Providence @ Marquette

Current Records: Providence 13-1; Marquette 8-6

What to Know

The Marquette Golden Eagles and the #16 Providence Friars are even-steven against one another since January of 2016 (6-6), but not for long. The Golden Eagles' homestand continues as they prepare to take on Providence at 9 p.m. ET Jan. 4 at Fiserv Forum. The teams split their matchups last year, with Marquette winning the first 79-69 at home and Providence taking the second 72-63.

Marquette was within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 75-69 to the Creighton Bluejays. Forward Justin Lewis had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only nine points on 4-for-18 shooting in his 37 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Providence didn't have too much trouble with the DePaul Blue Demons on the road this past Saturday as they won 70-53. The Friars got double-digit scores from four players: guard Aljami Durham (17), guard Jared Bynum (12), forward Justin Minaya (12), and forward Noah Horchler (11).

Providence's victory lifted them to 13-1 while Marquette's defeat dropped them down to 8-6. We'll see if Providence can repeat their recent success or if the Golden Eagles bounce back and reverse their fortune.
