PC bows to No. 9 Villanova in double-OT thriller

February 18, 2014

PROVIDENCE – The rematch was far more competitive. The outcome was just as painful for the Providence Friars to swallow.
PC tried its best to throw ninth-ranked Villanova for a loop, but the Wildcats were able to hang on for an 82-79 double-overtime victory on Tuesday night before 12,106 at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Ryan Arcidiacono closed out with 21 points, though none were bigger than the layup the Villanova guard converted with 3.6 seconds left in the second extra session.

February 18, 2014

For someone who normally wears blue as the head coach of the Cumberland softball and Burrillville cross country teams – and had sported touches of red during past stints with the Tolman and Cranston West girls’ basketball squads – Marty Crowley found himself having to adjust to green and gold this winter.
But aside from changing his athletic wardrobe, Crowley’s transition to the Massachusetts girls’ basketball scene and the extra competitive Hockomock League as the head coach of King Philip High of Wrentham, Mass. has been a seamless one.

“Not a second of that game,” Cooley emphatically stated, those words coming Saturday afternoon.
