It’s finally time for the ball to go up. The 2017-18 season tips off tomorrow all across the country and with everything that’s been going on off the court it will be nice to finally see some real games take place. After the 2016-17 season ended in early April I wrote a post asking for your help to improve both the site and my coverage of Providence basketball. With the help I received from the wonderful patrons who have signed up over the last 7 months I’ve been able to greatly enhance the site.
The calendar has turned to April and with last night’s result in the books it’s officially the offseason in college basketball for all 351 schools. The coaching carousel is in full swing and the recruiting wire is buzzing with de-commitments, re-commitments, transfers and more. Providence has had great success these last 4 years and I’ve been lucky enough to cover the team for the last 3. Before I get any further into this post I want to express my deep gratitude and appreciation to everyone that has visited the site, tweeted, emailed, messaged or discussed Providence hoops at a bar with me these last 1,170 days since pcbb1917.com went live back on January 21, 2014. There have been more than 1.24 million views here since then and I think that’s pretty cool for a fanbase of a small Catholic school in Rhode Island.
