He also grabbed 5 rebounds in 31 minutes. Bullock finished the night with 18 points on 6/13 shooting, including 3/5 from beyond the arc.
  • Kyron Cartwright played under control, for the most part, and led Providence with 12 assists. He also added 9 points and 4 rebounds.
  • Ryan Fazekas started for Providence but it took him awhile to get a look from the field. He ended the night with 11 points and shot 3/6 from downtown.
  • Jalen Lindsey got off to a hot start from beyond the arc sinking his first two attempts. Lindsey finished with 6 points in 27 minutes of action.
  • Isaiah Jackson added 6 rebounds off the bench in 16 minutes in his Providence debut after sitting out last season as a transfer.
  • The freshmen Friars didn’t show signs up any real nerves with Kalif Young providing some life to the Dunk crowd by being active down low. Maliek White played fearless and ran alongside Cartwright for some time. Alpha Diallo continues to look poised with the ball in his hands and even initiated the offense a few times.
  • Vermont was led by Payton Henson with 21 points on 9/17 shooting. He also tied with freshman Anthony Lamb with 6 rebounds a piece for the Catamounts.
  • Providence assisted on 16 of their 27 made field goals, good for an assist rate of 59.25%. That rate would have been good for 38th nationally last season, per Kenpom.com.
  • Providence is now 40-1 in non-conference games at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center under Ed Cooley.
  • The Friars return to action on Thursday, November 17th against Ohio State at Value City Arena in Columbus at 7:00pm EST. The game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
