WARWICK â With his own special and unique brand of tough love, Ed Cooley consistently relays to suspended forward Kadeem Batts that he let the entire Providence College basketball program down.

WOONSOCKET â George Coderre likes to sit on the bench during Woonsocket High basketball games and let his players, usually his point guard, run the offense, calling out which plays to run against a specific defense.
âEvery coach has their own style,â Coderre was saying Wednesday afternoon. âI am extremely vocal and demonstrative during practice. In games, I try to sit down and just let the players feed off of each other. I do make some noise during games but I try to let the kids recognize defenses and call their own plays.â
