PROVIDENCE â Woonsocketâs Mike Akinrola is making a big impact on Rhode Island Collegeâs basketball team this season.
The 6-foot-6 junior is averaging 14.3 points per game. He was named Little East Conference Co-Player of the Week last week after averaging 21.5 points and five rebounds in two games.
Thereâs a scene in Jerry Maguire in which Jerry, the do-anything-at-all-costs agent, is going over the particulars with Matt Cushman, father of quarterback and surefire top pick Frank. Besides appeasing his pseudo clients with dollar figures and draft stature, Jerry aims for some reassurance from the Cushman camp that he will be entrusted with the negotiations with the NFL team that selects Frank.
Matt Cushman closes the discussion with a firm handshake along with the following: âWhat you have is my whole word, and itâs stronger than oak.â
WOONSOCKET â For a few moments, it felt like a train was hurtling through the neighborhood as Christine Lanoue shoveled the heavy, slushy snow in front of her home at the end of First Avenue yesterday.
âI heard a big rumbling and the whole ground was shaking,â she said. âI thought my house was collapsing.â

WOONSOCKET â If you liked yesterdayâs weather, youâre going to love what Mother Nature has in store for us today.
The latest in a series of unusually fierce winter storms turns out to be a double-dipper. After dumping four to seven inches of snow across the Blackstone Valley Tuesday, a second wave â a hard-to-predict combo of snow, sleet and rain â is expected to whack the region by nightfall.
CUMBERLAND â Another snow day, another lost practice session for Cumberland Highâs wrestling team.
âThis makes me very uncomfortable,â Cumberland coach Steve Gordon was saying on Tuesday morning as another snowstorm hit the region. âI donât have any control over the kidsâ weights when we canât practice. But my guys know what to do. They are pretty good about it. Some of them will go over to Northeast Elite (a wrestling school in Woonsocket) and get a workout in. We canât practice at the school because if school is cancelled, itâs over. You canât practice.â
CUMBERLAND â There may be a âDâ at the end of Cumberland, but when it comes to the high schoolâs hockey team, the âDâ has been front and center for the past several seasons.
After 11 games, the Clippers have surrendered a division-low 17 goals, and news of them being atop this department shouldnât be anything new to those who follow the Division II circuit.
