1968 Dave Denelle and Glenn Lampinski combined for 38
points as the league-leading Darlington Plains downed Ten Mile 50-38 in a YMCA Youth Basketball League tilt. Lampinski caged a game-high 20 points and Denelle fired in 18 as the Plains posted its ninth victory without a loss. In other action, Rick Chadwick netted 25 points in adding to his individual scoring lead as St. Martin’s routed Woodlawn Baptist 50-30.
1988 Lincoln’s seven-foot center Jim Dickinson poured in 23
points, pulled down eight rebounds and blocked five shots in a solid performance to pace Lincoln to a 62-48 win over Warwick Vets to remain very much in contention for at least a share of the Class B-One title. Jeff Dunn contributed 12 points and eight caroms, Darren Lee, normally the Lions’ best outside shooter, turned playmaker and dished out seven assists and Paul Dalpe added nine points. Lincoln has a 13-3 league mark and is one game behind Cranston East who they visit next week in the regular-season finale for both quintets.
1998 Leland Anderson of Attleboro and Saint Raphael Acad
emy’s Robert Griffin are battling neck-and-neck for the Times area schoolboy scoring crown with Anderson averaging 26.7 points per game and Griffin close behind with a 26.2 mark. Rounding out the top five point-getters are Akbar Abdullah of Davies (21.9 ppg), Shea’s Pete Silva (21.9) and in fifth place with 21.6 ppg is Rohan Russell of Davies. Russell is the leader in three-point field goals with 77, Silva has the single-game scoring high of 48 points and Justin Strothoff of Lincoln is the pacesetter in free throw accuracy at 82.6% (57-of-69).
