was often the beneficiary of solid passing in and around the paint finishing with a game-high 26 points, shooting 13 of 15 from the floor.


Carleton guard Munis Tutu hurt the Bearcats outside, hitting a game-high five three-pointers and contributing 21 points with five assists. While Ravens guard TJ Lall posted a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds.


Playing under FIBA rules with a 24-second shot clock and four 10-minute quarters, the game was tied at 20-20 after 10 minutes.


The Ravens strung together six baskets inside along with a three-pointer as part of a 16-5 run over the final 6:16 of the second quarter to own a 41-29 halftime lead. A Cumberland driving layup with two seconds before intermission ended a UC scoring drought of five and a half minutes.


The Bearcats came out of the locker room showing more intensity early in the third quarter, trimming the deficit to 51-41 on a fastbreak layup by Williams with 5:07 left. But the Ravens got hot beyond the arc, hitting four of their seven second-half threes in the third frame.


UC couldn’t mount a comeback in the final quarter, cutting the deficit to as few as 13 at 73-60 on a free throw by Rashawn Fredericks (St. Croix, Virgin Islands/Motlow State CC) with 4:10 left.


“As a coach, that’s what you are looking for with a trip like this,” Cronin said. “You get a starting point of reality for your team for you as a coaching staff of where you are at and what you need to build on what you need to become to be a winning team. That’s what we talked about after the game and that’s what we gotta get to work on.


“But you really don’t know that until you lose, until you play against somebody that plays really well against you. They hit a lot of tough shots against us.”


The Bearcats wrap up their three-game tour of Canada on Tuesday when they travel to McGill for a 7 p.m. ET contest. The game will not be broadcasted or streamed. Follow the Bearcats on Twitter (@GoBearcatsMBB) for updates. A final recap and highlights will be available on


UC opened its tour of Canada with an 85-57 win over Ottawa on Sunday in Montreal, Quebec.

Jarron Cumberland: 12 points, 3 steals

Trevon Scott: 8 points, 3 rebounds
