- Ben Bentil managed only 3 points and 6 rebounds before fouling out with 9:40 left in the second half. He played 26 minutes with most of those coming in the first half.
- Providence battled with Villanova despite being down the Big East leading scorer and kept the score tight down the stretch.
- Rodney Bullock dealt with a bit of first half foul trouble, but was Providence’s best offensive weapon, finishing with 18 points.
- Kris Dunn had a solid game but was a little gun shy shooting jump shots. He finished with 9 points and 6 assists and was just 1/8 from the field.
- Kyron Cartwright was the only other Friar in double figures with 14 points.
- The Friars will now await Selection Sunday to see where they will be heading for the First Round of the NCAA Tournament.
