Providence Guards Drew Edwards and Maliek White to Travel to Spain in August

Providence announced on Wednesday that junior guard Drew Edwards and sophomore guard Maliek White will travel to Madrid, Spain in August as members of the 2017 USA East Coast team. Edwards and White will play for Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown during this 5-day trip from August 7th through the 12th.

The USA East Coast team will have a training camp on August 5th and 6th and will take on national teams from Japan, Mexico, Senegal and Venezuela while in Spain. Edwards and Jalen Lindsey did a similar trip in the summer of 2015 with Global Sports Academy. That trip was to Croatia. This year’s trip should be especially good for Edwards who missed most of last season after a slow recovery from offseason knee surgery that occurred about a year ago.

Cooley: Redshirting Drew Edwards “definitely a possibility”

For those Friar fans wondering where Drew Edwards has been lately — he sat out Providence’s final non-conference game against Boston College last week — Ed Cooley may have hinted at a potential answer: Edwards might get shut down to redshirt. The possibility was raised during the Big East coaches media teleconference on Tuesday morning. Cooley mentioned that Edwards has struggled to get back up to speed following his offseason knee surgery.

Chin Up, Friar Fans. Big East Play is Looming

Friar fans, you need to fight that feeling. No, not the one REO Speedwagon sings about. I’m talking about that pit in your stomach that’s been there since around 6pm on December 23rd. Despite a rather unceremonious ending to the non-conference part of their schedule, the Providence Friars had a good start to the season. 10-3. That’s better than the 9-4 I predicted and they certainly are further along at this point than I anticipated, losing to the lowly Boston College Eagles notwithstanding. In a year that was supposed to be all about development of young talent to bring them along for future years this has been a fun group to watch and some of those green players appear ready to help right now, notably Kalif Young.
