Mount begins quest for Banner No. 43 Friday night, faces La Salle in best-of-three State finals

March 13, 2013

WOONSOCKET — Fact is, Mount St. Charles Academy chief Dave Belisle likes the way his squad is playing right now.
He admitted being less than ecstatic with the Mounties' 7-4 triumph over Coventry High in the first game of a best-of-three R.I. State Championship semifinal set last Friday night, but couldn't have been more satisfied with their 4-1 victory 24 hours later.
With that sweep, second-seeded MSC earned yet another berth in the state finals, and will take on familiar foe La Salle in the series' initial tilt at Meehan Auditorium at 7:30 p.m., Friday.

MSG is again a house of horrors for PC's Council

March 13, 2013

NEW YORK – For one final time, the Providence player with deep New York City roots trudged off the floor at Madison Square Garden with an empty feeling in his stomach.
Vincent Council’s last chance at Big East Tournament glory resembled his previous three experiences at this hallowed cathedral – with the Friars serving as an all-too familiar one-and-done casualty. As a result, the senior point guard hailing from Brooklyn is left to ponder whether the glass is half-full or half-empty.
