Analyzing Providence’s Scorching Start Through Statistics

It is truly incredible what is happening in Friar Town. Providence is 13-1, atop the Big East, nationally ranked, and on an 8 game winning streak. When I’ve glanced over this team’s statistics, nothing jumps out which clearly defines why Providence is doing so well. Is it fool’s gold or can the numbers help tell us something?

I then got a bit more granular and compared individual stats to the rest of the players in the Big East.

The findings below tell a pretty unique story that this Friar team has hung its hat on defense, and that will be their calling card moving forward.
