The View From Section 3 - Providence

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

So the Carnesecca crowd usually greets the opening line-up with a nice round of applause and cheers. They did so tonight for all those announced except one person - Steve Lavin. When Lavs was announced to the crowd, it fell silent. Lavs has lost the crowd, and he is about to lose the media - but we will get to that in a minute. Once again Sanchez and God's Gift were in the starting line up and we promptly fell into the 8-12 point deficit that stayed throughout most of the first half. What became clear at the end of regulation and the end of the first overtime was that Lavs lost confidence in his teams defense. With 20 plus seconds on the clock and a tie game with the ball, Lavs had the team run the clock down to just about zero before taking a shot. I mean, we can't defend the Friars for a ten second clip if need be? He did it at the end of regulation and end of the first OT. So it was going to be one shot and one shot only. Then we end the second overtime with Hooper on the floor again. And he once again is just about the last Storm player to touch the ball at the end of the game with an even worse result than last time - a turn over. Now back to the media - Brandon Tierney on the post game radio show was literally speechless. He could not believe the last sequence and said the 0-5 start was unacceptable. He asked Gene Keady why Jordan saw no time at the end of the game. Keady's answer was that it was a coach's decision (Lavin's) and he did not know why Jordan sat. When his interview session was done Keady said, "I'm sorry for putting you guys through this". Tierney told him not to apologize - it wasn't like they were trying to lose. Hmmmm.
