Providence Vs. DePaul: Big East Basement Battle Set For Saturday

The DePaul Blue Demons (11-16, 2-13 Big East) host the Providence Friars (13-15, 2-13 Big East) on Saturday afternoon.

Two teams at the bottom of the Big East conference standings meet head-to-head on Saturday afternoon. The DePaul Blue Demons and Providence Friars each have disappointing 2-13 records in Big East play, so the winner of Saturday's game can escape the dubious distinction of worst team in the conference. The Blue Demons have lost seven straight games, while the Friars have a five-game skid of their own, so one losing streak will also come to an end.

Despite the terrible win-loss records, there are still some very talented players will be on display. Sophomore forward Cleveland Melvin leads DePaul with an average of 17.7 points per game in 7.1 rebounds, while Providence guard Vincent Council leads the entire Big East conference with an average of 7.2 assists per game.
