Providence a 10-Seed in Joe Lunardi’s December 7th Bracket Release

Joe Lunardi updated his bracket at ESPN.com on Thursday and Providence remained in his field of 68, though they dropped one seed line since his last update on November 30th. Friar fans might get triggered when they see that Lunardi has Providence facing USC again. Obviously this bracket isn’t even close to Selection Sunday, but I always find it good to keep an eye on where Providence is projected to find themselves in March. At the minimum it provides a look at how the team is being perceived on a national level.
