One of the more interesting resumes that I can ever remember. All they do is win... but usually not by very much. They're 9-0 in games decided by 5 points or less. 13-0 in games decided by 10 points or less.
The metrics hate Providence (47th in KenPom). They win close games, and have been blown out in both of their losses. Watson is the leader of the team. Bynum, Durham, and Horchler all play well. But, no bonafide superstars on this team. I think people get hesitant about Providence because they don't strike you as a Final Four team. They look like a good team, someone that might be a capable of winning a game or two in the tournament. But, most people don't think they'll go very far in March. And most don't think they're better than Villanova.
Only stat that really matters, though, is they're 21-2. If they keep winning, they could legitimately earn a 1 seed. Crazy thing about PC is, they have never won a regular season conference championship. They currently have two less conference losses than Villanova. Could be an exciting finish in the Big East down the home stretch.
