View descriptionShare

Welcome to the latest Providence Journal College Basketball Podcast. This is Bill Koch, sports writer for the Journal. I'm joined by Nick Coit, sports director at ABC6 and WEEI-Providence weekend co-host of Cordischi and Coit, and Morey Hershgordon, sports director at WPRI and Fox Providence.

The University of Rhode Island women (1:25) captured a first Atlantic 10 regular season title and head to their conference tournament this weekend. A look at the Rams, how Reiss has transformed them and what the future might look like in Kingston.

Providence's men (24:35) head into a critical final week of their regular season. The Friars would be no worse than the No. 2 seed in the Big East tournament with home wins over Xavier and Seton Hall. Providence is also playing for an improved NCAA Tournament seed.

Is Tyler Kolek (34:55) the Big East Player of the Year? The Cumberland native has enjoyed a superb season with Marquette, which could win the league title Tuesday night.

Brown's men (46:05) effectively start their postseason Saturday night. The Bears host Yale with a place in Ivy Madness at stake. A win and Brown claims the fourth spot in the league tournament at Princeton.

Bryant's men (55:40) have one game left at Maine prior to beginning America East tournament action. The Bulldogs could be hosting a quarterfinal on Saturday -- whether or not they can build some momentum remains to be seen.

Thanks as always for listening.
