The DePaul Blue Demons will travel to play the 11th-ranked Providence Friars for a Saturday night conference matchup.
DePaul (12-10, 3-9 Big East) is coming off an 82-74 win against Georgetown, thanks in large part to David Jones recording the first triple-double in program history. The sophomore forward secured 22 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists. The Blue Demons also defeated No. 21 Xavier last Saturday, so we’ll see if two wins against top-25 teams is how they plan to wrap up the week.
Providence is currently leading the Big East with a 20-2 overall record, and only one conference loss to date. Head coach Ed Cooley has the Friars playing at a well-balanced, authoritative pace. There’s virtually no reason why this unit can’t make a serious tournament run this year, representing one of the best conferences in college hoops.
