January 23, 2013

EAST PROVIDENCE – After a game of twists and turns galore, head coach Alex Butler wouldn't say he was thrilled after his East Providence High squad had registered a 74-64 Division I-Central victory over gamey Central High on Wednesday night.
He also didn't downplay it.
“The key thing for us is we've been working so hard on our zone defense in practice, we wanted to see it work,” he noted as the triumph pushed the Townies back to .500 overall (7-7), and left them at 5-6 in league play. “We wanted to be in attack mode from the wing to the baseline to the block, and we did that well here.

WARWICK — Lincoln junior Casie Beauchemin must have ice water in her veins. With 2.3 seconds left on the clock, Beauchemin swished two free throws to give the Lions a remarkable 34-33 victory over Warwick Vets on Tuesday afternoon.

When facing Hope High in a Division III tilt on Tuesday afternoon, the opposite occurred.
The Koalas went exactly nine minutes and 13 seconds of the second half without scoring a single point, though they had built enough of a cushion to eventually snatch a 33-26 victory over the Blue Wave at its own gymnasium.
