Richmond is playing some of the best basketball in the country right now and will be full of confidence after winning the A-10 Tournament Title and defeating Iowa in the first round. Providence won the Big East regular season title and looked good defeating a solid South Dakota State team in round one. Providence should have a nice advantage on the glass, but I am riding the hot team with Richmond and the points.
