Friars play Keno

Anyone who's been to a convenience store in Rhode Island knows that Keno is big in the Ocean State. Now, Providence College hopes Keno Davis is even bigger. (Bad lede, I know, but it's a blog)

The Friars have named Keno Davis as PC's 14th men's basketball coach. He spent last season as the head man at Drake University, where he was named 2008 National Coach of the Year by the AP, USBA and Sporting News.

Drake went 28-5 overall and 15-3 in the MVC this season but was defeated in the first round of the NCAA touranment by Western Kentucky, immediately before UConn's loss to San Diego at the St. Pete Times Forum. Both games went to overtime.

Davis is the son of Dr. Tom Davis, who coached at Boston College, among other stops. (For what it's worth, Jim Calhoun is 1-4 all-time against Dr. Tom ... if his luck against Dr. Tom's son doesn't improve, PC might continue it's hard-to-explain recent run of luck against the Huskies!!)
