Congratulations are in order for former North Kingstown High School basketball and baseball player Mark Medeiros.
The 21-year old has unofficially won the November "Streak for the Cash" on ESPN.com after making the most correct picks on various sporting events this month and because his streak was the biggest of the year, he is set to take home the $150,000 prize.
The University of Rhode Island men's basketball team continue its rough start to the season Wednesday night, falling to in-state rival Brown 65-56.

It was a rough Tuesday night for the South Kingstown and Narragansett football teams as both squads saw their hopes at a Super Bowl title end in the semifinals.
The Rebels led Hendricken 7-0 after a Garrett O'Dowd punt return touchdown, but the Hawks took over and scored the next 42 points in a 42-14 win over SK in the Division I semifinals.
Narragansett outplayed Middletown most of the night, but a pair of fumbles that were returned for Islander touchdowns proved too much to overcome in a 38-22 loss in the Division III semifinals.
NORTH SCITUATE â€” â€śLetâ€™s dance.â€ť

WEST GREENWICH â€“ In any other season, somewhere in this copy youâ€™d read about how the Exeter-West Greenwich girls volleyball team played West Warwick last night in the Division II semifinals, the result was unavailable at press time, check the website for results, then read a story about how the Knights won Monday night, they just want to keep playing well and while their goal is to repeat as Division II champions, theyâ€™re not looking past West Warwick.
CRANSTON â€“ The unique sound a field hockey ball makes when it hits the back of the cage is different than anything in sports, especially when it ends a game and in the case of the East Greenwich field hockey team, their quest at winning back-to-back state championships.
