PROVIDENCE — There are games against more noteworthy opponents on the horizon, yet it’s probably a safe bet to assume that Providence College basketball fans have been eyeing Tuesday’s game against Colgate for quite some time.
The night will feature the long-anticipated debuts of two Friars. In freshman Kris Dunn, PC is hitching its wagon to a point guard, a critical position that suffered a major hit when Vincent Council went down in a heap in the season opener.
