The second round of the Big East Tournament takes place on Thursday at Madison Square Garden. It’s a 3/6 match up between the Providence Friars and the Creighton Bluejays.
This is the third meeting of the year. Each team won a game on the opposing teams home court. In the last match up the Friars won 68-66.
The Creighton Bluejays have had a tale of two seasons, the season with Maurice Watson Jr, and the season without him. He tore his ACL on January 16th against Xavier.
Before his injury the Bluejays were 18-1 and looked like a team that could make a big run in the NCAA Tournament. Since his injury they have went 5-7 and looked like a fringe NIT team.
Even though they are almost a lock to make the NCAA Tournament, it doesn’t look like they are going to get the seed they would have Watson on the team.
The biggest different for the Bluejays without Watson is on the defensive side of the ball. They have a really hard time playing good team defense without Watson to anchor them.
The Providence Friars are probably in the NCAA Tournament, even if they lose this game but if they were to lose it would make for a very nervous selection Sunday for the team and their fans.
The Friars come into this game with a 20-11 record and finished in 3rd place in the Big East regular season standings. They are one of the hottest teams in the land right now having won six games in a row.
The Friars strength is on the defensive side of the ball. They only give up 66.5 points per game and opponents shoot 44.1 percent from the field.
To win this game that is going to be important against the Bluejays who can score a lot of points a hurry. If this game is played in the 60’s that is a very good thing for Providence.

Free Creighton Bluejays vs. Providence Friars NCAAB Prediction:
This game is going to come down to if someone will step up in this game and lead the Bluejays on the offensive side of the ball.
I don’t think anyone will. I expect a low scoring game which works in the Friars favor. I think they will win the game.
