Duke University

Providence College

After besting the University of Southern California, Providence College faces the top-seeded University of North Carolina on Saturday as March Madness continues.

In Providence, Yale faces it's own tough contest against Duke.

Both teams would make big headlines if they win Saturday, although analysts have said PC is unlikely to pull off a victory. Still, in the world of college basketball, RIPR sports blogger Mike Szostak says "it's a tournament that any of the top teams can win any team can win." 

Since the 1950s, Providence College basketball has been one of the great story lines in all of college sports, a New England version of the cinematic Hoosiers.

This tale flat-lined for too many years. But make no mistake: the Friars are back to the future, playing a marquee game tonight at Madison Square Garden, where the PC hoop legend really began all those years ago, in the early 1960s, with the National Invitational Tournament, when that post-season playoff at the Garden overshadowed the NCAA’s tournament.
