Following a familiar script, Narragansett takes control in the second half against Prout with scorching offense, 56-43.
KINGSTON – Using drives from guard Maggie Salomone to setup center Hannah Maymon, and transition layups from Chelsea Sahagian, the Narragansett Mariners distanced themselves from Prout in the second half en route to a 56-43 Division II girls’ basketball title win against Prout at the Ryan Center on Sunday afternoon. Narragansett stretched a 28-20 halftime lead with a 21-8 run over the first eight minutes of the second half and never looked back. Over the final 7:13, the Mariners killed the clock and controlled the game via Salomone’s dribbling. Prout didn’t have much of an answer for the speedy senior point guard. While she struggled a bit with her outside shot, not managing to hit a 3, she still finished with a game-high 16 points, and a …
