PROVIDENCE (WPRI) – For the first time since the end of the 2021-22 season, the Providence Friars are back in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll. A current nine-game winning streak and 6-0 mark in the Big East vaulted the Friars from unranked to No. 19 this week. Wednesday’s upset win at home over then-No. 4 UConn a big reason why the Friars jumped into the Top 20.
The Friars now put their 14-3 record to the test when they visit Creighton on Saturday afternoon. The Blue Jays were the preseason favorite to win the Big East.
