NORTH SMITHFIELD â First-year North Smithfield basketball coach T.J. Ciolfi believes in playing the game at a fast tempo.
âWe trap and press the entire game,â Ciolfi was saying on Saturday, two days after his Northmen lost to unbeaten Johnston, their first Division III defeat in four games this season.
âI learned that we have to rebound better from that game,â Ciolfi, a North Providence native, said. âWe 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
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.
