Providence Friars

The Friars were a spotty 11-6 in mid-January, but they’ve been better since then. Providence has gone 7-3 in their last 10 outings, beating DePaul, Seton Hall, Georgetown, Creighton, St. John’s, DePaul again and Xavier in that time with losses to UConn, Villanova and Butler otherwise.

In the Xavier matchup last Wednesday, the Friars came out of the break with a 38-33 deficit. Providence turned it on in the second half with a 46-37 run however and took the comeback win 79-75. Devin Carter was the team’s leading scorer on 22 points and 11 boards for a double-double.

Marquette Golden Eagles

Over on the Eagles’ side, they only lost five of their first 16 games this year. Marquette has lost only one of their last 11 outings since then, beating Villanova, St. John’s, DePaul, Seton Hall, Villanova again, Georgetown, St. John’s again, Butler, DePaul again and Xavier in that stretch.

Matched up against Xavier on Sunday, the Golden Eagles were up comfortably at halftime 38-28. Marquette closed on a 52-38 run to bag the 88-64 blowout victory in the end. Kam Jones topped the team on his 34 points, two rebounds, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes.


I’ll stick with Marquette. This should be a pretty fun matchup, though; both teams are playing well right now. The Golden Eagles didn’t have many troubles versus Xavier over the weekend. Marquette hit 47.8 percent from the field with 40 rebounds in that one and held the Musketeers to just 35.7 percent shooting on the other side. In 10 of the last 11 games the Eagles have scored 73 points or more (all 10 of those were wins).

These teams saw each other way back on December 19 in a 72-57 home win for Providence. Marquette was out of sorts in that one, shooting just 32.1 percent from the field with 14 total turnovers. I like the Eagles to get some revenge in the home rematch; they should be able to get the offense going quickly here.
