Big East PC Friars UCONN Huskies

For Friars and Huskies, A New Chapter

On March 9, 2013, UConn played under the Big East banner for the last time. Though the postseason was set to begin days later, the Huskies would get no last trip to Madison Square Garden, nor would they get a bid to any postseason tournament. Their season was ending there, in Gampel Pavilion, along...

What’s Next for Zion?

Hey, did you hear? Duke is out of the NCAA Tournament. Yup. It's true. After someone made the claim that March is ruled by chaos and that Duke would be unwise to try and coast despite being incredibly favored to win the whole thing, the Blue Devils got bounced by Michigan State in a single-point...

No Team is Unstoppable, Not Even Zion and Duke

Once again, the Duke Blue Devils have stayed true to the NCAA mantra and “survived and advanced" past ACC foe Virginia Tech into the Elite 8. Much like the UCF Golden Knights before them, the Hokies failed on a (pretty open) last second tip-in that would have forced an OT with Duke to potentially taken...

March Sadness: Coping with Michigan’s Brutal Defeat

I don't know if there was a definitive point where Michigan's fate was sealed on Thursday night against Texas Tech. It could have been the 16 points scored in the first half, or the 5% shooting from three, but you couldn't have predicted these things as a the game unfolded. It was, in some...

PC Friars Carry Disappointments and Heart into Regular Season Closer

The Providence Friars had their backs against the wall this season. They weren't quite out of the conversation, but they had ground they desperately needed to make up. It was going to take winning in the conference as well as some noise in the Big East Tournament if they realistically wanted to turn their...

PC Friars Laying the Groundwork for a Longshot Dance and a Better 2020

Leave it to the Providence Friars to keep things interesting in late February. While many teams are feeling good about which side of the bubble they're on, and a few are playing to get on the right side of the bubble, the Providence Friars are the "chaotic neutral" team that seem to follow no discernible...

10 Iconic Rides from Ecto-1 to Doc Brown’s DeLorean

When I was at the tender age of six I knew exactly what car I wanted when I grew up: I wanted the Batmobile from Tim Burton's 1989 comic book masterpiece, Batman. Now, at 30, I want the Batmobile even more than ever. But that was just the first in many cars through the history of...

PC Friars: Show Me The Confidence and Leadership

This past Sunday, I (along with the rest of America) saw the New England Patriots win their sixth Super Bowl. For me, it was equal parts incredible (seriously, nobody gets tired of winning and I won't apologize for it) and shocking. All throughout the regular season I didn't think the Pats had it in...

A Fresh Dose of Friars Optimism

After Providence got their first Big East win over Seton Hall, I felt comfortable with the prospect of them going 1-1 on their two game road trip to Wisconsin and Ohio, with a loss at Marquette being the most likely loss and a win at Xavier. Still a tall order, but manageable. It would...
