It wasn't exactly the coach's toughest victory as his team ran up and down the court on BU from start to finish. UC amassed a 40-point lead over the Terriers on an acrobatic slam-dunk by Immanuel McElroy midway through the second half.
Huggins only knock on his team's play was their rebounding, though UC even won that struggle, 43-38. Here, Immanuel McElroy blocks a shot by Boston's Chaz Carr.
Senior guard Steve Logan led the Cats with 27 points and used the first half to demonstrate his All American credentials. Logan poured in 23 in the first 20 minutes, sinking nine out of 12, including four 3's, often when closely guarded.
"He is tough for anybody to figure out how to stop," said Boston Coach Dennis Wolff. "It is disheartening when you try to figure out what to do. Their physicalness and ability to guard is what will keep them alive in this tournament."
Huggins was most impressed by the Bearcat's offense which also left Donald Little relaxed and all smiles after the Friday night game. "We have shot the ball really well in practice the last three days," said Huggins. "I thought we really had live legs."
Asked if he intended to celebrate his 500th win, he replied, "This time of year, when it is one and out, I'm just trying to concentrate on the next game."
