Homegrown: The Making of the 1972-73 Providence College Friars Basketball Team
With the college basketball season fast approaching, and the 50-year anniversary of the 1972-73 Friars remarkable run on the horizon, I wanted to take a moment to tell you about a new book release that I believe would be of interest to you. “HOMEGROWN: The Making of the 1972-73 Providence College Friars” is a retrospective of that team’s magical season, as well as a brief history of the school’s basketball program, which was itself responsible for drawing the local talent that propelled the 1973 Friars to the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament. PC has a long history of great basketball teams and beloved players, but there has been anything like the talent and allure of Coach Dave Gavitt’s 1972-73 Friars. “HOMEGROWN: The Making of the 1972-73 Providence College Friars” is a celebration of Providence College’s basketball program and a tribute to Coach Dave Gavitt, the players, and all the fans of 1973 Friars. As an author and Rhode Islander, I am proud to be able to offer this book to readers who remember how this team captured the imaginations and hearts of so many. This book is available in paperback as well as e-book format. I look forward to hearing back from you with any questions you may have. Best Regards, Paul Lonardo
