What to Know

Get ready for a Big East battle as the Providence Friars and the Xavier Musketeers will face off at 6:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Dunkin’ Donuts Center. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.

Things were close when Providence and the Villanova Wildcats clashed this past Saturday, but Providence ultimately edged out the opposition 58-54. Guard Luwane Pipkins took over for the Friars, finishing with 27 points (a whopping 47% of their total).

Speaking of close games: in a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 43 turnovers, Xavier took down the Georgetown Hoyas 66-63 on Sunday. It was another big night for Xavier’s forward Tyrique Jones, who posted a double-double on 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Providence is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Providence is now 17-12 while Xavier sits at 19-10. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Friars come into the matchup boasting the 16th most steals per game in college basketball at 8.2. But Xavier ranks 29th in college basketball when it comes to steals given up per game, with only seven on average. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
