WEB ONLY: Hoyas grind PC Friars to a halt, 63-53

February 18, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Hoya Destroya, indeed.
A Georgetown team that figures to be a tough out come NCAA Tournament time slowed the Providence College Friars to a virtual crawl Saturday night in a 63-53 Hoya win that wasn’t even as close as the final score indicates. PC shot 25.9 percent for the game after compiling a 4-for-28 horror show in the first half. Such a frigid display made the task of trying to shock the 10th-ranked team in the country even more of a tall order, one that PC coach Ed Cooley openly acknowledged during his postgame meeting with the press.

PROVIDENCE – In a time of uncertainty, all Ali Sayles of Mount St. Charles could do is rely on pure adrenaline – hoping somehow, some way that everything would work out for the best.
Despite a tough ending in the finals of the girls’ high jump at Saturday’s R.I. Indoor Track & Field Championships, Sayles was able to salvage a bit of good news. The senior cleared the bar with a leap of five feet, four inches, good for second place overall. Sayles’ jump was also a personal- and school-best (she achieved 5-2 at the 2011 indoor state meet).
