PROVIDENCE â€“ As expected, the Providence College menâ€™s basketball team will play Mondayâ€™s intrastate contest against Bryant minus the services of senior catalyst Vincent Council.
Council sustained a hamstring injury in the early minutes of Saturdayâ€™s season opener against NJIT, the result of the point guard slipping on The Dunk hardwood before falling awkwardly. His departure left head coach Ed Cooley with a razor-thin rotation featuring just six scholarship players and one walk-on.
For the time being, the cast of Friars will consist of Bryce Cotton, LaDontae Henton, Kadeem Bats, Brice Kofane, Lee Goldsbrough, Josh Fortune and Ted Bancroft.
