Corey’s Free Pick
The return of Bryce Hopkins was huge for Providence, and after struggling in game one, a strong effort from him may lead to a smoother victory for Ed Copley’s squad. Devin Carter looked great in his return to action, and this feels like a spot the Friars can run it up in at home. Expect a sharper effort from Providence here, and back them to lay the points in this non-conference battle.
