Clippers even hoop record, keep Toll Gate winless

December 23, 2013

CUMBERLAND — It wasn’t even close to being an attractive contest, not with a combined 28 turnovers and 27 personal fouls.
Still, head coach Gary Reedy refused to complain after his Cumberland High boys registered what he called a satisfying 53-40 non-league triumph over Toll Gate at The Wellness Center on Monday night.

Friars plan to take advantage of semester break from classes; PC freshmen suspended for season

December 23, 2013

PROVIDENCE – During the winter semester break, the assumption is that LaDontae Henton and the rest of the Providence College basketball players are going to have a lot of downtime. After all, exams are done and classes don’t resume on the Smith Hill campus until Jan. 21.

Yet as Ed Cooley gladly points out, the Friars will not be on autopilot.

Lady Broncos unable to withstand South County 'Storm'

December 21, 2013

BURRILLVILLE – Late Friday night, Burrillville/Ponaganset Co-op exhibited masterful play while strolling to a 7-1 upset victory over Mount St. Charles at Adelard Arena, and the girls celebrated the unusual – and somewhat historic – decision with moxie.

Perhaps 17 hours later, head coach Marc Brissette conducted a serious meeting with his troops prior to their Division I/Emma League contest against the South County Co-op Storm inside Levy Arena.

Defending Division III champion Northmen win league hoops opener

December 21, 2013

WOONSOCKET – This definitely isn’t the same North Smithfield High that rolled to a perfect 24-0 mark in Division III action last winter en route to the state championship.

It nevertheless is formidable, and it showed in the Northmen’s 58-44 D-III season-opening victory at Mount St. Charles on Friday night.

Head coach T.J. Ciolfi’s bunch took advantage of senior center Peter Keenan’s “double-double,” which included a game-high 21 points and 16 rebounds with seven blocks; and its defense, which caused the Mounties a pair of dismal droughts lasting a total of 12:27.

A welcomed addition: Joppie, Brentz give stamp of approval to new PawSox manager Boles

December 19, 2013

To enlighten the masses regarding the kind of manager and person the Pawtucket Red Sox are getting in Kevin Boles, we engaged in a background check that conjured all sorts of positive vibrations.

In essence, this is a “getting-to-know-you-better” exercise, an opportunity to view through the lens of those who know and understand Boles best and have more insight into his roots than any introductory press conference ever could.

PawSox extend coaching staff, bring Crabbe aboard

December 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — At a time when a host of Boston’s top prospects are stationed in Double-A and Triple-A, the organization arrived at the decision to provide the PawSox coaching staff with an additional voice.

To be clear, Kevin Boles is Pawtucket’s new manager while fellow Triple-A newcomer Bruce Crabbe is classified as coach, not bench coach. The pair will be joined in the trenches by pitching coach Rich Sauveur and hitting coach Dave Joppie, two holdovers from Gary DiSarcina’s staff who will be returning to McCoy Stadium in 2014.

Lincoln squads sweep Mount in Div. II swim opener

December 18, 2013

WOONSOCKET — The numbers game was truly unkind to the Lincoln boys’ swim team in its one-win campaign from a winter ago, and that was clearly evident in the final weeks of the season, when the Lions were forced to go into meets with just six swimmers at their disposal.
But this season, the numbers are high for the Lions, and so are their expectations at returning to their winning ways.

PC hoopsters hold on for 76-74 victory over Yale

December 17, 2013

PROVIDENCE — You know that the Providence Friars are involved in a tight, white-knuckle affair when Ed Cooley emphatically removes his sport jacket and flings it in the general direction of the bench.

When it was all over and PC had secured a hard-fought 76-74 win over upset-minded Yale on Tuesday night before 3,281 patrons, Cooley immediately honed in on his team’s porous defense, one that came oh-so-close to allowing the Bulldogs to waltz out of the Dunkin’ Donuts Center with an eyebrow-raising victory.

Even without Dunn, Friars confident that they'll remain on point

December 16, 2013

PROVIDENCE – Now that the sobering news regarding Kris Dunn’s unavailability for the season’s duration has sunk in, the question becomes just how exactly Providence College plans to cope for the long haul.

If there’s a way to somehow cushion the loss of the only tried-and-true point guard at Ed Cooley’s disposal, it’s that the Friars have been down this road before. Spread over four games, Dunn logged 106 painful minutes. PC registered 405 minutes in the 10 games leading up to the exam break, the bulk of those minutes featuring Bryce Cotton as the on-floor maestro.

Veteran mentor excited about this season's batch of Cumberland wrestlers

December 16, 2013

CUMBERLAND – This will be Steve Gordon’s 46th consecutive season at the helm of his Cumberland High wrestling program, and – as has been the case for the previous 45 – he arrived at Monday afternoon’s practice session at least 30 minutes beforehand.

As always, he does so to greet his grapplers, check on possible injuries or illnesses (i.e. football) and/or prepare them for the task at hand: Getting physically and mentally primed for another premier campaign.
