WOONSOCKET -- For a team that owns a magnificent 17-1 record and has outshot its opponents by an imposing 91-12 count, itâ€™s safe to say that Mount St. Charles hasnâ€™t experienced too many long nights at the office this season.
But there has been one team that has made life somewhat challenging for the Mounties throughout the season, and itâ€™s not the one that topped them back in mid-December, but the one that came awfully close to doing so in each of its three meetings with the defending champs.
PROVIDENCE â€“ In preparation for Tuesdayâ€™s game against the Jim Calhoun-less UConn Huskies, Ed Cooley took his club to the movies. The screening didnâ€™t include popcorn and soda, rather visual evidence to demonstrate just how far Cooleyâ€™s PC Friars have come from a mediocre showing in an exhibition game to this past weekendâ€™s last-second escape job at DePaul.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Itâ€™s just not the players who burn with desire, clamoring to face the very best. Coaches too relish the opportunity to match wits and strategies whenever thereâ€™s a noted leader of the pack residing in the opposite corner.
