It was the Friars’ first win over a ranked opponent since Jan. 7, 2009, when they took down then-No. 20 Pittsburgh.
The Blue Demons (14-3, 2-1 Big East) played with a depleted lineup due to injuries that left them with eight available players. Keisha Hampton, who averages 16.6 points, missed her second straight game with an injured leg.
Anna Martin led the Blue Demons with 17 points.
Wright had 10 points by the middle of the first half, and Providence (9-7, 1-2) led 35-28 at halftime.
