PROVIDENCE — Coventry wrestler Dylan Dupre just finished a fantastic freshman season with a sixth-place finish at the state tournament Saturday. Dupre should have been happy with the result, instead he was thinking about what he needs to do to become an elite wrestler.

WESTERLY — Designed plays look nice on dry-erase boards, but it’s the top-level players who make the decision and are usually the reason a play works, fails or is changed in favor of something completely different.
Monday night, in the latest installment of the best Division II boys basketball rivalry, West Warwick’s Max Motroni knew with his team trailing by a point with 16 seconds left in the game that coach Richard Grenier wanted him to drive to the hoop. Motroni saw the lane was closed and proceeded to bury a 25-foot 3-pointer.

URI women have a lot to talk about after loss

February 16, 2011

KINGSTON – There was a lot Cathy Inglese could have been talking about for the 30-plus minutes following the University of Rhode Island women’s basketball team’s 64-43 loss to Fordham Wednesday night.
She could have been yelling about the fact the Rams shot just 35.4 percent from the floor, or that they were outrebounded 37-28, or that they were outscored 51-23 in the final 25:10 of the game. She may have been discussing geopolitics, fashion trends or how the fans must have felt to watch a truly awful performance.

Wizards getting their groove back

February 15, 2011

NEWPORT — West Warwick forward Ryan Lawton’s 25 points kept his team in Monday’s night game with Division II’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 junior’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.
