The missed time didn't hurt the Friars in the national polls as PC moved up two spots in the Associated Press top 25, reaching No. 21. Providence is also ranked 21st in the USA Today Coach's Poll, but dropped one spot over the past week.
PC's last game was an 83-73 home win over St. John's in Big East Conference action. Since that Jan. 8 win, games against Creighton, UConn and Seton Hall were all put on hold as a COVID-19 outbreak left several members of the Friars program in isolation.
In the win over St. John's, PC (14-2 overall, 4-1 Big East ) was led by senior center Nate Watson's double-double of 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

Senior Kaiden Rice led the Hoyas over the weekend with 19 points. Freshman guard Aminu Mohammed added 13 points and 12 rebounds.
