Providence Paid Tribute To Sandy Hook Victims Last Night With 26 Open Seats And Special Uniforms

An awesome way to honor the victims.

Providence won its matchup against Colgate last night, but the real story isn't about the dominant 79-45 victory; it's about the tribute the basketball team paid to the victims of the Sandy Hook tragedy. While a lot of schools have honored the victims by wearing patches that say "SH", Providence partnered with Nike to get custom green and white uniforms with the words "Sandy Hook" written across the back.

There were also 26 seats left open in honor of the 26 victims.
