This past weekend was full of up's and down's emotionally. Friday night was our Senior night at Providence. We celebrated our two graduating players, Cash Blanca and Braxton Phommarath. They both brought a lot to the program this last four years, and we are all sad to see them leaving. Unfortunately, the celebration was shut down by the lost to CMU. As Kendall Perpall said, “We had a slow start.” It's something that we need to fix in our game, starting strong, staying at the same level all game long and finishing strong. Saturday night was better in terms of our start, but unfortunately, we still couldnt sustain that energy and we let the Blazers come back in the game and eventually another win.
Since I started working with this team a couple of months ago, I see the improvement, individually speaking but also in the way we go out and play our game. Now we have two weeks of preparation before the playoff to bring our game to the next level.

#12 Kendall Perpall: This weekend of Basketball was full of ups and downs. I am proud of everyone coming out Friday for senior night. We had a slow start but I like how the team fought back to take the lead, proving we have what it takes to level up and be a good team. Unfortunately to win we have to play at that high level the full game. Saturday we started off better, but again we just did not play 40 mins of good ball.
I’m excited for the time we get to prepare for the playoffs to get stronger, better and healthier. And another shot of redemption against teams we let sneak away with a win.
