Woonsocket High boys' basketball | Novans' dynamic duo of Vazquez and Lyles lead way in 69-57 win over Saints

January 7, 2015


WOONSOCKET – T.J. Ciolfi’s Villa Novans are quickly earning the reputation as a pick-your-poison team for opponents.

Do you run multiple defenders at 6-foot-5 senior Gary Lyles, who possesses a special blend of athleticism that’s hard for frontcourts to contend with? Or do you elect to concentrate on Elijah Vazquez, a shifty guard who seemingly possesses unlimited range?

Mount St. Charles basketball | Lataille's 20 and 18 leads Mounties past Lions

January 7, 2015

WOONSOCKET  –  During the Christmas break, Mount St. Charles dropped three straight non-league contests, and first-year head coach Henry Coleman knew why.

His team wasn’t crashing the boards or playing team defense like they should be, so spent extra practice time on those issues.

Coleman said he could see that work pay off during the Mounties’ impressive 49-36 non-league victory over Division II foe Lincoln on Wednesday night, to improve to 2-4 overall.

Pro Football Playoff Previews and Predictions

January 5, 2015

Next Week’s Matchups:

Dallas @ Green Bay

What to watch for:

Dallas will travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and their dynamic offense. Green Bay has not lost at Lambeau Field yet this year. Dallas matches up well with Green Bay because they have a strong running game that can keep the clock running and keep the ball out of Green Bay’s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bay’s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.

Pick: Green Bay 31-24

Carolina @ Seattle

What to watch for:
