Not 1, Not 2, Not 3, Not 4, Not 5, Not 6, Not 7….but 8!!!  Make it 8 wins in a row for the Providence Friars against the Georgetown Hoyas.  The Hoyas might just be my second favorite team in the Big East if they keep letting us use them as a doormat.

It may be a different coach with Patrick Ewing at the helm, but the results are the same.  The Friars had 4 players in double-figures and were money all day from deep, going 10-19 from three point range en route to a much needed win in a game that the Friars couldn’t lose to keep their strive for 5 straight NCAA Tournaments in tact.

Game Notes:

  • Both Alpha Diallo and Kyron Cartwright finished 1 assist short of a double-double.
  • Kyron Cartright finished with 16 points, 9 assists, and just 1 turnover.
  • Alpha Diallo finished with 14 points, 9 assists, and just 1 turnover.
  • I’d say that’s a pretty great combo of 18 assists and 2 turnovers.  Let’s see what Coach had to say about all the assists.
  • Rodney Bullock was money all game, scoring a team-high 19 points and grabbing a team-high 8 rebounds.  Bullock connected on 5 three-pointers and was on-point with his trailing bombs all game long.
  • Nate Watson looked fantastic in his return home to the DMV area.  Watson had 12 points, 3 rebounds, 3 blocks, 2 steals, and an assist and gave a preview of they player that he’s going to be going forward for the Friars.
  • His pops had a nice tweet about his return before the game.
  • Jessie Govan continues to look like the best player on the planet when he plays the Friars.  Govan notched a double-double with a game-high 20 points and 11 rebounds.
  • Or maybe Marcus Derrickson looks like the best player on the planet.  He finished with a double-double including 11 points and 15 rebounds.
  • Let’s check out their last couple of games against PC:
    • Govan – 2/24/18 @ Georgetown – 8/15, 20 points, 11 rebounds
    • Derrickson – 2/24/18 @ Georgetown – 5/16, 11 points, 15 rebounds
    • Govan – 2/6/18 @ Providence – 11/18, 27 points, 7 rebounds
    •  Derrickson – 2/6/18 @ Providence – 3/10, 9 points, 9 rebounds
  • They’ll both be back next year as the twin towers.
  • Providence just seems to struggle against big guys with agility and get smashed on the boards especially.
  • Awesome pic of some All-Time Providence College greats.
