Hawks Advance, Take Down Skippers, 53-49

In what proved to be an unbelievable game broadcast live right here on The Network, the Hawks' emergent chemistry and evident determination were on full display tonight, as our guys gutted out what is probably the biggest victory of the season by defeating the number 2 seed in the Division I playoffs, North Kingstown, 53-49.  Time and again as the game wound down into its closing minutes, the Hawks continually found a way to make the key play, hit the key shot, and clamp down on the defensive end.  Will Tavares, Ryan Hagerty, and Kazre Cummings continue to guide the team during the toughest moments of the game when the team needs leadership most.  Matt Duffie was also the steady hand throughout the game in quarterbacking the team from the point.

The Providence Journal has several notes on the game, including a brief summary of the game's highlights, a photo gallery, and the entire transcript from the live chat during the game.

The Hawks advance to the next round of the Division I playoffs this Friday night at 6:30 at CCRI in Warwick.  Barring any complications, the game should, once again, be broadcast live right here on The Network.

In the Ustream section can be found all the footage from tonight's game.  Apologies in adavance if the quality isn't the greatest, as we didn't have our standard equipment available.  Enjoy.
