Providence Friars DFS Snapshot

Nate Watson scored 26 points and added seven rebounds in Thursday's win over Butler in the Big East quarterfinals. Watson's play was critical on a day where the Friars otherwise struggled offensively -- none of his teammates sank even half of their shots, and only Jared Bynum (16 points, nine of them at the line) cracked double figures. Four of Watson's rebounds came on the offensive glass, leading to critical second-chance points.

The Jackrabbits have covered in 10 of their last 11 neutral site games as an underdog, are 7-2-1 against the number in their last 10 games as an underdog and are 21-7-2 at the window in their last 30 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
