Piscataway, NJ (Sports Network) - Bryce Cotton paced all scorers with 22 points as the Providence Friars outlasted the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 76-72, in a Big East Conference bout at the RAC.

LaDontae Henton was stellar as well for Providence (15-11, 7-8 Big East), shooting 7-of-11 from the field (including 3-of-4 from 3-point range) for 18 points to go along with 10 rebounds. Kadeem Batts logged 14 points and eight boards, while Vincent Council had 12 points and six assists for the Friars, who have won five of six.

Rutgers outshot Providence from the field in the first half, 43.3 percent to 38.2 percent, but the Friars took a 42-33 advantage into intermission by putting together strong showings from beyond the arc (6-of-12) and the foul line (10-of-11).

The Scarlet Knights came back to tie the game, 52-52, with just under 11 minutes to play on a Miller layup, but the Friars ended the threat with four straight points. Providence never led by more than seven points the rest of the way, but it also never trailed.
