Butler, Boger Record Double-Doubles as Providence Edges Dunn, 61-59

Providence finishes undefeated in league play

Providence pushed away Dunn, 61-59, in a road game on Thursday. 

Nick Butler scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, while Evan Boger recorded 15-and-14 to complement his fellow senior. Bryan Sheets had a 15-and-9 game himself, falling a board short of a third double-double for the Patriots.

Butler was assigned the task of guarding Dunn's leading scorer John Sal June. Patriots coach Steve Stokes had praise for Butler's defensive output after the game. 

"Nick did a great job of making everything tough on him tonight - not a single easy look," Stokes said. 

Providence finishes the regular season at 19-2 overall, 6-0 in league play. The team has now won three straight undefeated Condor League titles. 

The Patriots will compete as the sixth seed in the CIF Division 5AA playoffs. Brackets will be released Sunday.

"I am really proud of our guys for the season we have put together, especially when you consider everyone on this roster is in a totally different role than they were last year," Stokes said. "Playoffs is a brand new season though."

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
