GoLocalProv: Things Are Looking Up At PC
I’ve heard the students are a little upset about the Ricky Ledo situation, to the point where apathy could be a problem. Chin up students! Season tickets are actually up, so follow the lead of the rest of Friartown!
Driscoll also told GoLocalProv.com that season ticket sales for men’s basketball have gone well and, despite the economy, the season ticket base is stronger than it was a year ago. “At last check we were probably about 400 up from last year and that includes attrition,” he said.
There is little doubt that the excitement of this year’s recruiting class which included McDonald’s All-American’s Kris Dunn and Ricky Ledo energized the fan base. And, even though neither will be on the floor to start the season, Dunn is expected to play sometime this winter while Ledo has pledged his commitment to PC after he was ruled not eligible to play his freshman year. Ledo first told GoLocalProv.com of his intention to stay at PC for 2 years, a commitment he confirmed in a statement released by the school last week.
Former Friar Marcus Douthit is now on Twitter. He plays in the Phillapines these days, and doesn’t want to leave for a chance at more money. The big man is 2nd all time in blocks at Providence College, only behind Marvin Barnes. You can see a list of other Friar alumni on Twitter here.
