  • Sports Week in Review

    Sports Week in Review

    By Benjamin Larsen Red Sox-Yankees: It was a good start but a rough finish to the weekend as the Red Sox dropped three of four to the New York Yankees. The Red Sox bounced back valiantly following a miserable home-opening series last weekend by winning two of three against the Texas Rangers. The momentum didn’t continue, though as the Bronx Bombers beat Clay Buchholz, John Lackey and Felix Doubront. Just totally normal stuff on Michael Pineda's hand right here. pic.twitter.com/ZRAiMHu3Jf […]

    Cooley Addresses Off-Season Needs

    When it comes to recruiting, there really is no off-season.   At the recent Cox Sports end-of-the season awards luncheon, we caught up with Providence College Head Coach Ed Cooley who addressed some of the team’s current needs.  Obviously, the loss of Bryce Cotton and Kadeem Batts leave a huge hole for a team that landed in the NCAA Tourney for the first time in ten years. The recent addition of 5-11 Compton, CA guard Kyron Cartwright along with frontline help from ESPN 100 prospects seven […]

  • NCAA Hockey: Looking back, Looking forward

    NCAA Hockey: Looking back, Looking forward

    By Jayson Hron The last three NCAA tournament appearances for Providence had all ended in opening-round disappointment, be it single-game losses (2000-01; 1995-96) or best-of-three stumbles (1990-91). But bolstered by a four-goal cushion late in last Friday’s NCAA East Regional opener against Quinnipiac, it was apparent that Providence would exorcise the unpleasant trend of quick exits. Aficionados remembered the last time Providence advanced past the first round, back when Debbie Gibson was enjoying a three-week run atop the Billboard Hot […]

  • Dayton Overcomes Odds in NCAA Tourney

    Dayton Overcomes Odds in NCAA Tourney

    Dayton Overcomes Odds in NCAA Tourney By Benjamin Larsen We sure do love a good Cinderella. Last year, it was Florida Gulf Coast — or Dunk City for those well informed. Before that, there was Gonzaga, Virginia Commonwealth, George Mason and Davidson. And who can forget Butler’s consecutive runs to the National Championship game? With Dayton’s unexpected and awe-inspiring run this March, college basketball fans can surely add another team to the Mount Rushmore of Cinderellas. But, how surprising is […]

  • Friars Look to Make Noise

    Friars Look to Make Noise

    The Hockey East semifinals didn’t go according to plan for the PC Friars but they’re shaking that off and looking forward in every way.  Coach Leaman has his eye on the future and he’s not so interested in the past but rather the future of his still, young team. Like most collegiate hockey teams late in the season, they’re battle worn but still improving and that’s what they’ll take into the NCAA playoffs this Friday in Bridgeport, Ct. Mark Jankowski and […]

    There’s Something Special About this Team

    As the 11th seeded Friars jet for San Antonio and a NCAA Tournament matchup with North Carolina, we look back more than five months ago, at the Big East’s Media Day in New York. Providence College Seniors Kadeem Batts and Bryce Cotton were the undisputed leaders, and Cooley knew they had the makeup to take this team to new heights. To see how things worked out for the Friars in the Big East, click here.
