PROVIDENCE INJURY NOTE: Kyron Cartwright re-injured one of his ankles on Sunday against Creighton. He played just 22 minutes in that game, with just seven coming after halftime. As of yesterday, PC head coach Ed Cooley was not sure that Cartwright would be able to play in this game. If he sits, it would be freshman Makai Ashton-Langford taking his spot in the lineup.
