The Rhode Show

The 1972-73 Providence Friars have held a special place in the hearts of generations of local hoops fans for decades. Now, the remarkable run and making of the squad that included Ernie D and Marvin Barnes and was led by Dave Gavitt has been chronicled in a book by Paul Lonardo, entitled “Homegrown: The Making of the 1972-73 Providence College Friars.”
