Shots fired! Shots fired!
Following his team’s 78-69 home win this afternoon, Providence head coach Ed Cooley had a few things to say about your University of Kentucky Wildcats, the Friars’ next opponent.
“Everybody is asking me about Kentucky,” Cooley said. “It’s a game. Congratulations, they’re good. They have all these great players. You know what? We have some great players, too. I do not want anybody to look at my team as if we are some step-child hoping to get lucky.” Cooley said. “We’re going to go down there and we’re going to be confident, passionate and we’re going to play with a lot of pride. I don’t give a damn about Kentucky.”
“We play high-profile programs every day in the Big East,” he added. “That keeps coming back. Kentucky. It’s another game. The Big East is the best basketball conference in the country. We’re going to play teams like that every single day.”
