"The black hole that was depicted for the first time this week in in an image produced in a landmark experiment has been named by a language professor in Hawaii.

University of Hawaii-Hilo Hawaiian professor Larry Kimura named the cosmic object Powehi, The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Thursday. (...)


Dempsey was among 200 scientists who worked to capture an image of the massive black hole in the M87 galaxy nearly 54 million light-years from Earth.

Dempsey said Powehi is an excellent match for the scientific explanation provided to Kimura."

(The Guardian.)

Should there be the preposition "for" instead of "to" in Dempsey said Powehi is an excellent match for the scientific explanation provided to Kimura?

"provide to" and "provide for" are both valid combinations. The meanings are slightly different. In this case "to" is appropriate.
