    Mike Scandura

    Nobody could blame North Providence High basketball coach Paul Rizzo if he shed tears of sadness last June when 10 of the 14 boys on his 2012-13 team that finished 15-3 and lost to Shea in the Division II quarterfinals graduated. Now flash forward...

  5. La Salle (R.I.) hoop dethrones Classical

    Mike Scandura

    Ordinarily, when a school holds a pep rally, regardless of sport, it's before a playoff game. That wasn't the case on Tuesday night when La Salle Academy held a pep rally prior to its Division I crossover game with defending boys' state basketball...

    Mike Scandura

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - BC High coach John Flaherty was content to exit Brown University's Meehan Auditorium with a point on Saturday afternoon and not wonder about what might have been. As a means of explanation: The No. 2 Eagles and perennial Rhode I...

  8. Hendricken again setting pace in R.I.

    Mike Scandura

    That Hendricken High again is among the top football teams in the state, while playing in the top division (Division I), isn't a major surprise. The Hawks have a long history of reloading instead of rebuilding - which is exemplified by the fact th...

  9. Rhode Island football preview

    Mike Scandura

    Invariably any pre-season football preview at least starts - but doesn't necessarily end - with perennial Division I power Hendricken. Coach Keith Croft's Hawks are coming off their third consecutive Division I Super Bowl championship (and ninth i...

  11. New England Roundup: Rhode Island

    Mike Scandura

    Different year. Same story. Or to put it another way, Hendricken is giving every indication that it's zeroing in on a state-record 18th Division I baseball championship. Through games of May 7, the Hawks led Division I-North with an 11-0 record...

  12. New England Roundup: Rhode Island

    Mike Scandura

    At the risk of using a culinary metaphor, the regular season comprised the appetizer for boys' basketball. The soup and salad comprised the division tournaments. And the entree is what 16 teams have been anxiously waiting to devour. After Hope,...

  13. New England Roundup: Rhode Island

    Mike Scandura

    Officially, the nickname of the Classical High boys' basketball team is the Purple. But given how well head coach John Kavanagh's team has played in recent weeks, perhaps that nickname should be preceded by the adjective "red-hot." Classical cl...

  16. New England Roundup: Rhode Island

    Mike Scandura

    At the risk of using a baseball metaphor, the result of the Division I Super Bowl came out of left field. How else do you explain the fact that regular-season champion La Salle was upset, 26-20, by Hendricken in Sunday's Division I Super Bowl? ...
