College Basketball: Streaks, Tips, Notes 

Providence at Louisville

Knocking off Kentucky 80-77 in it's most recently action the Cardinals netting 78.2 PPG with an impressive defense (57.2 PPG) holding opponents to just 39.8% shooting including 29.7% from outside are rolling along at 12-1 (7-6 ATS) including 7-0 (3-4 ATS) on home court. Opening Big East play against Providence the Cardinals will be looking for pay-back. The Friars handed Rick Pitino's troops an embarrassing 90-59 loss in last years meeting. Russ Smith (19.8), Peyton Siva (12.0), Chane Behanan (11.5), Wayne Blackshear (9.6), Gorgui Dieng (7.8) all returning from last years team move the mark to 8-2 SU/ATS vs Friars as they exact revenge.
