PROVIDENCE â€” For those associated with Providence College basketball, the importance of keeping a stiff upper lip or oneâ€™s chin high cannot be underscored. After all, itâ€™s not time to pack away the jerseys just yet.
CUMBERLAND â€” Two nights earlier, the wrestlers from Cumberland High knocked off previously undefeated Bishop Hendricken, the friendly confides of the Wellness Center serving as the backdrop. Hoping to replicate some of that home cooking, the Cumberland boysâ€™ hoops team played host to state contender North Providence on Friday night.
WOONSOCKET â€” For the first half of Fridayâ€™s Division I clash with Woonsocket, winless Cumberland looked nothing like a team that has lost 14 straight league encounters.
The Clippers didnâ€™t looked like it in the second half either, but the Villa Novans were not about to let them walk off their court with their first â€˜Wâ€™.
Woonsocket picked up its defensive intensity and had a strong second half from Katie Marcoux to pave the way for a 49-34 triumph at Savaria Gymnasium.
