NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“ First-year North Smithfield basketball coach T.J. Ciolfi believes in playing the game at a fast tempo.
â€śWe trap and press the entire game,â€ť Ciolfi was saying on Saturday, two days after his Northmen lost to unbeaten Johnston, their first Division III defeat in four games this season.
â€śI learned that we have to rebound better from that game,â€ť Ciolfi, a North Providence native, said. â€śWe had been doing a good job rebounding until we played Johnston, but they are tall and very aggressive. It seemed like they got to every loose ball.â€ť
WOONSOCKET --- Bishop Hendricken scored three times in the first 4:41 of the third period to snap a 3-3 tie and net a 6-3 win over Mount St. Charles on Friday night in their marquee Division I matchup at Adelard Arena.
