First of all, no live blog tonight…I had to run out at the last minute but followed the score on my trusty update-every-10-minutes stupid ESPN.com through my phone.
Final Score: 111-87
It shouldn’t even have been as close as that…the Friars led by 34 late in the game until they decided to let Sacred Heart score some pity points.
Just a quick recap…the Friars absolutely destroyed Sacred Heart tonight thanks to the season debut of the PROVIDENCE FRIAR THREE-POINT SHOW. It’s good to see you again. It’s been too long.
Specificially, Marshon Brooks does it again — this time outdoing his previous career night which occurred….oh… a mere 48 HOURS ago. Marshon poured in 30 points (24 in the first half) on 11-15 shooting, nailing 5 of 8 from super downtown. Oh and he had 5 steals. IN 23 MINUTES. I think he spent the other 17 minutes operating the scoreboard and announcing the game. It was the first time a Friar scored over 30 since Randall Hanke against Northeastern in 2005.
As Joe Hasset put it, Brooks was “HOT AS A PISTOL”
Curry also had his best game of the season to date, scoring 15 points and hitting 3/4 from 3-point land. He also had 8 assists.
McDermott was the leader of the glass, bringing down 13 boards while also chipping in 12 points.
More to come later tonight.
