Providence a 10-Seed in Joe Lunardi’s December 7th Bracket Release

Joe Lunardi updated his bracket at ESPN.com on Thursday and Providence remained in his field of 68, though they dropped one seed line since his last update on November 30th.

Providence Friarcast Episode 3: Does This Team Have Grit?

This week’s episode of the Providence Friarcast features a recap of Providence’s win over Rider and loss at URI, as well as a preview of their next two games against Brown and UMass. Mike, Brendan and Chris discuss the poor second half defense against Rider, the lack of toughness and grit at URI and whether or not there will be another big celebrity sighting at the Dunk after Evander Holyfield’s appearance for the Rider game.
