PROVIDENCE â€“ If this was a boxing match, a good referee would have intervened and stopped the proceedings before things got too out of hand. It was a total mismatch right from the opening tap.
Providence College was much better than the University of Rhode Island yesterday. The Friars dominated in coasting to an impressive 87-74 triumph over the Rams before a sellout crowd of 12,410 at the Dunkinâ€™ Donuts Center. PC led by a dozen in the first half before going up as many as 17 points late in the game.
â€śWinning isnâ€™t everything â€¦ itâ€™s the only thing.â€ť
Most people attribute this quote to legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi. Actually, Vince borrowed it from a former UCLA football coach named Red Sanders. Its true meaning is hard to miss. Winning is the only thing that matters.
PAWTUCKET â€” Fans and supporters of fresh and organic farm-to-table produce, seafood and other edible items now have two days a week to shop.

NORTH SMITHFIELD â€“Kent Crooks realizes that this yearâ€™s squad doesnâ€™t really have a superstar or a good-to guy.
What the Lincoln High coach does know is that he has multiple players that can get the job done.
And that was clearly on display during Friday nightâ€™s non-league Injury Fund contest versus North Smithfield.
Three players scored in double digits and half a dozen netted at least six points as the Lions breezed to a 76-38 win over a somewhat-shorthanded Northmen squad at the Lovett Gymnasium. Lincoln was led by a team-high 16 points from Mike Akanji.
