Brendon over at BaselineStats.com has an updated bracket analysis with a lot of great note about the teams on the bubble…i.e. our Providence Friars.
Providence (16-9, 8-5 in Big East; 67 RPI, 52 SOS, 3-6 vs. top 50, 5-9 vs. top 100): The Friars’ top point in their favor is that lovely 8-5 conference record. The best of those eight wins are a sweep of Cincinnati, a home win over Syracuse and a road win at Seton Hall. PC also defeated Rhode Island by one at home out of conference in a non-conference slate devoid of anything else (good) of note. That’s the list of top-100 wins, and it’s not a list that impresses, especially when you consider the number of opportunities the Friars have had. Nonetheless, two wins over Cincy and an 8-5 conference record in a good conference means something.
