Friar Friday News & Notes: Big East Media Day Edition

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.

Friar Friday News & Notes: David Duke Commitment Day Edition

Here are some Providence news and notes from the week, including David Duke commitment day, an Emmitt Holt update and more.

Duke to Commit Friday Evening

This column has been a place for updates and news that have happened over the last week, but I’ll lead off this Friday with something that hasn’t happened yet. 2018 Cushing Academy and Mass Rivals guard David Duke announced on Wednesday that he will commit Friday evening.

We learned later via Kevin McNamara at the Providence Journal that the announcement is expected to come via Duke’s social media accounts. The former Classical High School hero is down to the hometown Friars and Buzz Williams’ Virginia Tech Hokies. The steam picked up on 247Sports Crystal Ball page on Thursday with all but one previous Virginia Tech pick flipping to Providence and some new picks coming out of the clouds for the Friars. I’ve remained optimistic that Duke would end up in black and white. We’ll see if that comes to fruition for the athletic guard who turned 18 on Friday.

Each Monday I’ll do my best to answer some of your questions. The below are actual e-mails and tweets from readers. In some cases I have cleaned up the questions for grammar and clarity.

I got lots of questions about Providence native and top 2018 recruiting target David Duke. Let’s start there…

Tim C. asks:

Updates on David Duke? When should we expect a decision? Are the Friars still the front runners after he scheduled official visits to Florida and Virginia Tech?
