--Providence buckled down on defense against the struggling Scarlet Knights. The Friars had 10 steals and forced 16 Scarlet Knight turnovers, turning them into 19 points.
--The Friars also did a nice job shutting down the 3-point line. Rutgers went 4-for-18 from beyond the arc in the game, and 0-for-9 in the first half.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"With our team coming off of an upset over Pittsburgh, you never know how your team is going to react. We really came out of the games well and realized that there was an opportunity for us to finish in the top half of the division. We didn't execute the way that I would have liked later on in the second half, but fortunately we had enough of a cushion that we were able to hold on at the end." -- Keno Davis after the victory over Rutgers.
