Mount St. Charles Girls' Basketball | Mounties unable to hang with powerful Bay View in Open tourney

March 4, 2015

WARWICK – Mount St. Charles head coach Ray Leveille had joked late during a Tuesday afternoon preparatory practice that he figured most folks would agree that his club had no chance against Division I foe finalist Bay View Academy in the inaugural R.I. State Girls Open Tournament.

In fact, he mentioned, given that line of thought, that “everybody expects us to lose by 30, but that's why you play the game.”

March 3, 2015

WOONSOCKET – The way first-year Mount St. Charles’ mentor Ray Leveille views the situation, his girls should be rather cool and collected when they face second-ranked Bay View Academy in the inaugural R.I. Girls’ Open Tournament tonight at 6 at the Community College of Rhode Island-Warwick gymnasium.

After a surprising capture of the Division III-North title (with a superb 15-3 mark), the Mounties dropped a semifinal decision to Narragansett, which went on to snatch the D-III state championship.

The season is winding down. We are entering the final week of the regular season. After that, conference tournaments will start the following weekend. Selection Sunday is March 15th, less than 2 weeks away. Shortly after Selection Sunday, all will be right in the world. People will be printing out brackets and filling them out at their desk. Inevitably, Jan from accounting will win your office pool by picking her favorite mascots and everyone will be in disbelief. It has been an exciting regular season thus far and boy do we still have the best ahead of us.

Woonsocket Boys' Basketball | Novans knocked out by Rams in semi-final, 66-39

February 27, 2015


PROVIDENCE – It was hard to tell if the absence of head coach T.J. Ciolfi made a significant difference in Woonsocket High’s 66-39 loss to La Salle Academy in a R.I. Division I Tournament semifinal at Rhode Island College’s Murray Center on Friday night.
 
The reason: The third-seeded Rams played almost perfectly in their fast-break offense, especially in the opening session.

Woonsocket Boys' Basketball | Novans hunt for another upset — minus their coach

February 27, 2015


WOONSOCKET – You can debate whether or not the two-game penalty of ejection from a high school basketball game is harsh. The point is that when No. 10 Woonsocket takes the floor at Rhode Island College Friday night against third-seed La Salle Academy, the Villa Novans will do so without their head coach.
