Tigers Beat Friars

You get the feeling John Calipari has a Tiger by the tail? I mean literally. They're so explosive even Calipari himself says this is the most skilled team he's ever had. The 7th ranked Tigers were off all week to prepare for Providence, and it turns into another hard fought road game like Cincinnati.

But the Tigers come away with a 97-89 win. Rodney Carney was held scoreless at Cincy, but he bounces back with 17 off the bench. Still the Tigers clung to a 4 point lead 74-70 late. Donnie McGrath leading the Friars with 28 points. But Darius Washington makes some big plays down the stretch to ensure victory, and leads the Tigers with 20.

The Tigers win 97-89, improving to 7-1. Ole Miss is next on Saturday.
