  • Stephens: ‘Cats show they can win ugly

    LEXINGTON – Providence College displayed a game plan Sunday against No. 1 Kentucky that was straight out of its old-school Big East Conference roots.

    The Friars shortened the game with long offensive possessions and kept UK out of an offensive rhythm by effectively playing both man and zone defenses.

    The more-talented Wildcats would’ve preferred to get up-and-down, turning blocks and steals into fast breaks. Instead they had to play at the knock-down, drag-out pace Providence dictated.

    UK ended up whipping the Friars at their own game.
