Watson free throw puts Providence over DePaul 66-65
The Friars led through most of the second half but DePaul’s Jalen Coleman-Lands hit three free throws to tie it up 65-all with 16 seconds left. Watson was fouled with a second to play and sank his second from the line, giving Providence the winning edge.
Providence takes on Marquette on the road on Tuesday. DePaul faces St. John’s on the road next Saturday.
