Providence Friars

Open Mic: Providence Friars Basketball All-Time Lineup

The Providence Friars have a rich history, and while they have never won a National Championship, they have been home to some of the game’s all-time greats.

Here is the Providence College all-time lineup.  There are some snubs, no doubt, but each of these players contributed in a major way to Providence’s legacy.

Guard: Jimmy Walker

Walker is one of the game’s greatest mysteries.  He averaged 23 points as a junior and led the nation with 30 points per game during his senior year.  Walker is the Friar’s second all-time scoring leader with 2,045 points, all without the benefit of a three-point line.  He was a three-time All-American.

Guard: Ernie DeGregorio

The slick point guard helped the Friars dramatically from 1971-73.  He is PC’s all-time assist leader with 267 and eighth all-time leading scorer with 1,760 career points.  He was also a three-time All-American and ended up winning the Lapchick as the nation’s most outstanding senior.

Forward: Marvin Barnes

“Bad News” had a lot of negative attention off the court, but on the court he was a force.  Barnes averaged 17.9 rebounds per game and even had a game when he grabbed 34 boards. 

Forward: Ryan Gomes

After UCONN snubbed him, he made life a living hell for Big East opponents.  He is the Friars’ all-time leading scorer and was named to several first team All-American lists following his remarkable junior season.

Center: Marty Conlon

Conlon was a member of the team’s Final Four run.  A journeyman in the NBA, Conlon played with several teams.
