Friars celebrate Big East title, set sights on North Carolina

March 16, 2014

PROVIDENCE – As Ed Cooley and his Providence players posed for pictures, signed autographs and accepted one congratulatory handshake after another, the next mountain to climb started to come into focus.

While the sea of adulation that engulfed the Friars at Alumni Hall Sunday night was a fitting tribute to the program’s distinction as 2014 Big East Tournament champions, it’s time to shift gears and turn the page.

Burrillville jumps out to big lead, hangs on for 5-4 win over Cranston to force game 3 for Div. I title

March 16, 2014

PROVIDENCE -- Burrillville came out with much more aggressiveness and intensity than it exhibited 24 hours before, suffered a lapse midway through the third stanza and held on tight to a thrilling 5-4 triumph.

With the verdict, the fourth-seeded Broncos not only improved to 7-13-3 overall, but gave Daigle a “Get well soon” gift: A rubber game at Brown at 7 p.m., Tuesday to determine the new Division I champion.
