Upcoming Events in Friartown

CooleyClapping1

The Providence College basketball season may be over, but there are several events in the upcoming months in which Friar fans will have a keen interest. The following list is not all-inclusive, and we will be adding dates and events as more information becomes available.

APRIL

April 13th is the date for the Annual Providence College Basketball Banquet being held at the Omni Providence (formerly the Westin). Friarbasketball.com’s Kevin Farrahar and Craig Leighton will be on hand and we look forward to meeting many of you there. We love to talk Friars hoops and are also interested in any ideas that you may have for the Friarbasketball.com site heading into next year.

April 17th marks the first date of the Regular Signing Period for Division I basketball recruits. This period will run until May 15th. If the Friars have any more incoming recruits for the Class of 2013 they will need to sign them during this period in order for the National Letter of Intent to be binding.

In addition, the final Ed Cooley radio show of the year will be broadcasting live from the banquet from 7:00-8:00pm on WEEI 103.7.com.

April is also the month that starts the AAU basketball season with several major AAU events taking place. April 19th-21st and April 26th-28th are two evaluation periods in April where coaches are allowed to attend AAU events. These dates in particular will have several major AAU tournaments taking place, highlighted by EYBL tournaments in Los Angeles and Hampton, VA. Both Expressions Elite and BABC will be participating in the EYBL events this year.

Many of these EYBL events are streamed over the internet. I will post any streaming information as soon as it becomes available.

MAY

May 10-12th are the dates for the annual Providence Jamfest. This is a great opportunity for local PC Hoops fans to catch some of the top AAU teams and players in the area. Last year some of the players at the Jamfest included Kaleb Joseph, Jalen Adams, Jared Terrell, Abdul Malik Abu, and Paschal Chuckwu. Details on the Providence Jamfest will be available at this link: http://hoopgroup.com/team-tournaments/grassroots-events/jam-fests/providence-hoop-group-jam-fest/

JUNE

June 3rd is the date for the annual Cox Sports Friar Golf Classic at the Warwick Country Club. Look for more information as the event gets closer.

JULY

The month of July marks the heart of the summer AAU season. Many major tournaments are played throughout the month, highlighted by the EYBL Championship at the Peach Jam July 10th-14th. More information on the Summer AAU events will be available as the events get closer.

AUGUST

August 8th-10th are the dates for the annual Providence Fullcourt Boardroom Summer Weekend of Stars. This year there will be a special honoring of Bruce “Soup” Campbell during the events. I highly encourage all Friar fans to attend one or more of these events as it is a great opportunity to reconnect with some great Friar legends. More information on the events will be available as the events get closer.
