Boys Hoops Friday Night Spotlight: Hendricken vs. NK

Friday, February 01, 2013

 

North Kingstown has dropped two of its past three games.

The North Kingstown boys basketball team has suddenly hit the skids, with two losses in its past three games following an 11-0 start.

A visit from Hendricken awaits on Friday night.

These Hawks (7-6) are an offensively challenged group that relies on stifling defense to make life difficult for opposing teams. Coach Jamal Gomes’ squad averages 50 points per game, but it limits opponents to 47.1 per contest.

Why the scoring struggles? It’s fair to point to the departure of Lee Messier, one of Hendricken’s best players last season, who transferred to Tilton School.

North Kingstown (12-2) was on the receiving end of St. Raphael star Charles Correa’s 40-point effort last Friday, a 68-66 loss for the Skippers that marked their first setback of the season. Coach Aaron Thomas’ team, which still leads the Rhode Island Interscholastic League power points standings, rebounded with a 74-48 victory over Smithfield on Tuesday.

But the Skippers ran into some bad luck on Thursday, when Grant Gillis and Owen Heath were ill and sat out North Kingstown’s 53-46 loss to La Salle.
