This episode of the Providence Friarcast features a recap of Providence’s 2-0 MLK weekend in Big East play with the gang back together to discuss Providence’s win over DePaul on the road and their home victory over Butler on Monday. We talked the mic’d up broadcast at DePaul on Friday, how Ed Cooley has been focusing on shutting down the opponent’s top scorer and we previewed Providence’s next game against Creighton. We finished by revisiting an earlier podcast discussion from November: Rodney Bullock. Oh, and Emmitt Holt is back in school and Providence is now 1-0 with him back around the team.

Kevin McNamara of The Providence Journal is reporting on Twitter that Tuesday night’s game against DePaul that was scheduled for 9pm at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center will not be played Tuesday as scheduled. McNamara mentions in his tweet that “alternate plans being discussed today” which is in line with what Providence College’s Athletic Director Bob Driscoll said in a letter released Sunday night to media and season ticket holders.
In that letter, which was also posted to Friars.com, Driscoll said “Providence College is working with the Big East Conference, Fox Sports 1, DePaul Athletics, the State of Rhode Island and the Dunkin’ Donuts Center on the potential rescheduling of the men’s basketball game versus DePaul.” The Dunkin’ Donuts Center has a Fleetwood Mac concert scheduled for Wednesday night and Thursday is currently an open date but if the storm is as bad as it sounds then the concert may get pushed to Thursday night.
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.

Dear Friar Fans:
Due to the impending major snowstorm, which is predicted to hit Rhode Island on Monday night and Tuesday, Providence College is working with the Big East Conference, Fox Sports 1, DePaul Athletics, the State of Rhode Island and the Dunkin’ Donuts Center on the potential rescheduling of the men’s basketball game versus DePaul. The game, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 27 vs. DePaul at 9:00 p.m., could be seriously affected by this severe winter storm. The safety of our fans, staff and student-athletes is of the utmost importance. We hope to have a final decision on the date and the time of the game by Monday. When we have more information on the status of the game we will send an email to all season ticket holders and fans who have purchased tickets to this game.
All of us in Friartown appreciate your support and patience.
