Here are the top moments from an action-packed day on the hardwood!
Seton Hall at No. 20 Providence
Shaheen Holloway’s brand of basketball is hard-nosed. That was evident on this play, as Seton Hall scrapped for the offensive board following a bricked shot, before Tyrese Samuel slammed in a resounding jam.
Crisp ball movement
The Friars are something to watch in transition, and although Seton Hall captured the early lead, Providence stuck around with pretty plays like this one.
Damage down low
Providence got within one midway through the first half courtesy of a tough finish inside from Ed Croswell.
As the first half wound down, the Hall began to kick things into high gear offensively, closing out on a 17-2 run. This floater from Dre Davis was two of several points in the paint for Seton Hall. The Pirates led 44-25 after 20 minutes.
The Friars found new life in the second half, closing the gap with a 16-5 run to ignite life into the home crowd.
No. 14 Connecticut at Villanova
Big East Tournament: No. 1 UConn vs. No. 9 Georgetown (W)
Sharpshooter Azzi Fudd returned to the lineup for UConn after missing the majority of the season with a knee injury.
Get off me!
Hungary’s Dorka Juhász keyed inside to capture some early momentum for the Huskies, collecting an and-1 opportunity with this strong layup.
Makin’ it look easy
It was all Aaliyah Edwards for the Huskies in the game’s early onsets, as she came up big with a number of big lay-ins to stretch UConn’s advantage.
