Prior to last night’s game against Charlotte, Providence College President, Rev. Brian Shanley and Providence College Athletic Director, Bob Driscoll, held a press conference to discuss the historic day that the ‘new’ Big East had. Wednesday morning, the Presidents of the ‘new’ Big East schools gathered in New York City to announce the formation of the 10 team conference (Adding Butler, Creighton and Xavier), as well as a vitally important $500 million television deal with Fox Sports and the rights to hold their post season tournament at Madison Square Garden.
FriarBasketball.com caught up with Shanely after the conclusion of the press conference to hear additional thoughts from the school’s President.
