There is not much to be said about last week. On Wednesday, the Friars scheduled game versus Boston University was rained out. The week was taken as an opportunity for those nursing injuries to get back into better health. On Saturday, Georgetown University came to Providence for a 1 p.m. start. I did not see the game. All I needed to know was that the Friars lost 1-0, in a game that although not absolutely critical to the outcome of their season, was a great opportunity to get themselves off the mark in the Big East with their first win and their first points in conference play.
The Friars have six Big East matches remaining, three of which are at home. The next few weeks will define the outcome of the Friars' season and it is imperative that each member of the team gives their best performance for each of the remaining games. These better performances need to start on Wednesday, when the Friars welcome the fifth-ranked University of Connecticut Huskies to Glay Field. This is the first of six chances the Friars have left to grab points in the Big East and make a push for the Big East Playoffs. I'm looking forward to a stellar Providence performance and a big win over a good Connecticut team on Wednesday.
