Cincinnati received unfortunate news yesterday that head basketball coach Mick Cronin would miss the remainder of the season as he deals with an unruptured brain aneurysm that was discovered in mid-December.

Even if the fiery Bearcats coach won't be on the sideline, his visage will not be lacking at Fifth-Third Arena, at least not for today's game against SMU. Student fan group "RallyCats" have printed off a number of Cronin faces for the student section.

This is a nice way to honor Cronin as he works to get back to the sideline by next year. The Bearcats trail the Mustangs 11-9 midway through the first half.
