Friars To Unveil New Court

Tuesday, October 22, 2013


These are exciting times for Providence College men's basketball fans.  Coming off of a strong showing in last year's NIT, Friars head coach Ed Cooley is set to add some new and talented players to his roster in the form of both transfers and incoming freshman.  

The Friars are also set to begin play in the brand spanking new basketball-only Big East Conference which is a return to a time more than 30 years ago when the influence of big time college football had no impact whatsoever on the conference.

We also now have evidence that PC will be sporting a new look with the Dave Gavitt Court they play on inside the Dunkin' Donuts Center downtown.  Gone is the predominant color of black all the way around the floor.  It has been replaced with silver or gray  which is now accented with black.  It is a sharp new look for the start of what PC fans hope will be an exciting new era of basketball for the tradition-rich program.

Thanks for the update!!! Have not seen many PC updates at all in PROJO lately. Anyway, actually got to meet Coach Cooley for the 1st time a couple weeks ago!! Hot S#@t really!! Lost 75 pounds. Very energetic, lots of positive energy. He said ticket sales have gone up over 30%!! I've got a great idea, why don't you give me your press pass and I will impersonate you and sit in the press row once the Big East season starts!! Great idea hey!!!!!

That won't work because when they see how bad of a golfer you are, they'll know that it's not me!

Thanks for showing the new Friars court. But, Mr. Cordischi, I see that you are still up to your old biased and incomplete reporting.

Maybe you missed that URI is also debuting a new court this season.I would suggest you go down to Kingston to see it for yourself, but silly me, I forgot you probably need a GPS to find Kingston.

I'm really looking forward to your astute analysis this season especially given that Xavier Munford last season didn't make your all RI team, but then he did make the first team by US Basketball Writers District One which includes all D1 players in the six state region. I didn't see Matt Sullivan mentioned anywhere!!

P.S. BTW, The Rams court is better looking.
