Since I got back late last night (and damn that Longhammer IPA they sell at the ROCK!) and don’t have the time this morning, I am unfortunately not going to have the usual full roundup.  Good news is that Ray Floriani (a great freelance basketball writer) is going to guest post a stat focused article sometime today or tomorrow.

Here are some highlights, and links around the web of the Providence Friars 98-93 OT win against Seton Hall.

In a game that could have gone the other way, the Friars squeezed into overtime and then pulled away and beat Seton Hall, 98-93. McDermott made one of two free throws to tie the game with 10.5 seconds to play in regulation. After a key defensive stop forced overtime, the Friars outlasted the Pirates in the extra session and grabbed the big win. – “So far, so good, but now the schedule gets tough for PC”

After winning five of seven games against several of the Big East’s also-rans, the schedule is about to turn much more difficult for the Friars in the coming weeks. – “Seton Hall loses to Providence in overtime”

As soon as the ball came loose from Eugene Harvey’s hands on the final play of regulation, Seton Hall coach Bobby Gonzalez kicked the ground and spun around in frustration, knowing he likely just watched his team lose again.
