January 11, 2011

PAWTUCKET --– This may be hard to fathom, but the regular season in boys’ basketball ends exactly one month from today.
For teams like St. Raphael Academy, it’s simply a matter of full speed ahead. Veteran head coach Tom “Saar” Sorrentine has concerns that are generally viewed as normal for this time of year.

January 10, 2011

PROVIDENCE — There was more than basketball going on inside the Pizzitola Center Saturday night.
Labeling it a local success story doesn’t seem to paint the entire picture, though you could make a strong argument based on the three lads hailing from Central Falls on Lyndon State’s roster – certainly a rare occurrence. A homecoming? The three ex-Warrior hoopsters are all first-year college players, meaning they haven’t been in the hinterlands of Vermont long enough to be jarred loose from our memory banks.

Preventing bullying

January 9, 2011

EAST PROVIDENCE — Riverside native Kevin Robinson abhors very few things in life, and what tops the list is seeing people treating others unfairly, being unkind just for the sake of humor or self-promotion.
The same goes for those who choose not to live by the “Golden Rule” — that is, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
That was the crystal-clear message the eight-time X Games' BMX aerial trickster and best pal Chris Poulos delivered to over 1,800 East Providence High students in their gymnasium on Friday morning.
