East Carolina ready to challenge No. 12 Bearcats' defense

The phrase "winning ugly" is a matter of perception. At the University of Cincinnati, it's often the Bearcats' preferred and most effective style of play.

Going into the season, head coach Mick Cronin figured to have a good defensive team, considering its depth and experience. On Tuesday, the 12th-ranked Bearcats scored just 49 points at Central Florida and still won by 11.

"They swarm you," said UCF head coach Johnny Dawkins. "They're athletic, they make plays and they're either deflecting balls or changing your shot. That's a really good defensive team."
