CUMBERLAND – Cumberland High didn't reign in its own annual John D. Gorman Memorial Wrestling Tournament on Saturday, but veteran head coach Steve Gordon didn't mind an iota.
After all, some of the best squads from around New England received invitations, and Gordon perceives the event as a solid, mid-season “testing ground” for his grapplers.
PROVIDENCE â€“ The 1994 Providence College menâ€™s basketball team, headlined by Dickey Simpkins and Michael Smith, far left, and Abdul Abdullah, far right, were honored during Saturdayâ€™s game against Georgetown at the Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Center. The team shares a laugh while watching video highlights from the Big East Tournament championship it captured that year.
PROVIDENCE – As Providence’s Ed Cooley and his coaching counterpart on Saturday afternoon, Georgetown’s John Thompson III, are well aware, the Big East was built on rough-and rumble play that at times can burn the retinas.
It’s a league that despite all the changes is still not for the faint of heart.
Local police chiefs are encouraging their officers to remain vigilant after the fatal shooting of two officers in Brooklyn last month and heightened hostility from nationwide protests fueled by anti-police sentiment.
