Senior Night Came Early for Providence

He finished with a team high 25 points on 9-14 from the field, 1-1 from three, and made 6-7 at the free throw line. In a second half in which only fellow senior Luwane Pipkins made more than one field goal for the Friars (and he hit two), Diallo attacked the rim and posted up on his way to 7-10 shooting from the floor.

Pipkins continued one of the greatest in-season turnarounds in Providence history, scoring 23 points, including five in the final 70 seconds. Pipkins blew the roof of the Dunkin Donuts Center twice in the closing minute, knocking down a 3-pointer late in the shot clock to push PC’s advantage to four, and then rolling in a floater to seal the win 30 seconds later.
