2016-17 Team Awards Given Out at End of Season Banquet


Providence hosted fans, parents, alumni and friends at their end of season banquet for the 2016-17 men’s basketball team on Saturday night. The event was held at the Omni Hotel and featured a visit from recently available 2017 top-35 recruit Makai Ashton-Langford and his family.
