Friar Legends Will Be Honored at the Fifth Annual Friar Legends Golf Outing
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Two former Providence College Friars, ERNIE DiGREGORIO '73 and CHRIS TERRERI '86, will be honored as Friar Legends at the Fifth Annual Friar Legends Golf Outing supporting the Friar Foundation at the Warwick Country Club on Monday, July 21, 1997.
DiGREGORIO, a wizard with the basketball as a ballhandler and passer, not only defined the running Friar tradition, but helped revolutionize college basketball's fast break offense. Still the all-time assists leader and one of the top scorers in PC history, he was a three-time team MVP, a consensus All-America and Lapchick Award winner as the nation's outstanding senior. He was the NCAA East Regional MVP and the only Providence College player to make the NCAA Final Four All-Tournament team as well as the only Friar named Eastern Player of the Decade (for the 1970's) by the ECAC. The third pick in the 1973 NBA draft, he went on to be the NBA's Rookie of the Year. He played for the Buffalo Braves for four seasons before a season with Los Angeles and the Boston Celtics.
TERRERI, one of the greatest goalies to come out of Providence College, set numerous school, league and NCAA records throughout his college career. He was named PC's Athlete of the Year as a junior, voted MVP of the 1985 NCAA Championship Tournament, and named academic All-America and MVP of the 1985 HOCKEY EAST Championship. In 1984-85 after leading the Friars to the HOCKEY EAST title and the NCAA Championship Final, Terreri was named to the 1985 NCAA All-Tournament and All-America teams, First Team All-America East, and named by HOCKEY EAST as the Player of the Year, Tournament MVP and First Team All-Star. After his senior season (1985-86) in which he was a Hobey Baker Trophy finalist, Terreri played for the U.S. National team and the 1988 Olympic team. Terreri then went on to the New Jersey Devils (winning the Stanley Cup in 1995) for 10 years where he set numerous team records as a goaltender. In March, he was one of only three goaltenders named to the NCAA 50th Anniversary All-Tournament Team. Terreri now plays for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Foursomes and tee sign sponsorships are still available for the Fifth Annual Friar Legends Golf Outing. Entry fee is $160 per person which includes lunch, awards, cocktails, dinner and a chance to play a hole with Pete Gillen and Paul Pooley. Tee sign sponsorship is $125 per sign and includes a tee sign and dinner. For more information, please call the Providence College Sports Information Office at (401) 865-2272.
