It is finals week and it has been a little difficult for us to get posts up but there aresome relevant things happening.  Instead of waiting to create a longer post on what is essential old news we thought that we would just give a few bullets about what is going on.

1. If you didn’t already see, Tim Welsh resigned as the Head Coach of Hofstra.  He made it just about a month and never coached a game.  It really is a shame that he blew a chance at coaching.  Hopefully he can get himself together, learns from this terrible mistake, and has success is the future.  Hofstra has announced that assistant Mo Cassara to head coach.

2. Our recruiting page was a disgrace.  So we have been updating it.  It is just about done now.  It is mostly just a list of who is being targeted, but does have some write ups for the more relevant players.  We like to follow recruiting here, but by no means are we experts.  The page is more for the casual fan interested in the future of PC Basketball.  So please take a look and see what you think.  We will try to be much better about updating this off-season.

3. Speaking of recruiting a big time sophomore recruit is on campus today according to his facebook.  6’9″ Khem Birch will be on campus.  He is ranked as the 19th best player in his class, and he is the real deal folks.  He would be a huge score if we were able to land him.  So if you see him make sure you let him know Providence is the place to be.

4. Sticking with the recruiting, Providence is hoping to land center Kevin Noreen.  Noreen had originally committed to Boston College, but after the firing of Al Skinner, he reopened his recruitment.  Now he continues to be recruited by Boston College, and is getting strong looks from Indiana.  Noreen was on campus several days ago.

5. Last note on recruiting.  If you haven’t already seen, Friar Basketball: PC Hoops for All has added game film to their site.  They have film from the Providence Jamfest which had some PC prospects playing.  It is lengthy, but if you have some time you should take a peek.  Also there is a good video of Naadir Tharpe that we definitely recommend watching.

6. Lastly, keep a close eye on Big Ten expansion.  We plan on doing a much bigger post on this later, but Syracuse, Pitt, Rutgers, and UConn are all possibilities to leave the BIG EAST.
