We had many foolish fouls away from the basket. Two of Soriano’s fouls were foolish. So, while the refs seemed to favor Providence with the calls we didn’t do ourselves any favors. Our main reason for losing was our star player not showing up.

Now we get UConn away with them coming off a loss. Get ready for another beat down.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

Undisciplined basketball from the gang that can’t shoot straight. Poor defense. No rebounding. This was a perfect example that pressure on defense shouldn’t be confused with good defense. We committed a ton of fouls and Providence was 26/30. Of course, our gang of gunners shot 8/17 from the same line. That’s pathetic. 

SJU also took 20 more shots than Providence. Yet lost by 10!?

Another long season coming up.

Agreed Duke, best case scenario, we go 7-13 in conference.

Been saying it since the start of the season, our front line is really weak and will have a really difficult time against most Big East front lines. Once Soriano went out, Watson went off. Maybe he goes off anyway in the 2nd half, but at least Soriano makes him work a little harder. Anyhow that's just one of the reason we lost, the biggest being Champ's off game. Kudos to Wheeler for playing a great game and helping us stay close. Hope we see more of that, we'll need it.

Hate losing this game! I cannot stand Ed Cooley! First off always whining and complaining. Can he please wear a hat maybe a fedora! If I had no legs I’m not wearing shorts! The team plays sloppy that hasn’t changed. If Champ and Posh have bad games we have no shot. Aaron Wheeler finally looked like Div. 1 ball player today.  I guess it’s on to play the clowns from Storrs.

Refs were bad but not the reason we lost.
Lack of fundamentals, missed defensive assignments, blocking out, etc… 
Offensively relying on hero ball, not Champs fault, off games happen. More of a reflection of the playbook.

To our credit, we held off Watson without Soriano in the first half.   Anderson gambled and lost on keeping him on the floor in the first half.   You know if he didn't pick up his 3rd early, PC would have pounded the ball inside to Watson until he did.   The 4th foul was a crap call by the refs, inconsequential contact away from the ball 11 seconds into the second half.

Our guys scrapped like hell, and if Champ would have played 10 minutes of Champ ball at the end, we would have hung in.   Posh was relectless on D, Wheeler gets an "A" for his game, and Wusu got a sloppy 20.    The fouls disparity was ridiculous but with how we were playing, understandable.

Not a bad showing away.  It all depends on how good Providence really is.   If they are a 6th place BE team, then we are in trouble.   I think we can beat them at home, PC just isn't that good.

He's just giving credit where credit is due the refs were an integral part of PC winning. However being one to not blame the refs for the outcome when the game was close and under 10 to play PC slapped us around.
