It was a bit of a slugfest throughout and the surprise of the day was Josh Fortune but the Friars fell on the road at Xavier. Cotton wasn’t able to get much going today and there were scoring droughts by both teams. Some key turnovers and empty possessions by PC did them in at the end. This wasn’t a must win game but it was pretty close. I believed they needed to go at least 1-1 on this road trip so Monday in DC not becomes a big game.
Final: Providence 53 Xavier 59
