PC Friars seeing postseason hopes slip away

February 17, 2012

PROVIDENCE — Ed Cooley claims he had no idea that Wednesday’s loss at Cincinnati resulted in his Providence Friars dipping below .500 for the first time this season.
“To be honest with you, I didn’t even know that,” Cooley said after this reporter informed him of the news Friday, one day before PC welcomes 10th-ranked Georgetown to The Dunk Saturday night.

PAWTUCKET — Minutes before the Division II-Central clash between archrivals Tolman and Shea highs, Tigers coach Mike Kayata seemed even more intense than usual, and that's hard for him.
“We're playing to win this one,” he said as his players warmed up, “and the answer is going to be defense. We have to take care of the ball and limit their fast-break points.

We just have to take care of the ball.”

A junior at Lincoln High, Zammarelli recently announced his intention to attend Division I Elon University, located in North Carolina. To issue a verbal that signifies the acceptance of an athletic scholarship package long before Zammarelli is even eligible to sign a national letter of intent speaks volumes of just how comfortable the player is with the school and vice versa.
