The Providence Friars will be paying a visit to the UConn Huskies, marking the start of the New England Big East rivalry this season.
Providence successfully handled their business on Saturday by securing a victory against Georgetown in Ed Cooley’s return. After enduring a 4 game losing streak in Big East play, the Friars have bounced back and emerged victorious in their last 3 games. With the Big East still up for grabs, any team that manages to surpass the Huskies this season will greatly enhance their chances of securing the title. A surprising triumph in this particular game would significantly contribute to turning that possibility into a reality for the Friars.
Providence must deliver an exceptional defensive performance, this time around. With their impressive ranking of 48th in scoring defense, allowing a mere 66.1 points per game, they possess the necessary talent to achieve this feat. Although it will be challenging to contain the top ranked team on their home turf, the Friars have proven themselves as a formidable force in the Big East and are capable of rising to the occasion.
UConn continues to maintain its momentum after securing the top spot in the national rankings. Despite their initial setback against Seton Hall in the Big East game, they have bounced back impressively, winning eight consecutive matches. Notably, the Huskies have been unbeatable on their home turf, triumphing in all 11 games played this season.
UConn’s home defense poses a formidable challenge for any visiting team at Harry A. Gampel Pavilion. They hold an admirable 24th rank in the nation, conceding a mere 64.2 points per game.
Overall it is going to be a massive clash, however the Huskies are known for their program. With them playing at home we expect UConn to take this one.
