Location: The Dunkin’ Donuts Center (Providence, RI)

Date: Saturday, November 14

Time: 6:30 pm

Preview: PC will take on the Bucknell University Bison. After a disappointing season last year, Bucknell is looking to rebound and is ranked 5th (according to CBS Sports) in the competitive Patriot League. The Bison are lead by senior forward Patrick Behan. Behan is a pre-season Patriot League First-Teamer. Also returning is senior, and 2008 Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year Stephen Tyree, who could make a real fun at Conference Player of the Year this year. The Bison are rounded out with the sharp shooting of G.W. Boon and Darryl Shazier who were among the leaders in threes in the Patriot League last year.

The Bison lost their opener last night in a close game to Mercer, 89-80.  The Bison were led in scoring by guard Bryson Johnson.

Lowdown: We will make this very short and simple.  If PC does everything they did last night they should not have a problem.  Clean play and good shot selection, coupled with superior athleticism should get the job done.  The Friars need to come out with the same intensity they did last night and not take Bucknell lightly.  Last, is keep the defense up.  Bucknell can put points on the board, but a defensive performance like last night should keep them in check.
