PROVIDENCE â No matter how you slice it, Providenceâs 79-76 defeat to Big East bottom feeder DePaul was a tough pill for Keno Davis and the Friars to swallow.
Davisâ post game press conference was far from a ray of sunshine, as the third-year coach sat silent at the podium for several minutes before trying to explain what has to be the Friarsâ most disheartening loss of the season â one coming against a DePaul outfit that coming had had dropped 25 consecutive Big East games.
âItâs a tough lesson for a young team to learn,â said a clearly shell-shocked Davis.
For three local teams straddling along the same line, the idiomatic expression âthereâs no tomorrowâ definitely applies.
CUMBERLAND â In states where wrestling holds a prominent place in the high school sports winter season -- Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Iowa come to mind â people flock to big dual-meets in large numbers. When two unbeaten teams meet, fans and coaches and former wrestlers fill the stands, contributing to a raucous setting not often seen in Rhode Island.
PROVIDENCE â The country got up close with the nether regions of the Big East Conference on Thursday night.
In a nationally-televised contest involving two teams just trying to stay afloat in a Top-25 dominated lead, DePaul held on for 79-76 win over the Providence College Friars before 5,021 disappointed fans at The Dunk.
PC trailed 77-76 with seven seconds remaining when Gerard Coleman had a pass broken up in the lane by DePaulâs Jeremiah Kelly, who hit two free throws with less than a second remaining to secure the win.
