Providence Friars (17-10; 9-16 ATS;13-12 O/U) vs. Georgetown Hoyas (15-11; 13-10 ATS; 12-11 O/U)

The Georgetown Hoyas will host the Providence Friars in a Big East clash Saturday afternoon from the Capital One Arena. The Friars are coming off an 89-77 home loss to Seton Hall in their latest action, and the Hoyas dropped an 89-77 decision to Xavier on Wednesday night. The Friars tallied a 73-69 home win against Georgetown in the first meeting earlier this month.

Friars Defense Falters in Loss to Seton Hall

The Providence Friars played poor defense in their 89-77 loss to Seton Hall to fall to 8-7 in Big East play. The game was suspended Tuesday night in the second half due to poor court conditions and resumed Wednesday afternoon. Kyron Cartwright was a bright spot in the defeat, collecting 25 points on 9 for 17 shooting. The senior guard has only reached double-digits in points in two out his last five games, and is currently averaging 11.4 points on 43% shooting. Friars’ leading scorer Rodney Bullock chipped in with 13 points and six rebounds in the loss to Seton Hall. The senior forward has not been quite as effective in his last five games, bringing him down to 14.3 points on a 43.7% field goal efficiency.

The Friars have now lost three out of their last four games and they will likely need to win one of their three remaining games to stay in contention for the NCAA Tournament. They are currently placed as a #10 seed in Joe Lunardi’s bracketology for the NCAA Tournament, and Ken Pomeroy’ has them ranked 76th in the country in his rankings. Providence is scoring an average of 74.4 points per game, ranking them 163rd overall. They are allowing 73 points, positioning them 195th overall.

Hoyas Fall to #4 Xavier in 10th Conference Loss

The Georgetown Hoyas played well in the offensive end but it wasn’t enough in an 89-77 home loss to #4 Xavier on Wednesday night to fall to 5-10 in Big East play. The Hoyas posted a solid 48% field goal efficiency, however they were out-rebounded 38-29. Jamorko Pickett led the way offensively with an 21-point effort on a 6 for 11 mark from the field in the loss. The freshman guard has come through with some solid performances down the final stretch, and he stands third in team scoring with 9.8 points on 37% shooting. Hoyas’ leading scorer Jessie Govan notched the double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds in Wednesday’s loss. The junior center has shot at least 54% in four out of his last five games, and he is having a tremendous season, posting an average of 16.7 points and 10.1 rebounds per game.

The Hoyas had their mini two game winning streak snapped in Wednesday’s loss, and although they sit near the bottom of the conference standings, they have been quite competitive in many of their losses. They are currently placed at 94th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Georgetown is scoring an average of 78.7 points per game, ranking them 65th in the nation. They are allowing 74.8 points per game, placing them 239th overall.

Trends:

The Providence Friars are:

  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600.
  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a double-digit home loss.

The Georgetown Hoyas are:

  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
  • 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games.

I am siding with Georgetown in this matchup. Providence has been very inconsistent in both ends of the court, and they are only averaging 64 points in their last four road games. Furthermore, Georgetown has defeated both Seton Hall and Butler in the last two weeks, and they are in a groove offensively, averaging 81.4 points in their last five games. Georgetown has the rebounding advantage, and I am confident they can come through on their home court.
