College Basketball Round Up

March 2, 2015

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.

Providence College basketball | Henton in historic statistical company, but still sees more work to do

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.

URI basketball | Last-second second shot doesn't drop as Davidson escapes, 60-59

February 25, 2015

KINGSTON— Sometimes, basketball isn't about strategy and sets. 

Sometimes, basketball is just about one team making a shot and one team missing a last-second shot.

Trailing by two points late in Wednesday's Atlantic-10 showdown with Rhode Island, visiting Davidson grabbed the lead with an outrageous step-back corner 3-pointer from Jack Gibbs. Moments later, URI freshman Jared Terrell missed a wide-open 3-pointer from the left wing right in front of the URI bench and the Wildcats escaped the Ryan Center with a 60-59 road victory.
