Providence Friars Look to Take Next Step in 2017-18

Providence’s 2017-18 season is just 4 days away with the season kicking off, along with everyone else in college basketball, on November 10th. The Friars will play their first game of the season on campus at Alumni Hall. It will be the first non-exhibition game that Providence has played at Alumni Hall since 1972, the year before the Dunkin’ Donuts Center — then the Providence Civic Center — opened downtown. The preview for the 2016-17 season read much differently than this one will. Providence was picked 9th out of 10 in the preseason Big East Coaches poll last October, only to finish 3rd and make a school-record fourth straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.
