The Stakes

Providence is looking to get back on the right side of the W-L column and avoid an RPI killing loss to a Grambling St team that has routinely been ranked in the 300’s out of 351 teams in Division I college basketball.

Grambling St head coach Shawn Walker is entering his third season at the helm of the Tiger’s program and he's looking for a signature win against a high major team. For a program that has gone winless as recently as 2007, getting a win against a team from the Big East might mean similar things to an NCAA Tournament appearance when you put Grambling St’s extreme lack of success in context.

Inside the Numbers

Grambling St currently ranks 5th in turnover % forced at 28.1%, according to Kenpom.com. Providence ranks 4th nationally in turnover % on offense at just 11.0%. Taking care of the basketball versus trying to pry it away will be an interesting game within the game to keep an eye on Saturday afternoon.
