All the notable news, links, pictures, and video in and around Friartown and college basketball all in one digestible, tasty place
If you goto the hockey game you can get these awesome Ed Cooley and Nate Leaman t-shirts. Students only, I think. Still cool to see though.
Friars.com: Watch Live Streaming Video Of Late Night Madness
And it’s FREE!
The Providence College Athletics Department will offer a live video stream of its annual Late Night Madness event to kick off the 2012-13 basketball season. The live stream is free of charge and will be available beginning at 10:00 p.m.
This year’s edition of Late Night Madness will be held in the newly renovated Alumni Hall/Mullaney Gymnasium, marking the first basketball-related event in the upgraded facility. For those wishing to attend Late Night Madness, doors open at 9:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the general public.
Kevin McNamara tweeted that there could be dozens of recruits that show up to Late Night Madness, but they are teenagers so who really knows. Couldn’t be more true, as Jared Terrell is apparently no longer planning to attend after it was reported by his coach that he was on Wednesday night.
The list of Late Night Madness attendees is certainly impressive, but I’m not really expecting any immediate commitments. The 2013 guys (Brandon Austin and Ron Patterson) have a lot of big visits planned, and for the 2015 guys it’s way too early. There was a lot of talk about Kahari Beaufort practically ready to pledge to the Friars on Twitter earlier in the week. I would say he is the best chance for hearing some good recruiting news out of everyone listed so far, but I’m fairly certain he wants to visit other schools as well. Don’t be discouraged if nothing concrete comes out of this right away, as it’s just really a visit for these kids under a great atmosphere.
