PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College Athletic Department would like to thank groups that have helped kick off the men’s basketball and men’s ice hockey seasons. Some groups also got an opportunity to participate in on-court and on-ice experiences.

The following weekend at the regular season home opener on Saturday, Nov. 10 against NJIT, Holy Name School of Fall River scrimmaged at halftime. Holy Name School also played on Dave Gavitt court following the Friars game.

As part of the night, children from The Tomorrow Fund played a short game at halftime. At the Friday, Nov. 23 game versus Fairfield, St. Mary’s School of Cranston challenged St. Phillips School at a halftime game. The Mount Saint Charles Academy Dance Team ended our November games with a halftime performance at the Tuesday, Nov. 27 Holy Cross game.
