Providence vs. Georgetown final score: Cartwright flirts with triple-double in Friars’ rout of Hoyas

The junior point guard was just one rebound away.

Providence Friars point guard Kyron Cartwright did his best Kris Dunn impression, coming dangerously close to a triple-double in the Friars’ 74-56 victory over Georgetown to wrap up the Martin Luther King Marathon.

Cartwright, who scored 16 points, dished out 11 assists, and grabbed nine rebounds, continued his season-long strong play in the victory, while Rodney Bullock led the Friars in scoring with 22 points. Jalen Lindsey and Emmitt Holt chipped in 14 and 11, respectively.

For the Hoyas, it was the same story as usual. Rodney Pryor and LJ Peak performed well offensively, everyone else struggled, and the team was poor on defense. The Hoyas were also held to a .320 FG% and turned the ball over 15 times to Providence’s nine.

One can only watch the same things happen so many times before getting to a point where a change is necessary, and it feels like Georgetown is inching ever closer to that point.

Providence (13-7, 3-4) will head to Philadelphia to take on #1 Villanova at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday, while Georgetown (10-9, 1-5) will head to Cincinnati to face #22 Xavier.
