    Let's break this down:
    (1) Freemantle has a terrible three-point shot
    (2) he misses his three-point attempts
    (3) it wastes a possession for someone else and
    (4) he is not in the post to rebound his misses.

    That is double plus un-good. This basketball insight has been brought to you compliments of XavierHoops.
    So, if I'm understanding the above, you don't think its a good idea for Free to shoot the long ball?

    Someone is going to have to sack up and control Nate Watson tomorrow.

    Colby shouldn't have to guard him - but might we see it?

    Providence had their own Covid pause (and now has to reschedule a home game against UConn and roadies at Creighton and Seton Hall) and had a couple of shaky wins against Georgetown and Butler at home. As well as they've played, going to Xavier is a much bigger test for them.

    Freemantle's three-point shot needs to go live on a farm where it can run free with Quentin Goodin's.

    8 point favorite over #17 team in country. Would be a good win, losing at Marquette isn’t earth is falling situation people were making it out to be. Win here and X is right on track for a 6 seed or better.

    Have to imagine 75% of the money is on Providence with that line. Vegas must not mind having X in the matchup and the bookmakers usually arenít wrong when they take a side against the public.

    although I donít see it a lot in cbb. If the line doesnít move even as money comes in on Providence, it means the bookies want to have X in the game. If it moves a lot, it just means they set a bad line. But usually when a line looks crazy itís for a reason (and I agree that line is crazy)

    X needs to play ZONE in this game make Providence, which isn’t a good 3 point shooting team, beat them from OUTSIDE.
