Michigan Locks Down the Friars

Nichols Michigan

Michigan used a 14-2 run late in the first half to turn a 21-20 game into a 35-22 advantage heading into halftime on Sunday afternoon. The Wolverines never looked back from there, locking down the Friars defensively and coasting to a 66-47 victory to win the Air Force Reserve Tip-Off tournament at Mohegan Sun.

Providence had no answer for the versatile Ignas Brazdeikis, the Canadian freshman who has brought an element of physicality to Michigan’s frontcourt this season. He led Michigan with 20 points, while just two Friars scored in double figures. David Duke finished with 12 points, while Alpha Diallo struggled for the first time this season, scoring 10 on 3-13 shooting from the field.

The Friars connected on just two of its 18 attempts from beyond the 3-point arc and shot 28% from the field and 65% at the foul line for the game.

On an afternoon lacking for bright spots for Providence, freshman Jimmy Nichols blocked four shots in his second start of the season.

After a busy week, Providence is now off until Saturday when they host Iona at the Dunkin Donuts Center.
