WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles first-year chief Henry Coleman provided his troops an earful after entering the break with a mere 29-21 advantage over winless Davies Tech on Wednesday night.
“I thought we settled too much for the outside shot when we could’ve been attacking the basket,” Coleman stated. “We were two for 10 with the three-pointer in the first half, but we also talked about doing a better job on screens, especially with their three-point shots.
PROVIDENCE – The warranty on Tyler Harris’ coming-off-the-bench experiment has officially expired.
Since the probability of the Providence College redshirt junior serving as a reserve for a ninth straight game against Xavier Thursday night is high, the time has officially come to dub Harris as the team’s super sub. When Ed Cooley made the decision to remove Harris from the starting five a month ago – Dec. 20 vs. UMass to be exact – the coach explained the move as a prime chance to bolster the Friars’ firepower off the bench.
BRISTOL – Cumberland High senior captain Jack Bauer admitted he was a bit sore while competing at the annual Max Read/Joe & Roy Watmough Memorial Invitational Swimming Championships on Sunday.
It was no surprise as to why: Less than 24 hours before, he had swum nearly 9,000 yards (or over five miles) with his USA Swimming, Inc.-affiliated club team, Adirondack Aquatics of Franklin, during a practice session.
PAWTUCKET – Tigers junior center Fenda Konte was force to be reckoned with on Tuesday, notching a triple-double with 16 points, 23 rebounds and 11 blocks, as Tolman held on to beat crosstown foe Bishop Keough, 54-45.
Tolman had held a 17-point lead (35-18) over the Koalas with 11:42 left in the final period, and a 16-point advantage (39-23) with less than eight minutes left in the game.

BURRILLVILLE – Despite dropping a tough 7-6 decision to the Toll Gate/Pilgrim/Warwick Vets squad at Warwick’s Thayer Arena the night after Christmas, Burrillville/Ponaganset Co-op first-year head coach Cortney Lacey deemed it the finest collective outing of the campaign.
She changed her mind after her Broncos had manufactured a stellar 8-1 Division I triumph over the Smithfield/North Smithfield/Coventry Co-op team at Levy Rink on holiday Monday afternoon.
WOONSOCKET – In a fierce battle between the two top teams in Div. III North on Monday, Mount St. Charles and Classical, the Mounties came out on top for a 67-66 overtime win.
Mount sophomore Skylar O’Connell hit the game-winning layup with 18 seconds left in OT with her team down one.
WOONSOCKET – Mount St. Charles cruised to an easy 8-1 win over Cranston on Friday night at Adelard Arena.
The Mounties jumped out to a quick lead with four first-period goals and Cranston never challenged after that.
LINCOLN – Davies Tech head coach Bill Meekins has seen his fair share of talented athletes in his decades of mentoring, but admitted Masters Regional Academy’s Pablo Perez is perhaps the best.
For all the praise the Big East’s 18-game double round-robin men’s basketball schedule has drawn for its simplicity and straightforwardness, a few wrinkles still need to be ironed out.
