PROVIDENCE â€” Deep down, Ed Cooley knows that itâ€™s probably not the best time to take his Providence Friars on a two-games-in-three-days junket in Puerto Rico.
Still, this is no time to convey weakness, which the second-year PC head coach clearly understands.
As Cooley emphatically stated following PCâ€™s surprisingly easy 81-49 throttling of Bryant on Monday night, the show must go on â€“ even if itâ€™s without the services of senior point guard Vincent Council (hamstring).
WOONSOCKET â€” The Americans couldnâ€™t make up their minds about fighting the British. And some on the British side thought they were done fighting Americans during the revolution.
But by the time it was over, the War of 1812 ended up cementing Americaâ€™s place in the pantheon of world powers, opening a gateway to an era of epic economic expansion for the young nation.
And, as a little side benefit, it gave us the national anthem.
PROVIDENCE â€“ As expected, the Providence College menâ€™s basketball team will play Mondayâ€™s intrastate contest against Bryant minus the services of senior catalyst Vincent Council.
Council sustained a hamstring injury in the early minutes of Saturdayâ€™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.
WOONSOCKET â€” Kevin and Jayne Donnell wonâ€™t dispute they have had trouble paying their utility bills or that their outstanding balances with NationalGrid are significant.
But the city couple also doesnâ€™t believe they should be without heat now that the cold weather has arrived.
Kevin Donnell is unemployed and looking for work as a van driver and his wife has health issues that have left her disabled and on Social Security.
