These guys may be the talk of the first weekend! Here is an outlook for the Providence Friars:
Who: North Carolina Tar Heels
So you win the “Big East,” and have to face off against Roy Williams and UNC in the first round. Yeah, that sounds fair! However, I love the confidence that the Friars are playing with and I think we have an upset alert on our hands…
When: Friday March 21th, 7:20 PM EST
Potential Third Round Matchup: UConn/St. Joe’s
Whoever they play, Providence will have the advantage in the third round. The question is can they get past UNC on Friday. If they do, look for the hot shooting of the Friar guards to continue into the Sweet Sixteen.
Will they get to the Sweet 16?: Yes
UNC has been inconsistent all season long. Providence has been as well, but they are the hot team going into this weekend. Look for the Friars to get back to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1997.
