Cougars favored by 3 on a neutral floor. Both teams pummeled St. Louis. Providence best wins: Boston College by 20 (who has since beaten Duke) and Washington by 7 (who has since won at Kansas). The Friars last 3 wins they have barely scraped by Rider, Brown, and Stony Brook by a combined 11 points. The Cougars are a better 3 point shooting team, FT shooting team, have a better rebounding margin, and take better care of the basketball than the Friars. This is a game UH has to have come March. It is easy to see the teams having similar resumes for an at large bid. On paper the Cougars are better.
