â€śI pretty much blacked the whole thing out,â€ť he says matter-of-factly.

PROVIDENCE â€“ 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 Virginiaâ€™s favor, only re-opened the wound regarding how PC let Sundayâ€™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 â€śTruckâ€ť Bryant calmly and coolly splashed in a 3-pointer with 3.3 seconds remaining in OT, breaking what was a 84-84 affair.
PROVIDENCE â€“ There are times that Ed Cooley must feel like heâ€™s being pulled in a thousand directions.

Based on the buzz surrounding one of the nationâ€™s most talked about recruiting classes, Cooley has allowed Friar fans to dream big about what the future may hold.
