Sorry we didn’t post this sooner.  With driving back to school and moving back in it was difficult tofind time.  But since we are late in posting this we will just have a short recap and a few thoughts.

Providence lost at Marquette on Sunday by a score of 63 to 93.  The Friars really never were never really able to get anything going.  They shot poorly from the field and allowed Marquette to shot over 60% from the floor and from behind the arch as well.  Greedy Peterson was ejected from the game near the end of the first half for throwing an elbow, and as a result eliminated any remaining chance PC had of coming back in the game.  The one bright spot for Providence was Vincent Council who started for the second time this season.  He shot 50% from both the floor and from behind the arch.  He finished with a game high 24 points.  He also added 4 assists and three offensive rebounds.  The Golden Eagles three players score over 20 points and were led by Maurice Acker who netted 23.  With the loss Providence moves to 3-3 in the conference and 11-7 overall.  Their next game will be against South Florida at home on Saturday.  The Friars will next play Matquette at home on February 6.

We weren’t able to see most of this game so we will not say much.  One thing for sure is that VC continues to impress.  24 points on the road when the rest of your team is nowhere to be found as a freshman… that is impressive.  VC has a very bright future.

Marshon and Sharuad had been playing much better until this game.  They both seemed to have very off night looking at the numbers.  Hopefully this doesn’t linger and they get back on track against South Florida this weekend.

As far as Greedy’s ejection… it would have been interesting to see how Providence did with him in for the whole game, but it wouldn’t have helped them win.  There were much bigger problems than Greedy getting tossed.  We need to have people to step up when Greedy isn’t playing.  We need people to hit the boards harder and make points for themselves.

Hopefully the next game will be better for us.  The best thing to do with this game is take away what you need to from it than put it behind you.  Hopefully the next game will be better.  We have USF up and it is a Saturday night game, and school is back in session.  Hopefully there will be a good turnout for the first BIG EAST home game while everybody is around and doesn’t have too much work.
