Tuesday will bring us a Big East showdown in Omaha as the No. 23 Providence Friars will hit the road to battle the Creighton Blue Jays.
Providence (14-2, 4-1 Big East) got back into the win column on Saturday when taking out St. John’s with an 83-73 victory. The Red Storm led by as many as seven in the second half before the Friars were able to flip the momentum and secure the win. Nate Watson delivered a solid double-double performance of 22 points and 11 rebounds.
Creighton (10-4, 2-1 Big East) was last in action last Wednesday, where it got bulldozed by Villanova in a 75-41 loss. The Wildcats only led by one midway through the first half but kept piling onto an ever-growing lead and never looked back. Alex O’Connell had 13 points for the Blue Jays and was their only player to hit double digits.
