The 2017-2018 has finally come to an end for the Providence Friars and it could not have come soon enough. Providence has been holding on to (what most think is) an at large bid and by the skin of their teeth.
We are hours away from the Big East Tournament kicking off at Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York City. For those of you that haven’t been paying attention, the Big East teams have been beating the life out of each other over the last month, and now it all comes down to a four-day tournament to see if anyone can steal the title or a bid to the Big Dance.
The Big East conference has been turned upside down as of late, and the Providence Friars taking down #3 Villanova at The Dunk on Wednesday night was just another example of what’s been going on in conference play.
Tonight, the Providence Friars welcome the #3 ranked Wildcats from Villanova to The Dunk. Ed Cooley needs a big win from the Friars to secure another at large bid, and it very well could happen.
