Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Providence coach Ed Cooley was worried about his team's psyche coming into this one. Now may be at Red Alert level. Friars lose at Marquette and now face Georgetown back home -- where they are 1-4 in last five at The Dunk. Ed Cooley did masterful job hiding deficiencies early, but lack of talent around Dunn and Bentil evident now.

Marquette hands Providence another loss

The Golden Eagles took down the 20th-ranked Friars 96-91 in double overtime despite a career-high 42 points from Ben Bentil. Providence has lost 4 of 5 and dropped to a tie for 6th in the Big East. Box score

Ben Bentil with 36 and 10 -- and still less than 100 percent with that ankle injury. Problem is he and Kris Dunn need more help.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Ben Simmons has taken three shots in the first half of this matchup against South Carolina but foul trouble and SC's defense have been factors. Still, Simmons has to hit another gear in the second half. That's just the expectation when you're the projected No. 1 pick.

South Carolina on top of LSU at the break

Sindarius Thornwell scored 11 in the half to pace South Carolina to a 39-25 advantage over LSU, which currently sits atop the SEC standings. Ben Simmons tallied five points and four assists in the half while battling foul trouble. The Gamecocks are 16-0 when leading at half this season. Live on ESPN2 & WatchESPN
