A first for R.I. basketball: ‘Selection Wednesday’

February 19, 2012

In NCAA Tournament speak, Selection Sunday is a day for fist clenching as teams wait on hands and knees to see if they made it or were denied admittance. Taking a page from how the field of 68 is unveiled to the viewing public, the Interscholastic League plans to replicate at least some of the drama by conducting a live broadcast of the releasing of boys’ basketball tournament pairings.

February 19, 2012

WEB ONLY: Hoyas grind PC Friars to a halt, 63-53

February 18, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Hoya Destroya, indeed.
A Georgetown team that figures to be a tough out come NCAA Tournament time slowed the Providence College Friars to a virtual crawl Saturday night in a 63-53 Hoya win that wasn’t even as close as the final score indicates. PC shot 25.9 percent for the game after compiling a 4-for-28 horror show in the first half. Such a frigid display made the task of trying to shock the 10th-ranked team in the country even more of a tall order, one that PC coach Ed Cooley openly acknowledged during his postgame meeting with the press.

Sayles places second in high jump at state meet

February 18, 2012

PROVIDENCE – In a time of uncertainty, all Ali Sayles of Mount St. Charles could do is rely on pure adrenaline – hoping somehow, some way that everything would work out for the best.
Despite a tough ending in the finals of the girls’ high jump at Saturday’s R.I. Indoor Track & Field Championships, Sayles was able to salvage a bit of good news. The senior cleared the bar with a leap of five feet, four inches, good for second place overall. Sayles’ jump was also a personal- and school-best (she achieved 5-2 at the 2011 indoor state meet).

Finally! Mount ends four-game skid vs. La Salle

February 17, 2012

WARWICK — The fifth time was the charm.
Ryan Berard’s unassisted goal -- a seemingly harmless pass from behind the net that deflected off the skate of a La Salle defenseman and past the goalie -- with 2:38 to go in the game snapped a 2-2 tie and helped Mount St. Charles nab a huge 4-2 victory over the Rams at Thayer Arena.
Brian Campbell’s goal off a pass from Brian Belisle with 1:53 left sealed the deal and allowed the Mounties (11-5) to yank a huge monkey off their backs and beat the Rams (10-5-1) for the first time in five meetings this season.
