PROVIDENCE – As Providence’s Ed Cooley and his coaching counterpart on Saturday afternoon, Georgetown’s John Thompson III, are well aware, the Big East was built on rough-and rumble play that at times can burn the retinas.

LINCOLN  –  You would think head coach Joe Handy would have been thrilled after his Davies Tech players had collected a pivotal 51-43 victory over Burrillville at Gaskin Alumni Hall on Friday night.

After all, his defense allowed only one Bronco – senior center Catherine Keable – to reach double figures in scoring, and forced a whopping 41 turnovers.

Handy, however, seemed disenchanted with the Division III-North triumph.

January 10, 2015


WOONSOCKET -- To head coach Tom Pereira, something was clearly missing in the first seven games of the season for the Lincoln/Cumberland Co-op team.

That “someone” was prized transfer Samantha Wellington, who made her season debut Friday against ironically her former club, Mount St. Charles. Though the sophomore did not create a ripple on the scorer’s sheet, she impacted the game in other areas in helping the Lions top the Mounties, 5-3, at Adelard Arena.
