PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence College men’s basketball coach Keno Davis has opened up a Twitter account to keep Friar fans updated on the most recent activity in the men’s basketball program. Fans can check out Davis’ Twitter page at
“After spending the last year in Providence, I believe we have some of the most loyal fans in college basketball,” Davis said. “I want to give our fans access to our program and keep them informed. There are always a lot of exciting things going on with our basketball program and I hope this technology is a useful tool for sharing the news with our fans.”
