Game Recap: #3 Xavier Beats Providence 84-74 for their First Ever Big East Title

Providence Friars 74 (18-12) #3 Xavier Musketeers 84 (26-4) This was basically a no-lose game for Providence.  It was a great opportunity for them to get another signature win for their NCAA resume, but if they lost, it's really not a big deal because they were playing at #3 Xavier's place and on their Senior … Continue reading Game Recap: #3 Xavier Beats Providence 84-74 for their First Ever Big East Title

Providence Friars 74 (18-11) Georgetown Hoyas 69 (15-12) Not 1, Not 2, Not 3, Not 4, Not 5, Not 6, Not 7....but 8!!!  Make it 8 wins in a row for the Providence Friars against the Georgetown Hoyas.  The Hoyas might just be my second favorite team in the Big East if they keep letting … Continue reading Game Recap: PC Friars Take Down Georgetown for the 8th Straight Time, Winning 74-69

Game Recap: Seton Hall Beats the Friars Over 2 Days After the Dunk Becomes a Slip-And-Slide

Providence Friars 77 (17-11) Seton Hall Pirates 89 (19-9) This was a weird game.

Providence Friars 54 (17-10) Butler Bulldogs 69 (18-10) Recently, whenever the Friars have played Butler, I get a look at Kelan Martin's stats coming into the game and his play never seems to match the stats.  I did some digging into his numbers against the Friars before the game and came up with this: Kelan … Continue reading Game Recap: PC Friars Shoot Like Crap, Fall at Butler 69-54

Game Recap: PC Friars Get a Much Needed Signature Win Over #3 Nova at Home 76-71

Providence Friars 76 (17-9) #3 Villanova Wildcats 71 (23-3) It's pretty hard to figure out who this Providence team is on a game to game basis.  They get blown out by lowly DePaul at home and then come right back and beat the #3 team in the Nation the very next game.  It's not really … Continue reading Game Recap: PC Friars Get a Much Needed Signature Win Over #3 Nova at Home 76-71

Game Recap: DePaul Humiliates the Friars at Home, 80-63

Providence Friars 63 (16-9) DePaul Blue Demons 80 (10-14) What is it with Providence and DePaul.  The Blue Demons have beaten us once in each of the past three seasons.  For some reason, the Friars just drop the ball when they need to beat these cellar-dwellers. The last two times were at least at DePaul, … Continue reading Game Recap: DePaul Humiliates the Friars at Home, 80-63

Game Recap: PC Friars Make it Two Wins in a Row at Home, Beat Georgetown 73-69

Providence Friars 73 (16-8) Georgetown Hoyas 69 (13-10) First year Georgetown Coach Patrick Ewing coached his first game against the Friars and even thought the Hoyas lost, I was impressed to see how competitive the team already is.  They are a lot closer to taking that next step and becoming a threat in the Big … Continue reading Game Recap: PC Friars Make it Two Wins in a Row at Home, Beat Georgetown 73-69

Game Recap: PC Friars Win at Marquette for the 2nd Year in a Row, 77-75

Providence Friars 77 (15-8) Marquette Golden Eagles 75 (13-10) Whenever Providence and Marquette square off against each other, the games seem to become instant classics.  Whether its the game from earlier this year where Marquette guard Markus Howard dropped 52 at Providence en route to an overtime win or last year's first ever win for … Continue reading Game Recap: PC Friars Win at Marquette for the 2nd Year in a Row, 77-75
