Providence looks to continue their 18-game winning streak against St. Francis (NY). They are 18-7 all-time against the Terriers having last played in 1993. The Friars would also like to shake off the cobwebs from their high turnover and sluggish overall performance in their win over Grambling St on Saturday. The Friars only had one day to prepare for this game and this will mark their fourth game in 7 days, including a road trip to Columbus to take on Ohio State in the Gavitt Games last Thursday.
St. Francis (NY) is looking to rebound from a 40-point shellacking at ACC power Virginia on Saturday. The Terriers finished just 15-17 last season but 11 of their wins came in Northeast conference play. Any win in their tough non-conference schedule would give them added confidence heading into league play.
