- Providence was looking for their first road win this season on Monday night against a Georgetown team they had beaten just 12 days prior. The Friars also were riding a 5-game winning streak against Georgetown.
- Kyron Cartwright was sensational and controlled the game all night long. Cartwright was on triple-double watch early in this one as he finished the first half with 10 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds. He finished the game with 16 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds against just 2 turnovers. This is his second-career double-double. It’s his 4th game this season and 5th in his career with 10 or more assists.
- Rodney Bullock had another good game to make that 3 good scoring games in a row after managing just 6 points against Creighton on January 7th. Bullock finished with 22 points on 9/18 shooting. Bullock is now averaging 20.7 points/game in Providence’s last 3 games.
- Emmitt Holt was also in double figures with 11 points on 4/5 shooting. Holt battled foul trouble for the second straight game but was still productive in his time on the floor. He ultimately fouled out with just under 4 minutes to go in this one.
- Kalif Young came off the bench to provide good minutes and for the second straight game he battled down low against a strong frontline. Young more than held his own against Georgetown’s bigger and more experienced front court players like Bradley Hayes, Jessie Govan and Marcus Derrickson. He finished the game with 2 points and 8 rebounds.
- Jalen Lindsey and Alpha Diallo did a good job containing Rodney Pryor who made some jump shots early but was being guarded very tightly. Lindsey finished with 14 points on 4/9 shooting, including 4/7 from downtown. Diallo dropped scored just 1 point but played well overall in his 3rd straight start and added 2 rebounds.
- Pryor scored 12 points on just 5/12 from the field. Georgetown was led by L.J. Peak who finished with 13 points. The Hoyas shot 32.7% from the field, including 21.7% from beyond the arc.
- Providence shot 46.4% from the field, including 42.9% from 3-point range. The Friars have now shot 46.2% in their 3 Big East wins against just 39.5% in their 4 losses in league play.
- 2018 SG Noah Locke of McDonogh HS and Boo Williams was in attendance for this game. Locke got offered by the Friars in late June 2016 and the guard attended Elite Camp and Late Night Madness in Providence. Locke is ranked 131st by 247Sports’ composite national ranking. He also has interest from Georgetown.
- The Friars next take on Villanova at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, January 21st at 12:00pm EST. The game will be televised on FOX.
