Kyron Cartwright, Providence Stun No. 3 Villanova

With the NCAA tournament approaching, the Providence Friars added a monstrous victory to their resume Wednesday night against the No. 3 Villanova Wildcats.

Providence exploded for 49 second-half points at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center on the way to a 76-71 Big East victory over Villanova. Kyron Cartwright (17 points, five assists and three steals), Alpha Diallo (14 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals) and Rodney Bullock (14 points and six rebounds) led the way in a balanced Friars attack that saw five different players score in double figures.

Mikal Bridges (19 points and seven rebounds) and Jalen Brunson (14 points and five assists) did what they could for the Wildcats, but it wasn’t enough to earn a win on the road. They also both fouled out—Brunson on his seventh turnover as a charge—and weren’t available on the floor as their team attempted to make a late charge in the final minute.
