Bryant gives PC a scare

December 10, 2011

PROVIDENCE — To Ed Cooley, what’s one more stern test for his Providence Friars before powering down for a 10-day exam period?
Pushed and pressured all day long by a 1-9 Bryant outfit that wasn’t supposed to pose that big of a threat, Cooley’s Friars overcame 34 minutes of “listless” basketball to fight tooth-and-nail over the final six minutes, a stretch which wound up serving as the difference Saturday afternoon at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.
In the end, the Friars prevailed by a 72-61 count, but it was far from an easy win.
