Game Recap: PC Pretty Much Guarantees Needing Championship Run in the Big East Tourney with Loss to Georgetown

Providence Friars 71 (16-9) - Georgetown Hoyas 83 (15-9)   I probably sound like a broken record, but there's only so much PC can do with such a limited amount of contributors.  Bryce Cotton (31 points), Tyler Harris (13 points), & Kadeem Batts (14 points) combined to score 82% of the points for the Friars. … Continue reading Game Recap: PC Pretty Much Guarantees Needing Championship Run in the Big East Tourney with Loss to Georgetown
