MONTH BY MONTH (1997-98)...2-1 in November...The Friars were 4-1 in November last season...

HOME COOKING...The Friars are 2-1 at home this season after going 12-3 at home last season.

Two of the losses have come in the NIT (Virginia Tech -1995, St. Joseph's - 1996) and two losses have been to Rhode Island (1992, 1996).

CIVIC CENTER RECORD...PC owns a 319-120 (.728) record at the Providence Civic Center since the building opened in 1972. The Friars recorded their 300th win on January 8, 1996 against Canisius (91-63).

JAMEL THOMAS -
Chosen Preseason Second Team All-BIG EAST
Dick Vitale's Preseason Second Team All-BIG EAST
Adidas/Blue Ribbon Honorable Mention All-American
Athlon Sports Preseason Third Team All-BIG EAST
Swish Magazine New England Division I Men's Dream Team

FAST ROOKIE STARTS...John Linehan and Ben Perkins got their Providence College career's off to fast starts in the Friars' opening win over Vermont. Linehan played 36 minutes, scored 13 points , grabbed three rebounds and added two assists in the win. Perkins recorded a double-double in his first game with 10 points and a game high 12 rebounds. The 6-7 forward played 36 minutes and his free throw with 3:11 left in the game put the Friars ahead to stay.

JAMEL THOMAS...Wasted little time in picking up where he left off as a sophomore. The 6-6 swingman scored a game high 25 points, pulled down 11 rebounds and had a PC best three assists in PC's win over Vermont. For Thomas it was the fourth double-double of his career. He also set career bests with 12 free throws and 16 free throws attempted.

MORE JAMEL....Thomas picked up his second consecutive double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds versus Brown. That's the fifth double-double of his career and marks the first time he's done it in back-to-back games. The last Friar to have two double-doubles in a row was Austin Croshere who did it against Pitt (25-12) and Rutgers (17-13) on February 15th and 18th respectively.

FOR STARTERS.....The Friars entered the 1997-98 season with just two players who had ever started a college basketball game. Jamel Thomas had 33 starts last season and Corey Wright had three in 1996-97. Ben Perkins, John Linehan and Llewellyn Cole all made their first starts in PC's win over Vemont.

DEFENSE... The 33 points that Providence held Brown on November 25th were the fewest given up by the Friars since December 5, 1992 when PC defeated New Hampshire, 56-27. Brown scored 13 points in the second half. In the 12/5/92 game against UNH, the Wildcats were held to just 12 points in the first half.

MAKING THEIR MARKS....PC's four freshman are showing what they can do early in the season. Guard John Linehan has scored 13 and 10 points respectively in PC's first two games. Forward Ben Perkins had a double-double in his first game and added 11 more rebounds the second game. Center T.J. McKenzie sat out the first game with a sprained right wrist. Versus Brown, he played just nine minutes and had five rebounds, but no points. Swingman Erron Maxey made the most of his nine minutes against Brown as he scored 11 points with three rebounds.

FRIARS VERSUS RANKED TEAMS...Utah is the first team that Providence will face that is ranked in the top 25. The Friars will also face the University of Rhode Island and Purdue in the month of December. A year ago, PC was 3-3(AP) and 4-3 (USA Today) against nationally ranked teams.

MAXEY EFFORTS...Freshman swingman Erron Maxey (Lake Elsinore, Cal.) has made the most of his limited playing time this season. Versus Brown, in nine minutes, Maxey scored 11 points with three rebounds. Against Boston College, Maxey came in off the bench to spark the Friars. In 13 minutes, the 6-6, 195-pounder had 12 points and five rebounds. In 22 minutes, the last two games, Maxey has 23 points and eight rebounds. That's more than a point a minute!!!

SWEET LOU...Sophomore Llewellyn Cole (New York, N.Y.) turned in career highs against Boston College in minutes played (31), points (12) and rebounds (9). "Sweet Lou" is averaging 8.0 points per game and 5.7 rebounds. He is 11-19 from the floor for a .571 shooting percentage.

FRIARS TAKE TO THE ROAD....Tonight's game against Utah is the first of three road games for the Friars. On December 9th, PC will be the "away" team when they face Rhode Island at the Providence Civic Center. On December 20th, the Friars travel to Canisius. PC's next home game is on December 23rd against Loyola Marymount.

HOME OPENERS....The Friars opened their 71st season of play with a win against Vermont on November 18th. The Friars are now 63-8 overall in season opening games. When that season opening game is at home, PC is 49-3 and the record is 14-5 when the first game occurs on the road. In home openers, the Friars are 66-5 all-time. Providence has now won four season openers in a row. The Friars have now won 13 straight home openers dating back to November 29, 1984 when they lost a 70-67 decision to Assumption at the Civic Center.

BIG EAST OPENERS...PC's game against Boston College marked just the fifth time in 19 years that PC opened the BIG EAST schedule at home. With the loss to Boston College, the Friars have now lost eight straight BIG EAST openers. The last time PC won was in December of 1989 when they beat Boston College at home. That was also the last time the Friars opened the league schedule in Providence. PC is now 8-11 overall in home openers and 3-16 overall in season opening games.

FAST COMPANY....With 261 career wins to start the 1997-98 season, Friars' coach Pete Gillen is moving in with some fast company. Only eight other coaches have reached that many wins faster than Gillen in 12 or less seasons. Here's a list of the group with him:

COACH               SCHOOL              YEARS       RECORD  GAMES
Everett Case        North Carolina St.  1947-57     280-71  351
Denny Crum          Louisville          1972-82     263-74  337
Jim Boeheim         Syracuse            1977-87     261-84  345

Jerry Tarkanian     Long Beach/UNLV     1969-79     259-49  308

The above five coaches reached 259 wins in 11 seasons. The following coaches did it in their 12th season. Gillen's record after 12 years stands at 261-112. (At 2-1 this season, Gillen's record now stands at 263-113).
