PROVIDENCE â€“ For 30 minutes, the Exeter-West Greenwich girls basketball team played like it was ready to go to the schoolâ€™s first state championship game.
The last two minutes kept the Knights away from the Ryan Center.
Exeter-West Greenwich vs. Bay View at Rhode Island College, 8 p.m.
PROVIDENCE - The old adage is defense wins championships.
The Narragansett girls basketball team will find out for sure Saturday afternoon.
Using an aggressive three-quarter court trap, the Mariners forced 27 turnovers and in the second half turned most of them into points as Narragansett outscored Moses Brown by 22 points in the final 12 minutes, 40 seconds in its 55-32 win Tuesday night in the Division II Semifinals at Rhode Island College.
The Mariners move on to the D-II final Saturday at the Ryan Center at 4:30 against Classical, which beat Johnston 38-37 in early game Tuesday.
