UC leads 43-25 in the opening seconds. Cashmere Wright trying out a new over the head pass.
YUCK!! Yancy Gates just dunked a ball and a human. That was nasty.

Cash tried to find Dion Dixon for an alley-oop. It was swatted free. It has become clear UC guards (Cash/Dion) want to bring something extra special. They have noticed this game is ripe for flashy plays.
UC leads 48-27 with 16:55 remaining.

First TV timeout and anyone previously curious about the outcome ceases to be.
UC leads 49-27. Blowout will continue. The cats are bringing Jax in after the break.

Yancy Gates at the free throw line, attempting to chase a season high of 18 points. He now has 14 points with 14:50 left.
UC leads 52-30.

Cash and Dion need to be pulled. The two guards are playing with huge egos right now. It truthfully looks like they think they are Harlem Globetrotters.
It is fine to enjoy pounding a team, but don't stuff it in their face.
UC leads 54-37.

UC now running with Jeremiah Davis, Dion Dixon, Jermaine Sanders, Sean Kilpatrick, and Cheikh Mbodj. Cash to return after TV timeout.
Bearcats lead 56-41 with 11:55 left.

After a few mishandled offensive possessions and lazy defense Providence is creeping back into the game. UC leads 56-45 but this game feels like Presbyterian, Jacksonville State, and other games where the Cats got a lead too early.
For some reason this team loses composure after they bury a team. They play like they downtrodden team will melt away.

After missing two shorties, Sean Kilpatrick stole another outlet pass. I count three of those for SK. Cash followed up with a slippery layup.
UC shooting 46% from the field.
UC leads 60-48 with 9:00 to play.

I got Yancy for four dunks. It might be five. He is having his best offensive game in 2012.
UC leads 62-50.

While Yancy Gates chases his season-high one player already hit it. Vincent Council of Providence is up to 28 points, one shy of a career high. The guard continues to fight despite the deficit.
UC leads 64-50 with 7:04 remaining.

A final recruiting note before we wrap this game... UC is recruiting a local LB for the Class of 2013. From Loveland, Ohio Zach Higginbotham enjoys the hometown school. The Bearcat Coaching Staff let Higginbotham know that they are recruiting him as a FB though.
"They are recruiting me as fullback and saying they will put in sets to use me," said Higginbotham. "They are backloaded at linebacker and would just use me at fullback."
Higginbotham has been to Purdue, Louisville, Northwestern, Toledo, and Cincinnati. He might attend UC Junior Day Saturday.
Don't forget UC will host their largest Junior Day Saturday. I am compiling a list of attendees on the premium board. After the game I will have all names.
Uc leads 66-59 with 3:50 and the natives are restless. A lot of groans. A lot of moans.

We hit the final TV timeout with a seven point disparity.
UC will play with Cash, Dion, Cheikh Mbodj, Sean Kilpatrick, and JaQuon Parker.
Providence has Cotton, Coleman, Henton, Giplaye, and Council on the floor.

Cincinnati has lost all offensive flow. It is mind-boggling how this happens.
Posted on 2/15 10:48 PM | IP: 126.96.36.199
Thanks to late-game energy of JaQuon Parker Cincinnati will hold on to the win they earned long ago.
It almost faded away, but Parker hauled down some nice defensive rebounds late. He also caught a Kilpatrick air ball. Then put it back in. Oh, and Park hit two free throws in final minutes.
UC leads 72-61 with 1:30 left.

13-1 Syracuse 10-3 Marquette 10-3 Notre Dame 9-4 Georgetown 9-4 South Florida 8-5 Cincinnati 8-5 Louisville 7-7 Seton Hall

Five games left in the regular season. Cincinnati will play three TOP HALF teams, One MID PACK, and one BOTTOM THIRD.
I think their toughest test will be Marquette, but frankly all five could be losses OR all five could be wins. Villanova is not a walk-over for Cincinnati as we saw earlier. South Florida has shocked me with nine conference wins. That game could challenge UC.
Marquette is a rematch that UC wants badly. I don't think they will capture the win though. The Cats also have Seton Hall/Louisville within the next week. At home.
