Twitter Reactions: Providence Upsets #16 Butler


Luwane Pipkins played his best game as a Friar, scoring 22 points and making all ten of his foul shots to lead Providence to a 65-61 upset of #16 Butler on Saturday afternoon.

Pipkins and David Duke (10) were the only Friars to crack double figures in scoring, but PC responded to a number of second half Butler runs with timely scoring and solid defense. Maliek White was very effective against Kamar Baldwin, as Baldwin shot 4-15 from the field and 0-5 from deep.

Butler made 1-14 from beyond the 3-point arc, and Providence led 31-25 at the half, despite the Bulldogs taking 19 free throws. PC’s bench outscored Butler’s 27-1.

We will have a lot more on this game later tonight, but for now, here are some of the reactions from Twitter.
