Providence Player Spotlight

Alpha Diallo had 13 points (5-14 FG, 1-4 3pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds and three assists in Wednesday's 73-64 loss against Seton Hall. Diallo has 21 points in the last two games and has gone 1-7 from 3-point land in that stretch. While he was racking up double-doubles early in the season, his rebound numbers have struggled in conference play and that'll continue to be a worry with Villanova and Butler on the schedule next.

Butler Player Spotlight

Kamar Baldwin had 21 points (9-21 FG, 1-4 3pt, 2-2 FT) and two steals in Tuesday's 76-61 loss against Villanova. Baldwin tried his best to keep his team competitive, but it wasn't enough in the end. He seems to be over his ankle issues and has scored at least 16 points in each of the last six games, though his lack of other stats is keeping his upside down.
