Friars let win slip through their grasp

February 5, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Five additional minutes seemed like a risky proposition for the Providence Friars. Turns out it was.
The final verdict, an 87-84 nail-biter in West Virginia’s favor, only re-opened the wound regarding how PC let Sunday’s Big East contest slip away. Missed free throws coupled with an inability to snatch rebounds on the defensive end were the main culprits. The two bugaboos came back to bite the home team hard when Mountaineers senior Daryl “Truck” Bryant calmly and coolly splashed in a 3-pointer with 3.3 seconds remaining in OT, breaking what was a 84-84 affair.

Other than exchanging passing greetings and a few pleasantries at the end of Mass, it eventually dawned on Krzywonos that he really didn't know who his fellow parishioners were.
"For the longest time they were just faces without names," he says.
