No. 17 Providence seeks sharper performance vs. No. 21 Xavier

No. 17 Providence came out of a COVID pause last week with one of the best possible scheduling situations -- consecutive home dates against two teams at or near the bottom of the Big East Conference.

The Friars (16-2, 6-1) won both games, but weren't overly impressive in either one, and now will hit the road for the first time since Jan. 4 when they visit No. 21 Xavier (14-4, 4-3) on Wednesday.

Providence first played Georgetown on Thursday. In their first game after an 11-day layoff, the Friars led by 16 points in the second half but settled for an 83-75 victory against the last-place Hoyas. Against struggling Butler on Sunday, the Friars allowed the Bulldogs to score the first eight points of the second half to take the lead and couldn't put away the league's ninth-place squad until the final two minutes.
