Here are some Providence news and notes from the week, including coverage from Big East Media Day, the return of the PC/UConn rivalry, a shout out to Ed Cooley from Kenpom and more.
Big East Media Day Coverage
Big East Media Day was once again held on the floor at Madison Square Garden for the second year in a row. The league would love to do it every year, but it’s dependent on the other MSG tenants’ schedules, namely the Knicks and Rangers. Kalif Young was supposed to be the fourth Friar player in attendance, but he remains sidelined by headache issues. The quick recap is that Providence was picked 4th in the preseason poll and Kyron Cartwright and Rodney Bullock were named to the preseason Second Team All-Big East.
