PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College women's basketball team will release a blog, once per month (possibly twice depending on the number of games), throughout the 2013-14 season. The blog will alternate between Head Coach Susan Robinson Fruchtl and the student-athletes. Our second blog features a post from senior Danielle Pearson (Brooklyn, N.Y.).

"OUR JOURNEY THROUGH THE NON-CONFERENCE SCHEDULE" - December 11, 2013
Hey Friar Fans, It's Dee Dee! We hope that you've enjoyed following us this season, but we have so much more ahead of us. Providence College women's basketball has definitely changed for the better. It's more exciting and I enjoy being out there with my teammates. WITNESS CHANGE!!
We got off to an amazing start (4-1). How about those two 100+ games??
From a players standpoint I believe we have a really good team and we'll definitely do some good things this year. We're trying our best to pull out of the non-conference schedule with as many wins as possible. We're also really looking forward to the new opportunity to play each team twice in the BIG EAST. A new era of the league is right around the corner!
We've recently stumbled a bit, with losses to Arizona State, Albany and Duquesne, but we're determined to find a way to bounce back after exams when Dayton rolls into town! They've been pretty good the last couple of years, so we need to be focused!
While we were at Arizona State, we had three days of rain! I thought it was in the desert??? Did everyone see our pics in front of all the cactus? Or is it cacti?
We played Albany right before we headed off to enjoy Thanksgiving. They have a 6'-9" player (that should be illegal). I thought about sitting on Lex's shoulders. After the game some of my teammates headed out to see their families for Thanksgiving. However, a few of us spent our Thanksgiving at Coach Susan's house. She always has some great food in store for us.
In our last game, we got down early and fought back from a 19-point deficit against Duquesne. We showed a lot of fight and tied the game with two minutes left, but couldn't pull it out. It was disappointing, but there are better days ahead. We just have to keep up the chemistry on the floor and play for each other out there.
Alright, well I hope we'll see you at our next game against Dayton on December 18! Make sure you enjoy your holiday! We're thankful for you in Friartown!
GO FRIARS! - Dee Dee
