The Providence Friars dropped to 17-8 (7-5 Big East) on the season after being defeated by the Villanova Wildcats, 74-68, this past Wednesday. Providence shot 43.1% from the field and 44.4% (8-18) from beyond the arc in the loss. Leading the way for the Friars was LaDontae Henton who had 23 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals. Providence is ranked 25th in the RPI Standings and has played the 16th ranked SOS. On the season, the Friars have been led by LaDontae Henton (20.5 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 1.4 spg) and Kris Dunn (15.2 ppg, 6.0 rpg, 7.5 apg). Providence is average 69.9 ppg and allowing their opponents to average 65.7 ppg.
The Pirates are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games however, just 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Friars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games.
Seton Hall has really struggled as of late as they have dropped 6 of their last 8 and recently found out that sophomore guard, Jaren Sina (7.0 ppg, 2.3 apg), has decided to transfer out of Seton Hall. Providence dropped a tough one against Villanova, however, have been great at home (11-3) on the season. Seton Hall has the talent to be able to really put the ball in the basket, however, have been in a real downward spiral as of late. Although this is more points that I wish that I would have to cover, I just can't trust Seton Hall until I see that their able to regain some of the momentum they had in the beginning of the season. I think that LaDontae Henton and Kris Dunn lead Providence to a double digit victory in this one. Take Providence and the points.
