Providence has been playing with some intensity recently winning four of their last six matchups, while also going 5-1 ATS. It is also encouraging to see this team take Villanova into overtime.
The shooting hasn’t been to hot though as Providence is only converting 42.4% of their shots in their last five contests. Their defense has been playing respectably only giving up 71.4 PPG in that span.
Providence sports the 104th most efficient offense, but they are more of a defensive-minded squad ranking 35th in efficiency.
They are also battle-tested with a strength of schedule that ranks 19th overall, but the out of conference schedule has been mediocre ranking 187th overall.
Leading the Friars has been Senior Forward Rodney Bullock and Sophomore Guard Alpha Diallo. Bullock is averaging 14.0 PPG and 5.8 RPG, while Diallo is averaging 13.0 PPG and 6.6 RPG.
Texas A&M Aggies
Texas A&M has been pretty average heading into the big dance winning three of their last seven contests while going a meager 2-5 ATS. To be optimistic, at least they’ve had a week to prepare for this game.
In their last five contests, they are only shooting a 44.6 PPG from the field, which is below their season average of 45.6%. Their defense hasn’t been as stout giving up 74.8 PPG in that span.
Texas A&M has been efficient on both sides of the court ranking 71st in offensive efficiency and 12th overall in defensive efficiency.
All-around, Texas A&M’s strength of schedule has been impressive, owning the 7th toughest conference schedule and the 38th toughest out of conference schedule.
They are led by Junior Center Tyler Davis and Junior Guard Admon Gilder. Davis is averaging 14.5 PPG and 8.8 RPG, while Gilder is averaging 12.2 PPG and 4.2 RPG.

Although Texas A&M isn’t in great form, they’ve had time to rest and prepare for Providence. This should be a close matchup, but I like the more talented team to prevail behind their stout defense.
