Homegrown: The Making of the 1972-73 Providence College Friars: Author Paul Lonardo
Monday, February 24, 2020 ~ 7:00pm - Getting psyched for March Madness? It has been nearly 50 years since a certain Friars team came within a whisker of the 1973 NCAA Finals. Had Marvin Barnes, PC’s dominant center, not been injured in the semifinal game, they likely would have met up with the mighty UCLA Bruins for a Finals showdown. Lonardo’s Homegrown: The Making of the 1972-73 Providence College Friars reveals how that once-in-a-lifetime team was assembled. It is a retrospective of the team’s remarkable season as well as a history of the PC basketball program. Books will be available for sale and signing.
