Welcome to the “Providence Crystal Ball”. What is PCB you ask? PCB is going to attempt to simulate every Providence game using a CPU vs. CPU matchup using “College Hoops 2K8”. College Hoops has been extremely accurate in predicting games, compiling a 4,789-7 record last year (unofficial number, give or take 4,000)
Well the pilot edition got off to a horrendous start when it predicted a huge win for the Friars. We all know how that one turned out.
This week let’s take a look how “College Basketball 2K8” predicts tonight’s game against Dartmouth of the Ivy League. So far PCB has a record of 0-1.
Note: I didn’t ask my cousin this week for the commentary because I wasn’t able to record until a few hours before the game.
Absolute trainwreck for the Big Green. EIGHT, that’s right EIGHT of 48 from the field, for a whopping 16% field goal percentage.
Brian McKenzie led the game in scoring with 20 points (and almost outscoring Dartmouth by himself).
Good Omens: PC out-rebounded Dartmouth 45-25
Bad Omens: PC shot 7/14 from the foul line.
Interesting Fact: Jamine Peterson saw some action in the game. Hmm, does that mean Kellogg’s knee injury is worse than we think? Or is it because I just forgot to drop Peterson from the game roster due to his possible red-shirting? (cue X-Files music)
