A crucial Big East contest takes shape Saturday night as the #16 Providence Friars take on the Georgetown Hoyas.
The Big East is a log jam from top to bottom, making this game extremely important for both teams. Currently, Georgetown holds a one game lead on Providence as they sit 3 and 4 in the conference.
The Friars have had plenty of time to think about their most recent loss on Tuesday.
After going into #4 Villanova and defeating them in overtime, the Friars welcomed in the #4 Xavier Musketeers to the Dunkin Donuts Center for a huge game. A Providence win would have them right there at the top of the Big East standings.
Providence trailed for a majority of the game as they could never seemingly get over the hump. They trailed by 8 at the half and got to within 3 with 2 minutes to go, but a couple misses combined with a could Musketeers makes put the game away.
The Friars are a perfect 5-0 in true road games this season and overall they are 7-1 ATS away from the Dunkin Donuts Center.
A win here would certainly help their cause as they cannot afford to fall back any further and allow the lower teams to catch them with just over a month to play.
The Hoyas are right there with Xavier and Villanova atop the Big East standings and have a chance to really make a move here.
Georgetown fell to Villanova by 5 earlier, but they also went into Xavier and knocked them off. With that, they are currently tied for 2nd with identical 6-2 records along side Xavier. They both trail Nova by just 1 game.
However, in the balance sits Providence, Creighton, and Seton Hall all within striking distance.
The thing the Hoyas have lacked is finding any stability or consistency after grabbing wins. Georgetown has exchanged wins and losses over their last 4 and haven’t put together a solid winning streak that involved all quality opponents.
They have a road trip coming up, but these are very winnable games for them. The Hoyas will go to Butler and Seton Hall and Providence with a home date against St. Johns mixed in between there.
