SOUTH KINGSTOWN â€“ Behold the skill set of Charles Correa.
St. Raphaelâ€™s talented point guard couldnâ€™t have picked a better time to showcase his talents. With a berth in the finals of the open state tournament on the line, Correa did his part in SRAâ€™s 66-48 quarterfinal win against North Providence Friday night at URIâ€™s Ryan Center.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Bob Driscoll is back on the clock, and this time the Providence College athletic director is bringing some important friends along for the ride.
For the second time in three years, Driscoll finds himself making an important assessment of the menâ€™s basketball program. PC parted ways with Keno Davis on Friday after three turbulent seasons, a tenure that was marked by tough times on and away from the court. Speaking from inside his Alumni Hall office late Friday afternoon, Driscoll mentioned he plans on forming a search committee in his quest to find the next Friar coach.
Officially, the Keno Davis Era at Providence College ended Friday, when the school severed its working relationship with the head coach, one many perceived upon his hiring three years ago was the missing link in bringing respectability to the menâ€™s basketball program.
Technically, Davisâ€™ fate at PC was sealed last May 18, when star player Jamine â€śGreedyâ€ť Peterson was expelled after an undisclosed incident in a dorm room on campus. The incidents that came before and after Petersonâ€™s ouster were a further death knell to a situation that Davis was never able to recover from.
