The Hurricanes (4-0) also got 16 points from Brian Asbury and 12 from Anthony King.

Weyinmi Efejuku led Providence (2-1) with a game-high 21 points and Dwain Williams added 17.

The Friars jumped out to a 20-12 lead on a jumper by Efejuku with 2:53 to play in the first half. Providence led 22-18 at the half.
