LaDontae Henton's Final Home Game

Providence senior LaDontae Henton will play his final game at the Dunkin' Donuts Center and it will be the first time his parents have been in the building to see him play. Henton, along with Carson Desrosiers and Tyler Harris, will partake in Senior Day ceremonies that are set to begin at 11:30am. Henton has more than 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in his career and joins Ryan Gomes as the only two players in the school's history to accomplish that feat. Henton was a member of the 2000/1000 club in his school as well.

Big East Tournament Seeding

This game is critical for seeding in next week's Big East Tournament. If Providence wins they are the 2 seed. Butler needs to win and get some help from Seton Hall for that to happen. Butler is looking for their 6th road win of the Big East season and the potential for finishing second in the league after being picked 7th preseason is impressive.

Dunn vs. Barlow

Kris Dunn and Alex Barlow are two of the best guards in the Big East. They each are proficient at getting steals from their opponents and are key leaders on their respective teams. This should be an interesting matchup to keep an eye on as Barlow's scrappy nature has caused Dunn some problems in the past.
