    LAX Seeks First Win Against No. 9/10 G’town

    For the 2010 Men’s Lacrosse Team, the upstart of this year’s spring season has been a highly anticipated one. This season, the 31st in the Friars’ storied history, marks the inaugural season for the Friars in the highly competitive, and rather hostile, Big East Conference. Adjusting to the style of play that accompanies the Big East (after previously playing in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference—MAAC), the Friars are looking forward to the challenge of a rigorous Big East schedule.

    Women’s Hoops Earns NIT Bid

    It was no way to end a season that saw the Women’s Basketball Team earn more overall wins and more conference wins than in recent history. It was the Friars’ first winning season in nearly 20 years, but two losses to close out the regular season, a bye in the first round of the Big East Tournament, and a loss against Syracuse in tournament play were written into the books as the final pages of an otherwise banner season.

    Same Old Story at Big East Tournament

    Any fan who came into the year expecting the men’s basketball team to be a defensive juggernaut is crazy. With a roster that included seven new players and a lack of size down low, it was to be expected that PC would struggle on the defensive end. However, throughout the course of the season the hope was that the squad would gradually improve in running Head Coach Keno Davis’ zone press and matchup zone defense. After a 109-106 loss to Seton Hall in the first round of the Big East Tournament in which ESPN analyst Jay Bilas repeatedly bashed Davis and the Providence defense, Friar fans enter the off-season wondering when, if ever, PC will be able to keep its opponents from putting up outrageous numbers?

    People love stories; and there’s no better place to write them on a world stage than at the Olympics. With only three days left in the 2010 Vancouver games, most of the stories have already been scrawled into the history books, some in triumph and some in sour defeat. With the United States sitting atop the medals table with 28, here are some of the stories that have come to define their Olympics in Gastown.

    Marandola’s PC Legacy Is One for the Ages

    You might not know it if you were to pass her on campus. You might not know it if you were to see her teaching at Lincoln Middle School during the day. But you would certainly know, if you were to see her in action at Mullaney Gymnasium, that Chelsea Marandola ’10 is one of the most talented women’s basketball players ever to play for Providence College.
