Almost but not quite for Providence
The Friars were with in six of St. Mary's with 4:44 to go but just couldn't pull off the upset as the Gaels pulled away and won 81-75. Patrick Mills led the Gaels with 24 points and three others chimed in with double-digit efforts. Jonathan Kale was Providence's leading scorer, dropping 20 points and grabbing ten rebounds. Weyinmi Efejuku had 11 points. Geoff McDermott had a quiet game, scoring only four points, because of foul trouble.
