    Friars’ Rally Is Not Enough to Top BC Eagles

    PCI: Has Miami’s new Big Three been overy-hyped, or will Lebron and Co. live up to expectations?

    It is not a good thing when your dog is in heat. When this happens, owners often report erratic behavior and stains on the furniture, among other things. It is not a good thing to have LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh on the Heat either. Since this has happened, fans have reported ball-hogging, lack of chemistry, and disappointing results. Of the 30 teams in the NBA, the Miami Heat rank 16th in points per game, 16th in rebounds per game, 22nd in assists per game, and second in points allowed per game. Currently, their position is third in the Southeast division of the Eastern conference with an overall record of 15-8.

    PC Beats St. Pete’s, but Cinderella Season Comes to an End

    Perhaps no one word can fully encapsulate the Men’s Soccer Team’s exhilarating 22-game season. From their remarkable resurgence in the second half of their campaign, to their breathtaking run straight to the Big East Championship game, the Friars have embodied all that is the Men’s Soccer Program: resiliency, grit, and perseverance. Unfortunately, this magical season came to an end as the men’s soccer team fell to Ohio State University 2-1 on Sunday, Nov. 21, in an NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship Second Round match played at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. The Friars finished a historic and electrifying season with a 13-6-3 record.
