The Providence Friars racked up 10 blocks against Northeastern on Wednesday night, the second time the team has reached 10+ this season (they had 11 versus Morgan State). Bilal Dixon with 5? Not entirely surprising considering he gets almost 3 a game. What was surprising was Vincent Council filling up the stat sheet a-la Geoff McDermott (complete with 5 turnovers!), which included 2 blocks. Actually, Council has had at least one block in all but two games (Wyoming and CCSU), and had 2 against La Salle as well.
In the picture below, it’s not entirely clear if Council is blocking Alwayne Bigby, or if VC got confused and try to dunk the ball using his face as the rim. Either way, I award you no points Mr. Bigby.
