Providence’s Full Schedule Announced

Nate Watson SJU

The Big East announced the 2018-19 conference schedule on Thursday, and Providence will open conference play at home against Creighton on New Year’s Eve (4pm).

Here’s a closer look at the schedule:

Road tripping: Friar fans looking to take a weekend trip to an opposing arena will have plenty of opportunities to do so this winter. After kicking off Big East play with Creighton and defending national champion Villanova at home, PC travels to D.C. to take on Georgetown on Jan. 12 (noon start).

Providence plays at Marquette on Sunday, Jan. 20, at DePaul on Saturday, Feb. 2, and at St. John’s in Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Feb. 9.

Scheduling Oddities: As has been the case since the Big East realigned, the Friars will play each conference opponent twice. Providence has both DePaul and Butler twice in a three game span.

The DePaul games take place on Jan. 27 and Feb. 2, while Providence closes out their regular season schedule by going to Butler, then Creighton, before closing against Butler at home on March 9.

Fox Features: Providence will play a nationally televised game against Xavier on Fox on Feb. 16 (at home), and their Jan. 5 tilt against Villanova could be flexed from Fox Sports 1 to Fox. They’ll also be featured on Fox when they take on Marquette on Feb. 23.

All three games taking place at home is a great opportunity to further showcase the program.

Here is the release from Providence’s athletic department on the schedule release:
