SOUTH KINGSTOWN â That wasnât a basketball game that took place at the Ryan Center Thursday. That was a rock fight.
Or considering the stare down at center court that Dan Hurley and Ed Cooley engaged in with 3:55 remaining â one that also contained a few verbal jabs for good measure â perhaps they should have put the basketballs away and slapped a pair of boxing gloves on the two head coaches.
Style points were definitely at a premium, but oh, what a conclusion the Friars and Rams staged.
What would it take for the stateâs four Division I menâs basketball programs to get together for an in-season, round-robin tournament?
Depends on which school representative you speak with.
âAnything we could do to grow interest, whether it be a doubleheader, a tournament or anything like that, we would be all for it,â stated Brown head coach Mike Martin.
There are three things that are certain in life -- death, taxes, and Mount St. Charles going down to the wire with Bishop Hendricken and La Salle in the battle for the Division I state championship.
That being said, expect much of the same from the three parochial schools this winter -- a long tooth-and-nail duel that will begin tonight and end in the finals sometime in mid-March at Brown University.
