The Providence College Friars are going on to the Big East Championship after an 80-74 win over Seton Hall Friday night.

The win gives PC their first shot at the title in twenty years, and also improves the team's chances of making the NCAA Tournament.

But fans out watching the Friars Friday weren't thinking that far ahead just yet.

Cheers went up at Fat Belly's in Providence right after the Friars won. A group of PC seniors was at the pub to catch the game, and they were just excited to see their team advance to the Big East Championship game.
