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?
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.
