According to the Marquette Tribune, Vincent Council is expected to return Saturday against Marquette
The Friars are expected to have junior guard Vincent Council back after the point guard sat out against No. 1/1 Syracuse for undisclosed reasons on Saturday. Council leads the Friars in points (16.4) and assists (6.7) and averages 16.3 points and 5.5 assists in four career games against Marquette.
Wilson, who has provided valuable minutes on the defensive end, said stopping a player like Council is vital to slowing Providence’s offensive rhythm.
“If you play him hard enough and pressure him constantly, that shakes up their offense and wears him down,” Wilson said. “Any team falls apart when their point guard isn’t playing as well.”
We still don’t know any of the details of what Council did to trigger the mini-suspension, but I’m sure Ed Cooley has everything under control. After all, it’s Ed Cooley Bobblehead night. You can’t disrespect your own bobblehead night by not playing your only point guard.
Perhaps we’ll learn more from the Ed Cooley Radio Show tonight, which airs from Chelo’s Hometown Bar & Grill at 7 PM.
