WARWICK â€” On a day that saw this country honor the memory and contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and watch as President Obama mapped out his second-term desires, it seemed appropriate to talk leadership.
Specifically, leadership and the set of guidelines college basketball teams employ when selecting captains, along with what this honor means to those bestowed with said responsibility.
PAWTUCKET â€” Should we stay or should we go? That was the question facing Lincoln head coach Jim Riel during the offseason when the RIIL was getting ready to realign its teams for the 2012-13 campaign.
Stay in the Division I-Eccleston and the Lions would have been competitive night in and night out against the other five public schools in the division. Drop down to Division II and also face a drop in competition, but the Lions would have been one of the clear favorites in the running for a lower state championship.
