The Cincinnati Bearcats lost a heartbreaker to Saint Joseph’s in the Round of 64 of the 2016 NCAA Tournament, but they are looking to be one of the better teams in both the AAC and the country for the next few seasons.
And now, Cincy will get some big help from transfer Cane Broome, who announced his commitment Monday morning.
Broome took to Twitter to confirm his transfer and he should be ready to go for the Bearcats for the 2017-18 season. He will come to the team as a junior.

Cane Broome was named the Northeast Conference Player of the Year as a sophomore at Sacred Heart. He led the Pioneers in scoring, notching 23.1 points per game, which was good enough to rank him eighth nationally.
This a huge win for Cincinnati as they struggled to get good production from their back court during the 2015-16 season. Now, they will turn their attention towards recruiting and the upcoming season in the fall.
Broome will have two years of eligibility left starting next November.
