NEWPORT â€” West Warwick forward Ryan Lawtonâ€™s 25 points kept his team in Mondayâ€™s night game with Division IIâ€™s top team, Rogers. His 21 rebounds created numerous second-chance and transition opportunities for the Wizards. And his six blocks intimidated the Vikings in the lane.
But the juniorâ€™s biggest play in the 60-57 victory over Rogers came on one of his three assists.
With Lawton and fellow junior Max Motroni playing a two-man game on the left side of the court, Lawton kicked the ball out from the post and Motroni hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 36.1 seconds remaining in the contest.
