The Merrimack Warriors will head down to Rhode Island and take on the Providence Friars from the Amica Mutual Pavilion on FS2.

Merrimack is 1-4 after a pair of losses over the weekend to Montana and St. Thomas (MN). The Warriors had a rough stay in Big Sky Country, dropping both contests by 11 points, despite not trailing at halftime in either bout. Merrimack  is scoring 78.5 points per game, while shooting 47.4% from the field, and 35.7% from deep.

The Warriors may have to go into this uphill battle without their best playing Jordan Minor. The 6’8 forward led the team in scoring last season (15.1), and was off to a strong start in two games this Fall, but he’s missed the last three contests. With Minor out, fellow two-year starter Ziggy Reid has handled a bigger role. The 6’6 swingman tied a career-high with 22 points against St. Thomas, and he’s up to 12.6 ppg.

Providence fell to 3-2 after losing to Saint Louis Sunday afternoon. The Friars blew a a halftime lead and walked away from the Hall of Fame Tip-Off with questions on their legitimacy after a rough weekend.Providence is scoring 78.4 points per game, while shooting 45.7% from the floor, and 35.9% from deep.

Bryce Hopkins’ hot start continued in Connecticut last week. The sophomore swingman scored a career-high 20 points against Saint Louis, and he’s leading Providence in both scoring (16.1) and rebounding (8.4). Veteran Jared Bynum is one of the smartest point guards in the country, and he’s scoring 12.4 ppg, while dishing out 4.8 apg. Veteran big Ed Croswell posted his second double-double of the season versus the Billikens.

Merrimack is 0-4 against the spread this season, with a 0-4 over/under record. Providence is 1-3 ATS this year, with a 1-3 o/u record.

I can’t imagine losing twice in a 24-hour time frame feels nice, Providence should more than likely get back in the win column without much trouble Wednesday. Now despite them proving not to be trustworthy so far, they will face a notably inferior team missing their best player. The Friars should flex their muscles, take some anger out and snap a two-game skid here. Take Providence’s spread for this non-conference bout, and the under trend for both schools may provide an angle as well.
