Pat Forde took a Providence question in his chat today on ESPN.com.
Matt (Boston): Come on, throw me some Friar talk, does 10-8 get it done?
Pat Forde: (2:52 PM ET ) Matt: How bout that Marvin Barnes, huh? And Pop Lewis! Oh, CURRENT Friar talk … I guess it would be tough to keep a Big East team with 10-8 on the outside, but Providence has had a very user-friendly schedule and not many wins against upper echelon Big East teams. Beating Louisville, Pitt or Villanova down the stretch would really help.
Nothing to see here. Move along now. They should just cut and paste their responses from earlier chats.
Totally unrelated to PC…check out this question.
John (Cincinnati, OH): RARE OVC QUESTION HERE: I don’t know if you’ve noticed (because seemingly nobody has) but UT-Martin has the second leading scorer in the nation in Lester Hudson. If they make it out of the OVC tournament (they’re in second now), can he lead a shocker in the tournament?
Pat Forde: (2:35 PM ET ) John: Rarer than a Jim Boeheim smile, big boy. But I am aware of Lester. If they can win the OVC tourney — uh, no, I don’t see Martin winning a game, unless it lands in the Tuesday play-in game. OVC hasn’t won an NCAA game since 1988.
Big boy?!? Huh?
