Bryant gives PC a scare

December 10, 2011

PROVIDENCE — To Ed Cooley, what’s one more stern test for his Providence Friars before powering down for a 10-day exam period?
Pushed and pressured all day long by a 1-9 Bryant outfit that wasn’t supposed to pose that big of a threat, Cooley’s Friars overcame 34 minutes of “listless” basketball to fight tooth-and-nail over the final six minutes, a stretch which wound up serving as the difference Saturday afternoon at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center.
In the end, the Friars prevailed by a 72-61 count, but it was far from an easy win.

Villa Novans eyeing success this winter

WOONSOCKET — Uncertainty.
That might best describe what’s in the mind of longtime Woonsocket High track coach George Briggs right now concerning the upcoming winter campaign.
While the numbers are big this year with more than 40 kids, the Villa Novans lost some key point-scorers to graduation, have two of their best athletes recovering from injuries and are still awaiting word if a few more are coming back this year.
