Friar Basketball

Weekend Roundup

Xavier at PC Xavier Athletics

A roundup of the weekend that was in Providence and the Big East…

The Friars had maybe their worst effort of the season in a 75-61 loss to Xavier. They were outscored by 20 points in the second half.

Ian Steele provided a glimpse of Ed Cooley’s press conference. The coach said he was “stunned.”

Here is the entire presser from Brendan McGair, as well as McGair’s game story.

Kevin McNamara summed this one up perfectly. with a look at the challenges establishing a rotation this year.

There were dunks on Saturday. Lots and lots of Xavier dunks.

Never been a fan of booing college teams.

Apparently, “road kill” is a thing in Ohio.

Xavier’s Tyrique Jones was a force in Saturday’s win. He is a Connecticut native who played prep ball at Vermont Academy. Jones teamed with Bruce Brown to win the NEPSAC AA title, defeating a Cushing Academy group that featured Friar point guard Makai Ashton-Langford.

FoxSports produced a powerful segment on Jones and how he rebounded from losing his father at age four.

Kris Dunn still has love for the Friars, while Bryce Cotton stars in Australia.

St. John’s came back from 19 down to defeat Villanova Sunday night. It was the Johnnies’ first win over Nova at MSG since 2002.

Cooley spoke on the Big East and its future after PC played at St. John’s last weekend.
