ST. THOMAS, U.S.V.I. -- The Providence College Friars were defeated in the championship game of the Paradise Jam by the Maryland Terrapins, 56-52, on Monday, November 25. It was the Friars' first loss of the season as the team fell to 6-1.
Providence came out slow in the first half and sputtered on offense, which allowed Maryland to enter halftime with a 33-21 lead.
In the second half, the Friar offense fed off its strong defense and began to dig out of a 19-point deficit (44-25) with 12:49 left in the game. With 1:31 left in the game, senior Bryce Cotton (Tucson, Ariz.) hit two free throws to get the Friars within two points ((51-49). However, tournament MVP Dez Wells converted on a jumper the lead back to four points. The Friars were not able to close out the deficit and Maryland hung on for the 56-52 win.
Dez Wells and Evan Smotrycz each added 13 points to lead Maryland.
Harris was named to the All-Tournament.
The Friars will return to action on Friday, November 29 versus Fairfield at 12:30 p.m. at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.
