PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's basketball team fell to USF, 86-62, in BIG EAST Conference action at Alumni Hall/Mullaney Gymnasium in Providence, R.I. on Tuesday, January 20. Despite a season-high 18 points from Chelsea Marandola (Johnston, R.I.) and a game-high 15 rebounds from Shantee Darrian (Trenton, N.J.), the Bulls' free-flowing offense was too much to contain.

USF took a slim 37-33 advantage into the locker room at halftime, but outscored the Friars by 20 (49-29) in the second half to take the 24-point win.

Five USF players reached double figures on the night, led by Jazmine Sepulveda, who tallied a game-high 25 points on 9-of-19 shooting from the field (6-12 from three). Shantia Grace added 18 points, followed by 12 points each from Janae Stokes and Jessica Lawson. Brittany Denson rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points. Lawson and Denson also recorded double-doubles by bringing down 12 and 11 rebounds, respectively. Porche Grant played 21 minutes off the bench and hauled in a team-high 13 rebounds.

Junior Emily Cournoyer (North Attleboro, Mass.) joined Marandola in double figures with 11 points. Lola Wells (Fontana, Calif.) came off the bench to dish a team-high four assists.

USF owned the glass with a 56-37 rebounding advantage. Providence College finished the night with 10 blocked shots, while USF rejected eight shots.
