Providence, RI (Sports Network) - Kadeem Batts scored 25 points and pulled down nine rebounds and Bryce Cotton added 11 points -- all of which came in the second half -- to help Providence take down No. 16 Cincinnati, 54-50, Wednesday at Dunkin Donuts Center.

Vincent Council scored six points and dished out eight assists and Lee Goldsbrough contributed six points and four boards for the Friars (12-11, 4-7 Big East), who have won two straight following a three-game skid and ended a six-game losing streak versus ranked foes.

Sean Kilpatrick scored 13 points and JaQuon poured in 12 and 10 rebounds for the Bearcats (18-5, 6-4), who had a chance to tie the game with under 10 seconds remaining -- down two points -- before Kilpatrick lost the handle of the ball and it scooted across halfcourt for a backcourt violation. Shaquille Thomas, Cashmere Wright and Cheikh Mbodj each scored just six points in the loss.
