The Providence College Friars begin the Big East tournament Thursday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. For the second year in a row Providence will take on Creighton in the tournament quarterfinals. The two teams split their season series this year and it was the Blue Jays that bounced the Friars from MSG last year. Providence needs a win to feel good about their NCAA Tournament resume.
