Friars Loss at Marquette Ends BE Season

The Friars Big East Regular season came to an end Saturday in Milwaukee. The loss dropped Tim Welsh to 94-83 in Big East Play and marked his 4th losing season out of 8. While Tim has done a decent job coaching the current batch of Sophomores and Freshman, Friar fans must be wondering about the future of their storied program. Baring a miracle finish to the end of the remaining Big East schedule we will be singing off until next year.

Friars Win Again!

The Friars won their 4th Big East game of the year with a 61-60 road win at DePaul. With this victory the Friars are now a half game ahead in 10th place in the conference. The Friars were led by Herbert Time and D Mac who had 20& 17. However, it was Sharaud Curry who literally stole the show with a clutch floater with time running out. This marks the third game in a row that Curry has taken the last shot and Friar Fans have got to love the results (Wins against St. John’s and DePaul, Lost to Seton Hall). Fans also have to give it up for Tim Welsh and D Mac who finally have this young team closing out games.

-Friars next game against only team D Mac has not beaten in his big East career.

Curry Recognized

Example

Sharaud Curry was named BIG EAST men's basketball Rookie of the Week. Curry is the second Friar Freshman to receive this honor. Geoff McDermott was named Rookie of the Week on December 27.

Globe Reports on Friar Recruit Lowe

The Boston Globe as an excellant write up on the incoming Friar Corey Lowe

Friars Post 3rd BE Win

So the Friars have gone 1-2 in league play since our last postings. To summarize: good effort against Uconn, tough loss to a Seton hall team that was on the ropes and a nice win over St. John’s. The win over St. John’s puts the Friars in serious contention to qualify for the Big East tournament. Let’s keep the faith as the Friars travel to Chicago for another winable game against DePaul.

Friars Beat Rutgers at the RAC

Congratulations to the young Friars and Tim welsh on an impressive victory.
Tonight the Friars stormed into the RAC and collected their second Big East victory with a 79-69 beating of Rutgers. The Friars came out playing zone defense and hitting everything on offense. The Friars were led by Donnie's 23, 8-8 at one point, and Herbert Hill's big 19. The Friars led by double digits for most of the game including an 18 point lead at the half. Maybe battling through the country's 5th toughest schedule has prepared these young Friars for the road ahead. We sure hope so because the road ahead is the #1 UConn Huskies.

-We all know that last weekend's games did wonders for the Big East but who could have imagined this one. Seton Hall (2-3 in the Big East) traveled to #15 North Carolina St and walked away with a convincing 83-65 win. The same Seton Hall team recently lost at Rutgers on January 7th.

Friars beat De Paul

Example
Lead by Randall Hanke’s 19 and Donnie McGrath’s 16 the Friars enjoyed a comfortable lead for most of the game, but they waited until the last seconds to seal their first Big East season victory. Weyinimi Efejuku gave the hungry Friar fans several gifts they will not soon forget. In the first half Juku threw down a vicious jam on a break away and was on the receiving end of a Sharaud Curry alley-oop. In the second half Juku sunk two free throws with time running out. The second free throw proved to be the game winner.

Up next for the Friars is a trip to the RAC to face Rutgers.
Next Saturday the Friars host UCONN. If UCONN claims the #1 spot in the polls this week, it will mark the fourth time ever and the first time in 21 years the Friars host a #1 team.
