Providence Friars Basketball Schedule in 2014-15

The Providence Friars are looking to rack up the victories on the court this season as they face some of the best teams in college basketball. The Friars have loads of talent on this year's roster, and the coaching staff is looking to get the most out of the player in an effort to reach the top of the conference standings. The Friars play in the Big East, one of the top conference in the sport of college basketball. Last season the Friars were able to win 10 of their Big East matchups and 23 games overall. The Friars would love to see both of those numbers increase this season, but it's going to take some good basketball against some tough opponents to make that dream a reality. Providence will take on a host of top teams at home this season, and they'll need their loyal fans in the stands to cheer them on to victory. You can be a part of it all when you head out to see the Friars at home this season.

The Friars will certainly be looking forward to hosting the Villanova Wildcats. Villanova was able to approach 30 wins last season and finished first in the Big East standings, and they're sure to be a tough opponent again in 2014-15. Providence knows that they'll need to bring maximum effort to the court in this matchup, especially on the defensive end. The Wildcats are probably a more talented team, but team play and tough defense can outdo talent any day. This is sure to be one of the best matchups to hit the court at the Dunkin' Donuts Center this season, so expect to see the stands packed to the brim.

The Friars will have another tough game coming their way when the Georgetown Hoyas make the trip north to hit the court at the Dunkin' Donuts Center this season. The Hoyas have one of the best programs in the conference, and a history that includes some incredible seasons. However, the Hoyas are coming off a tough 2013-14 campaign that saw them struggle against Big East opponents. The Friars would love to capitalize on that and make the Hoyas pay, which would give this Providence team a big boost heading forward. Make sure to take a look at the full schedule to see all the teams coming to take on the Friars at home this season.
