Photos: Bearcats Defeat Providence

Photos from the Bearcats victory over Big East foe Providence on Friday night at Fifth Third Arena.

UC Dance Team gets the crowd into the spirt and ready for a Bearcats victory.  But while fans are use to the timeout performances, it was the national champions halftime performace that had the crowd really excited.

Sharaud Curry tired to match Bearcats
"Super Freshman" Devan Downey.  Curry would score 12 pts. but miss the key shot and see Downey score 16 pts.

Senior Eric Hicks would struggle on the offensive side of the ball, but his total effort showed the way for his Bearcat teammates to follow. 

Bearcat fans have fallen and want to see Andy Kennedy be hired fulltime as the Bearcats Head Coach.  Support was so good, fans waited in the stands to show the coach support during his post-game radio show

Downey would score 16, but he also played some defense and picked up 4 steals and a block on the night.  But his biggest part of the night was still to come as he went to the line to seal the victory.

Friars Head Coach Tim Welsh had his issues with the officials just like Bearcat fans did on the night.  I have to agree with Coach Welsh, the refs did a terrible job on the night and made way too many bad calls against the Bearcats.

Eric Hicks goes up to block a shot or at least change the direction of it.  On the night he would block 4 shots and pull down 9 boards in the Bearcats victory.

Connor Barwin is not only a fan favorite, he also earned his first program cover as a member of the Basketball team and not the football team.  But the "true" freshman is keeping his football duties in tack by being at the teams 6:00 a.m. winter workout on Friday morning.

Downey takes an outside "J" against Providence on Friday night in Fifth Third Arena.

Just look at the Warrior how battles men of all sizes in the Big East Conference.  The blood is not for show, but from the action on the floor.

Providence guard Sharaud Curry goes the length of the court looking to tie the game.  Did it fall?  NO!!! Bearcats Win!!!!
