Slow start costs Jalen Evans chance to win

Woonsocket High junior Jalen Evans, the top seed in the 55-meter dash at Saturday’s Class A Championship, found that out the hard way inside the Providence Career and Technical Academy field house.
“I never got the top speed and my start was awful,” said Evans, after finishing second in the dash with a time of 6.5 seconds. “In the middle of the race, I just lost it.”

February 11, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Shaun Noriega was in the game for South Florida for one reason alone – to hit 3-point shots.
