Friars Feast on #5 Musketeers

Xavier may have given the Friars a run for their money in the paint, but at the end of the day it was the Friars who ate the heartiest on the stat line, beating the Musketeers 81-72. Xavier not only ate Providence’s lunch in the paint, they had a buffet. The fifth-ranked Musketeers made...

Friar Weekly: A Tale of Two Friars

The Providence Friars are 1-1 in Big East play. Splitting the road trip that spanned from Queens to Omaha leaving Friar fans feeling emotional highs and lows, and there’s been plenty to discuss. The conversation, however, has been almost about two different teams. The team that dismantled St. John’s with a high octane offense that...

Friar Weekly: Will the Friars Dance?

I don’t get to see as many games live as I used to, so when I had the chance to drive down to Mohegan Sun to see the Friars play the Houston Cougars I didn’t hesitate. There were two trains of thought going into this game: the first was that the Friars, despite injuries, would...

Friar Weekly: Winning is (Not) the Only Thing that Matters

So, the Providence Friars did it. After a week of rest and recuperation from injuries, tough outings, and a 7-3 record, the Friars overcame Stony Brook’s onslaught of 3-point shots to win their eighth game. The win came on a pair of last-second free throws from Rodney Bullock, who went 2-2 and sealed a...

Friar Weekly: So…Now What?

As it turns out, the Friars may be in a tougher situation than originally anticipated. Providence, which was selected fourth in the Big East preseason and an anticipated Sweet 16 program, may not be who they were thought to be. Since the beginning of the season the Friars have struggled with the exception of a few...

Friar Weekly: Will the Real PC Please Stand Up?

In the 1-1 effort this week from the Providence Friars, something has seemed abundantly clear: this team lacks an identity. Head Coach Ed Cooley said as much himself after the Rider game, talking about the lack of grit that this team is currently playing with, noting that until the mental and physical toughness is there...

Friar Weekly: PC/URI Smack Talk Almost as Good as the Game

Welcome to Friar Weekly! This week I take a look at the two vastly different wins PC earned over Belmont and Boston College, how PC’s ugly win over Belmont indicates a culture change, my plea for Dajour Dickens to be ready, and discuss how much I love Twitter fights between PC and URI fans! First...

Can Playing Madden Make You a Better Football Player?

I have been playing video games my entire life. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've saved Princess Peach from the clutches of Bowser, freed the land of Hyrule from Ganon, and liberated Raccoon City from a massive zombie outbreak. Growing up, however, I was told that these games were largely...
