PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) Alpha Diallo scored a career-best 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as Providence beat Creighton 85-71 on Saturday.

The Friars jumped to an 18-7 start and never trailed on their way to a 36-33 lead at intermission.

Creighton went ahead 39-38 on a 3-point play by Marcus Foster early in the second half but Jaylen Lindsey sank a 3-pointer after that to give the Friars a 41-39 edge with 17:03 to play and they led the rest of the way. The Bluejays (15-5, 5-3) cut it to 69-65 with 4:04 remaining but could not get closer.
