McGair: Banged-up PC Friars must band together to succeed

November 14, 2012

Some Friar hoop musings as Providence College gets set for a serious workout down in Puerto Rico …

Standing in the hallway outside Joe Mullaney Gym late last week, Vincent Council touched upon the close-knit nature of this year’s PC basketball team.
