Former Friar will always be regarded as one of the greatest.
The three former Friars had their jerseys put into the rafters at halftime on Saturday.

Friars will host the Hoyas on January 15 at Alumni Hall for a 7 p.m. tip-off.
Listing Kevin Stacom as Ernie DiGregorio's backcourt mate unfairly undervalues the career of one of PC's greatest guards. A transfer from the school that gave the Friars Joe Mullaney (Holy Cross), Stacom was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year. He was also one of the most consistent and effective shooters ever at PC, netting a .527 career field goal percentage, tops among guards. He was a Second Team All-American as a senior who played in the 1973 World University Games. He took over the Friar offense as a senior after DiGregorio graduated.
Stacom was a second round draft choice of the Boston Celtics in 1974. He played six seasons (1974-1979; 1981-1982) in the NBA as a member of the Celtics, Indiana Pacers, and Milwaukee Bucks. He averaged 5.1 points per game in his career and won a league championship with Boston in 1976.
