The Brothers have played well this season, averaging over 80 points per game this season. The trio of Bryce Hopkins, Ed Croswell and Devin Carter have all contributed hugely, averaging more than 10 points per game this season. Hopkins has played the lead role averaging 16 points per game and has great free throw accuracy of over 70%.
The team has been very good at converting rebounds in their favor and averaged over 15 assists per game. Defensively, too, they’ve done well with blocks and steals of more than five per game this season. They don’t have much to worry about, the only concern is the turnover per game which needs to be solved to increase the scoring possibilities.
In the case of the Blue Demons, they managed to score over 72 points per game but couldn’t convert them into wins. Major contributions came from Javan Johnson and Umoja Gibson. Both players did well averaging around 16 points per game and were responsible for the team’s success.
Javen is the star with a FG conversion percentage of 46 and a three-point accuracy of around 47. The effort as a team is reflected with 13 assists and seven steals per game. But they need to change things up when it comes to the defensive setup, as evidenced by the tight losses they have suffered.
Providence Friars vs DePaul Blue Demons Prediction
You can see that there is a big difference between the two teams and that will be a game-changer. With the Brothers making great progress and regularly scoring over 80 points, they are in great shape.
While the Blue Demons have been inconsistent this season, neither their attack nor their defense are guaranteed to do well in this game. We can expect them to go in favor of the Brethren, with them scoring big in this one.
