Big East Schedule Announced

Though the opponents were already known for a few weeks now, the Big East Conference released the game dates for the upcoming season. The Friars will play on national TV 5 times this year.(7 if you count the 2 South padre Invitational games on CBS Sports Network, though some cable providers don't carry that channel.) All the remaining Big East games will be carried on ESPN regional affilates and/or ESPN3.com, as well as right here at FriarTV.

A New Era Begins Mixtape

All this recruiting news has gotten me pumped up for the season much earlier than usual. In an effort to spread the feeling, here's a mix I threw together mashing up cooley's presser and highlights of most of the current roster.

Boost Mobile Elite 24 with Nerlens Noel live now on FriarTV!

If you don't have StreamTorrent yet, click here to start downloading automatically.

After unzipping and installing, click here to open the FriarTV ST Channel.

If for some reason clicking the link won't work, open StreamTorrent, click File>Add, then copy and paste this url into the blank box:


Upon opening the channel, a page will pop saying website not found. IGNORE IT. The only progress that matters is that of the buffering bar. It may take a few minutes to connect, but StreamTorrent guarantees no blackouts from copyright violations or any of that bullshit, and gives you a nice resizable window.


Watch Nerlens Noel Live Tonight on FriarTV

Nerlens Noel will be playing in the Boost Mobile Elite 24 at 7PM on ESPNU tonight, with 23 of the other best high schoolers in the country. This one doesn't seem to be streaming on ESPN3, so someone I know will be streaming the game live to those who don't have ESPNU at home. For info on how to watch, check out the tutorial here. Windows only(or Linux with Wine), sorry Mac users. For now, tune in and watch some Sportscenter and the RedSox at Noon. My apologies if there are interruptions early on, as someone I know will be trying to work out the kinks before the game tonight.

In addition, keep an eye out for Noel highlights from tonight's event as soon as I get a chance to cut it up.

Zach Auguste Mixtape

I threw together this little highlight reel of PC target Zach Auguste, an athletic 6-10 forward/center from Marlborough, MA who blocks shots, faces up well, and runs the floor as well as any big in the country. A problem remains, however, in that if the Friars get Ledo to commit, which many expect to happen early next week, they will be out of scholarships for the 2012 season. In years past, a brizzing would have been an easy solution, but the resulting hit to the APR is more costly with the new standards. Still, things like these have a way of working themselves out, and Auguste is a local talent worth making room for.
