PROVIDENCE – It’s onto the next game for the PC Friars.
Trailing 62-61 with 6:09 remaining and with two of their better players saddled in foul trouble, the Friars closed hard to secure a 77-68 win over a determined Robert Morris squad in second-round NIT action Monday. PC’s reward is a “Round of 8” contest at Baylor Wednesday. The winner of that game advances to the Final Four next week at Madison Square Garden.
What’s even more noteworthy is how the Friars responded after Kadeem Batts fouled out with 3:58 left. Up 65-63, PC closed out on a 12-4 run that featured contributions from everyone who was on the floor. A big offensive rebound by Kris Dunn led to two free throws, a sequence that put the Friars up 72-66 with 2:12 left.
LaDontae Henton battled through foul trouble to finish with 21 points with Bryce Cotton collecting 20 points.
