    Providence Undefeated After Two Ivy League Wins

    Anyone who thought Keno Davis was bringing token Ivy League opposition into the Dunk to ease the Friars into their season was dead wrong. Although Providence defeated Dartmouth handily on Saturday, Nov. 13, the Friars barely escaped the clutches of the Yale Bulldogs, winning 58-55 on Monday, Nov. 15.

    Tate, Roberts, and Barnes Lead PC in Win Over UMass

    A year after their magical run in the WNIT Tournament last season, the Women’s Basketball Team tipped off its season in Philadelphia on Friday, Nov. 12, as the Friars took on Saint Joseph’s. The Friars hung close from the start and only trailed 30-23 at the break. Saint Joseph’s was able to push the lead to 15 early in the second half, but the Friars hung tough behind Teya Wright ’11, who scored 12 points for the Friars and also corralled 10 boards.

    The Sports Boss with Chris Torello

    There are three F’s of Thanksgiving: Food, Family, and Football—in that order. I do not mean to knock the family or football, but Thanksgiving is about the turkey, the gravy, the stuffing, the three different kinds of potatoes, the green bean casserole, and the pumpkin pie.

    Driscoll: “We’re Trying to Do It the Right Way”

    Here’s a recap of the week in Providence sports. The Men’s and Women’s Cross Country Teams—which do not have a practice facility or a track at PC—earned a bid to the NCAA Championship. The Men’s Soccer Team—who practices and plays at Glay Field, the equivalent of a high school soccer field—came one penalty kick away from winning a Big East Championship and subsequently earned a bid to the NCAA Championship.

    PCI

    The Men’s Basketball Team has a lot of impressive newcomers this year, between dunk champion Bryce Cotton ’14, redshirted big man Kadeem Batts ’14, and the other seven freshmen. But the newcomer that is going to make the biggest impact has to be Gerard Coleman ’14. Coleman comes in as an ESPN top 100 recruit, and possesses a sweet stroke from beyond the three point arc. Not only that, but Coleman is a slick 6’4″, which enables him to drive effectively into the paint, where he has an excellent ability to finish at the rim. Coleman is in the best position to excel, as he starts with Vincent Council ’13 in the backcourt. The two together create one of the fastest backcourt duos in the Big East. Two quick guards under Keno Davis’ fast breaking system is a scary thought, and Coleman will quickly become one of Council’s favorite targets as he sprints down the wing to either drive or put up a quick shot. Not only will he become a huge factor offensively for the Friars, but defensively Coleman provides headaches for opponents as his long, lanky arms enable him to swipe at the ball and block shots. When the Friars play their zone defense, smaller guards will be driven mad trying to throw passes over the long-limbed Coleman. Not only that, but his quickness is impeccable as opposing guards will discover this season when they try to slither by him. Coleman has a chance to become great here at PC and he should be ready to make an immediate impact on the team.

    With the Shootout Gone, PC Tries to Capitalize

    Women’s Hockey Head Coach Bob Deraney, an archetypically civil Division I hockey coach, is hardly the smug type. But in the wake of a weekend that saw a pair of knots drawn in two other Hockey East series—namely Boston University versus Vermont and Maine versus Northeastern—he did offer a blunt, told-you-so statement in defense of the long-gone shootout.
