Keno Davis refuses to get down but does know his team has some work to do.
“We have to understand how we can improve as a ballclub,” the first-year coach said after his Providence Friars lost their second straight Wednesday night. “We’ve got a chance to win these games. We’re pretty close right now but we’ve got some weaknesses.”
He wants his team to get “a little bit tougher” and knows the Friars have allowed 93.8 points per game over the last four games; with all four opponents scoring at least 93. But it should be remembered that after the 98-93 overtime win at Seton Hall, PC did play the Nos. 15, 2 and 17 teams in the country. The Friars beat No. 15 Syracuse, got hammered by No. 2 UConn just before the Huskies became No. 1 and then lost to No. 17 Villanova.
