Rhode Island Week in Review

Special by Rhode Island Hoops | Saturday, January 7th, 2012

The week gone by has been an exciting one in the state of Rhode Island as we have officially entered the heart of the high school basketball season.  Here's a look at some of the headlines: 

• LaSalle scored a big victory in their rivalry game against Bishop Hendricken.  Junior guard Tom Hunt stepped up when the lights were on the brightest for LaSalle, hitting shot after shot while showing his unlimited range.  He also helped to put the game away down the stretch by coming down on the fastbreak and converting an and-one. 

• Rogers took another win from North Providence this week and Marc Washington proved to be the difference maker.  Washington led Rogers with 20 points using his size and skill to beat-up the state’s alleged most talented back-court. 

• West Warwick’s Ryan Lawton scored his 1000th career point this past week as he continued to dominate the paint at the division two level to the tune of 23 points and 16 rebounds for his eighth double-double of the year.  Local division II powerhouse, Rhode Island College, has interest in Lawton. 

• St. Raphael’s junior guard Charles Correa opened the week with 28 points and 9 dimes as he continued to dominate the competition in RIIL action.  He had problems finding his stroke last weekend against New London but still managed 15 points.  Marist college has expressed interest after attending a few games. 

• Future Providence Friar Kris Dunn made his debut in the state and it was a dominant one.  He went for an incredible 32 points and 26 rebounds to lead New London over St. Raphael’s last weekend at CCRI.
