PC blows past Florida A&M

November 19, 2011

PROVIDENCE – Providence got a head start on Thanksgiving by feasting on an undermanned and overwhelmed Florida A&M squad, 87-65, before 6,052 at The Dunk. The Friars improve to 3-0 on the young season with the next game set for Tuesday at The Dunk against Southern. That game, like the one Saturday, is also part of the San Padre Invitational.
“I love playing at home,” noted Cooley, who encouraged the fans to shower the Friars with support during a first-half timeout. “To me there’s no greater place to play than The Dunk.”
Bryce Cotton continues to be the surprise of the early going as the sophomore netted a game-best 26 points on 10-of-16 shooting. Cotton was coming off a 24-point performance Monday at Fairfield.
“Just another night at the office for Bryce Cotton,” said Cooley with a smile.
Freshman LaDontae Henton collected his first collegiate double double, a performance that consisted of 13 points and 11 rebounds.
The Friars led 39-19 at halftime before going up as many as 35 points in the second half. Sophomore Vincent Council added 13 points and nine assists while Gerard Coleman came off the bench to chip in with 10 points.
PC held Florida A&M to 33 percent shooting. Both teams turned the ball over 20 times wity the Friars missing 8-of-14 at the free throw line.
