PC Friars to play Bryant game minus Council

November 11, 2012

PROVIDENCE – As expected, the Providence College men’s basketball team will play Monday’s intrastate contest against Bryant minus the services of senior catalyst Vincent Council.
Council sustained a hamstring injury in the early minutes of Saturday’s season opener against NJIT, the result of the point guard slipping on The Dunk hardwood before falling awkwardly. His departure left head coach Ed Cooley with a razor-thin rotation featuring just six scholarship players and one walk-on.

November 11, 2012

PAWTUCKET — As is the standard after a football game, Woonsocket High head coach Carnell Henderson walked to the midfield stripe behind his troops and shook hands with opposing players and coaches alike.
He congratulated all for a job well done, then hugged a few St. Raphael Academy assistants before speaking briefly with long-time Saints' mentor Mike Sassi.
Maybe four milliseconds later, he bolted to his squad and leaped into a few of his heftier players' arms, then – after a few choice words, naturally all positive – he led his kids in a classic Villa Novans' chant.

CRANSTON — Head coach Jeremy Sherer didn’t have to dig deep to find the reason why his North Smithfield team lost to two-time defending champion Exeter/West Greenwich in their Division II semifinal-round affair on Saturday afternoon at Cranston Stadium.
“I thought for the most part, we got muscled off the ball too much,” the second-year coach said after his Northmen suffered a 5-1 loss to the unbeaten Scarlet Knights. “They’re a strong team, they’re physical, and they did a nice job of beating us to the ball. It really came down to the 50-50s. They won them and we didn’t.”
