    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On Thursday, November 4th, Providence College men's basketball players Ron Giplaye(Lowell, Mass.) and Bilal Dixon (Jersey City, N.J.) visited St. Peter's School in Warwick, R.I. to talk with students as a part of the Providence College All-Stars School Rewards program.

    The program is geared toward rewarding academic achievement with tickets to Friar men's basketball games. Participating schools reward students with bookmarks that include a ticket voucher to a men's basketball home game, valid for two tickets, one for the student and one for a parent. Schools will be recognized on the videoboard during the game they attend and some will also be visited by a men's basketball player.
