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.

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.
