How #pcbb Can Boost Their RPI Today 2/7/14

There were two games of significance for RPI boostability last night for the Friars. URI fell to VCU and Marist took down Rider. With those two results PC’s RPI is now at 50 (was 51).

Three opportunities tonight for PC to get some RPI assistance.

Per Jerry Palm’s “Palm Reader”:

Here’s how PC can boost their RPI today:

Xavier Fans to Campout Tonight Before PC Game #pcbb

At Xavier they have something called “1831 Week” which, according to the Facebook page “is a new tradition where we the Xavier Community can celebrate our school and its existence. This week is designed to promote school spirit and our school’s virtues. ” As part of this “1831 Week” they are having a campout tonight outside the Cintas Center with give-aways, free food and a DJ until 1am but they are somehow supposed to stay warm/have fun without any alcohol (have a feeling this is a wink, wink type rule). One of the big raffle prizes for those that participate and stay through the night is a trip to NYC for the Big East Tournament (hotel included) for the winner and 3 friends. This is a pretty cool idea. Maybe PC would consider doing something like this on Slavin Lawn at some point.

#pcbb Links of the Day 2/7/14

Who was the Player of the Month in January?

David Fox: Even though McDermott is a virtual certainty for National Player of the Year, my top player of January is one of the few players in the Big East who can match McDermott’s scoring prowess. Bryce Cotton of Providence has been one of the most underrated players in the country, but the Friars are on the precipice of their first NCAA bid in a decade thanks to Cotton’s play of late. Cotton averaged 21.7 points and 6.3 rebounds in a month that saw Providence beat Georgetown, Creighton and Butler. Even more, Cotton has been a workhorse, averaging 41.1 minutes per game thanks to a double-overtime game against St. John’s in which he played all 50 minutes. –

Dear PC Students: Keep It Up #pcbb

Dear PC Students,

You took a lot of heat over the last week. Most of it pretty deserved. Your attendance at basketball games at the Dunk has been pretty dismal. But something crazy happened on Tuesday night. You showed up. And you stood up. And you were loud. I know the guys couldn’t finish off the comeback but wasn’t that comeback in the 2nd half a lot of fun? Did you feel the electricity the Dunk can have if you are there in force and making your presence known? The rest of the crowd feeds off of you. If you stand up and yell and start chants, the other fans in the building will join you. You saw first hand how loud the Dunk can be when everyone is standing and cheering on our Friars. Opposing players should want to HATE playing in front of you at the Dunk. St. John’s player Jakarr Sampson said “this is a hard place to play. They got really good fans. The crowd was into it. I feel like that really brought them back to life, the crowd.”

Tuesday night was great. But there are 3 home games left on the schedule. Only 3 more opportunities to see this team and great group of seniors, Ted Bancroft, Kadeem Batts, Bryce Cotton and Lee Goldsbrough, play at the Dunk. So my message to you is this: Keep it up.

Go Friars!
