Check out the student season tickets this year. This will fit in quite well on my “Ed Cooley Yelling” Pinterest Board.
If you didn’t know already, every Friar is eligible to play in the Mal Brown game. Neener, neener, neener. You can’t touch us here, NCAA!
The Fanfest will feature the annual Mal Brown intrasquad scrimmage at Noon in the newly renovated Mullaney Gymnasium with the 2012-13 men’s basketball team led by Head Coach Ed Cooley. All members of the Friar men’s basketball team will participate in the intrasquad scrimmage, including 2012-13 Preseason First Team All-BIG EAST Selection Vincent Council, LaDontae Henton and Bryce Cotton, as well as, newcomers Ricky Ledo, Josh Fortune, Carson Desrosiers and Tyler Harris.
Sometimes the Mal Brown game can foreshadow a season’s performance. LaDontae Henton showed Friar fans right from the start what kind of productive player he could be, scoring a game high 18 points with a perfect 4-4 from three point range. Other times, it could be a complete utter fluke like two years ago when Dre Evans scored 18 points and dished out 5 assists. Evans ended up only scoring 45 total points in his short Providence career, which was about 44 more than the number of readable things he posted on Twitter. It’s fun to see the team finally play after waiting all offseason, but I’m not going to lose my shit if Brice Kofane drops 20 points.
