BRIDGEPORT, Ct. â€“ Believe it or not, Providence College and Fairfield actually played a basketball game on Monday night.
Such an important detail can get easily lost in the wash considering the pregame circumstances. On one side of the court stood Ed Cooley, the new PC coach whose previous port of call was Fairfield.

PAWTUCKET --- Fights donâ€™t get any bigger or significant than the one Peter Manfredo Jr. has on Saturday night.
If the Manfredoâ€™s Gym middleweight beats undefeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at Houstonâ€™s Reliant Arena, he will take home Chavezâ€™s WBC (World Boxing Council) championship belt and be in line for a huge payday in the form of an expected title defense against former WBC champion Sergio Martinez.
