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.

Wilson saves the day as URI tops Charlotte

February 12, 2011

KINGSTON – Whether or not the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team deserved to beat Charlotte Saturday afternoon is irrelevant.
It didn’t matter how it looked, because when the Rams left the Ryan Center, the scoreboard read Rams 71, Guest 70.
Akeem Richmond missed a jumper from the right corner with three seconds left in overtime, but Jamal Wilson was in the right place at the right time – and got away with the right move – for a putback just before the buzzer in overtime, giving the Rams the dramatic one-point win to finish off an incredible second half for URI.

Garrick's simply grand

WEST WARWICK — When you mention the name Garrick, immediately the West Warwick Wizards boys’ basketball team comes to mind and images conjure up of Tom and Stace filling the baskets on a nightly basis back in the early 80’s and again in 2000.
Both would go onto score over 1,000 points in their illustrious careers sporting the black and orange.
Their legacy left an indelible mark on fans and assured the name Garrick would forever be synonymous with other greats who have played boys basketball in West Warwick alongside Bill Robinson and Chuck Palumbo.
