  • Providence got off to a sluggish start in this game with Wagner jumping out to a 10-4 lead in the game’s first few minutes.

  • Jalen Lindsey led all scorers with 16 points in a game that saw very balanced scoring. Emmitt Holt added 11 points, Alpha Diallo scored a career-high 9 points, Rodney Bullock scored 8 points. Providence played all 13 players today.
  • The Friars held Wagner to just 33% shooting, including 25% from beyond the arc. The Seahawks did continue to be a good offensive rebounding team with 20 grabs of their own misses, but the Friars were just too much for Wagner. Providence shot 47% from the field, including 39% from 3-point range. They also shot 72% at the free throw line.
  • Providence assisted on 22 of their 27 field goals. Kyron Cartwright dished out half of those, finishing with 5 points and 11 assists in just 24 minutes.
