Gianni Madrigal Leads Balanced Providence Past Villanova

Gianni Madrigal capped a solid week of play, scoring 17 points and dealing four assists in leading Providence to a 69-34 romp over Villanova Prep on the final day of the Santa Clarita Christian Tournament.

Madrigal averaged 19 points over four games.

The Patriots got a balanced effort in improving to 3-1 on the season. Brian Sheets tossed in 15 points and dished out six assists, Chase Avery had 10 points and seven rebounds and Ricky Beebe scored nine points and had five assists. Nick Butler led the team with nine rebounds.

"After our first week of games, you find out a lot about your guys and what we are going to be about. We have a tough group and a really tight group - been a lot of fun to coach. We share the ball and move the ball so well, creates open looks for everyone. Was proud of our guys being so dialed in on the defensive end today. When we are playing at our best, we are really tough to beat.

Providence improves to 3-1 on the season. Will play next on Monday night @ Carpinteria, 7:00 pm.

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!
