Bryce Cotton (Tucson, Ariz.) scored a game-high 20 points on 7-of-18 shooting. It was the 14th time this season that Cotton scored 20 or more points in a game. The loss halts the Friars' (15-6, 5-3 BIG EAST) attempt to win their sixth consecutive BIG EAST game.
With 17:28 left in the game the Friars trailed 37-18 but put together a 16-0 run to pull within three (37-34) of the Golden Eagles. Providence also narrowed the deficit to four points (49-44) at the 5:45 mark with a jumper from junior LaDontae Henton (Lansing, Mich.). This was the closest the Friars would get as Marquette maintained its lead en route to the victory. The Friars improved to 47-percent shooting in the second half on 14-of-30 from the floor.
Providence scored a season-low 14 points in the first half on 5-of-28 shooting from the floor (18-percent). Marquette (12-9, 4-4 BIG EAST) shot 10-of-25 from the field (40-percent) to grab a 31-14 lead into the break. Cotton led all players at the half with nine points.
Henton added 18 points, which were all scored in the second half. Sophomore Tyler Harris (Dix Hills, N.Y.) had a game-high 11 rebounds. The Friars' 58-percent (10-of-17) from the free throw line was their lowest percentage of the year.
Davante Gardner led Marquette with 14 points while coming off of the bench.
The Friars will return to action when they play at DePaul on Saturday, February 1 at 1:00 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Net.
