    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Sharaud Curry made a foul shot with 14.2 seconds left to give Providence a 71-70 comeback win over Cincinnati on Tuesday night.

    Curry, who had a game-high 24 points, made 8 of 13 shots overall and 5 of 8 three-point attempts. Friars center Herbert Hill, who had 16 points and 11 rebounds, forced a miss by Cincinnati's John Willamson in the final second to preserve the win.

    Cincinnati had taken its biggest lead, 70-62, at 1:44 on a putback by Cedric McGowan. The Bearcats then missed the first of two straight opportunities at the foul line and Curry scored all nine Friar points in the remaining time, including consecutive 3-pointers.

    Cincinnati (10-13, 1-8 Big East), which suffered its fifth loss in a row, was led by Williamson with 15 points.

    Cincinnati scored 26 points off 16 Providence turnovers and shut down the Friars' 3-point shooting for much of the second half.

    Providence (15-7, 5-4 BE) made 7 of its first 11 3-point attempts including two each by Efejuku, McDermott and Curry in building a 25-19 lead. Williamson scored nine by intermission to tie the score at 38.
