Getting psyched for March Madness? It’s been nearly fifty years since the Providence College basketball team came within a whisker of the 1973 NCAA Finals. Had PC’s dominant center not been injured in the semifinal game, they likely would’ve met up with the mighty UCLA Bruins for a Finals showdown. Author Paul Lonardo reveals how that once-in-a-lifetime team was assembled and captured the hearts of so many.

Books will be available for sale and signing.
