Big East titans clash when No. 16 Xavier hosts No. 17 Providence

Two of the strongest teams in the Big East square off on Wednesday night when No. 16 Xavier plays host to 17th-ranked Providence in Cincinnati.

Xavier (17-5, 9-2 Big East) enters the game tied for first in the conference but is coming off an 84-67 loss at Creighton on Saturday. The Friars (17-5, 9-2) also sit atop the conference, alongside the Musketeers and Marquette.

The Musketeers received untimely news on Tuesday with the revelation that big man Zach Freemantle will be sidelined at least four weeks with a left foot injury. Freemantle is averaging 15.2 points and a team-best 8.1 rebounds per game and is shooting 58.5 percent from the field.
