In typical Big East fashion, the Providence Friars and the Xavier Musketeers played a tightly-contested game that featured nine ties and 11 lead changes--until the X-Men, led by Tyrique Jones, took control down the stretch. Providence (+5) missed three straight shots in the final ten seconds that would have earned an ATS win before succumbing 64-78.
The Providence ATS loss ruined a Perfect 45 for Mr. Jake 50 (40) who put up a TallBoy for his first GridCard win of the year. The Friars' loss also cost MW (38) a Mirror, Mirror--but he did edge Heart of a Hooligan (36) for the PGT win when the Lakers' ATS loss spoiled Hooligan's bid for perfection.
Six other players--including two rookies--posted Qualifying Scores: Butch (34), Fantasy legend (30), Zeke (29), kjh98 (29), AK (29) and Jamesnow (29).
