Is Slumping Providence In A Bad Spot?

Providence is hitting a poorly timed rough patch, much like last season, as they have dropped three of their last four games heading into Wednesday's with Marquette. The Friars will be battling history when they take on the Golden Eagles, as Providence is 2-12 SU and ATS in their past 14 games against Marquette.

Shark Bites
  • Marquette is 7-3 ATS in their past 10 games as underdogs.
  • Providence is 9-1 ATS in their past 10 games on the road.
  • Marquette is 9-26 SU in their past 36 games within the Big East.

The Friars have averaged just 68.3 points while shooting just 36.5% from the floor and 32.9% from beyond the arc. Kris Dunn, who has been one of the best all around players in the nation, has been ice-cold as the junior has shot 9-for-35 in the past two outings.

Marquette has not been doing much better as they enter Wednesday’s game on a two game skid. The Golden Eagles are young and have proven to be inconsistent defensively, as they have allowed opponents to shoot over 50% from the floor in their last two games. Freshman Henry Ellenson has continued to be one of the best youngsters in the country as he has averaged 18.4 points and 11.2 rebounds in the past five outings.
