It’s a quiet Tuesday in Friartown, don’t you think?

While we have a lull in between Marquette and UConn I came across a post on Scout from user Sonar who had posted the full 45 minutes of the overtime win the 1987 Providence Friars had against Austin Peay in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Most you remember this tournament because of a little thing called the Final Four, which Providence was featured in against in-conference rival Syracuse. With Billy The Kid bombing away from three and a young Rick Pitino on the sidelines, this was truly a landmark era.

…Not that I was…you know…alive…for any of it…but hey, what can ya do?

Cause screw me, right?

So sit back, all the way back to March of 1987 to be exact (lulz) and let Bad Marvin’s Time Machine show you how a Providence Friars team competes in an NCAA Tournament game!

    My favorite memory of the game was when the Austin Peay fans were chanting “let’s go Peay”.
