PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Three basketball legends who played at Providence College are being honored by the Rhode Island Senate.

The Senate will consider a resolution Tuesday honoring Kevin Stacom, Joe Hassett and Tracy Lis.

Stacom, a 1974 graduate, is considered one of PC's greatest guards. He was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year. He was drafted by the Boston Celtics and played six seasons in the National Basketball Association.

Hassett, a 1977 graduate, was sixth on PC's all-time scoring list. He helped the Seattle Supersonics win an NBA championship in 1979.

Tracy Lis, a 1992 PC graduate, is the all-time leading women's scorer and the only Lady Friar to score more than 2,000 points. She played professionally for the New England Blizzard.

Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed will sponsor the resolution.
