NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- The MCLA men’s basketball team came into this year with just two conference wins in its last two season.   Tuesday night, that was all in the rear view mirror.   Freshman Noah Yearsley scored 19 points, and Pittsfield’s Keiland Cross had eight points and 12 rebounds in leading the Trailblazers to a 63-52 win over Framingham State in the quarter-finals of the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference tournament.   Third-seeded MCLA (10-15) moves on to Thursday’s semi-finals at No. 2 Bridgewater State (16-9), which beat the Trailblazers by margins of 11 and 13 points in their regular season meetings.   “This is

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- You know a program has arrived when moral victories just don’t cut it.   In that sense, the BART basketball team has arrived.   Moments after losing its league championship game on a late 3-pointer after rallying from 11 points down midway through the third quarter, the Wolf Pack players were quiet, dejected and, perhaps at some level, thinking about how they can change the script next season.   Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School knocked down a triple with 6.2 seconds on the clock to take a 39-38 win over a young but resilient BART squad and claim the B Division of the River Valley Athletic League.   “It's amazing what

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- It was not that long ago that the BART basketball team was the kind of program others might see as a doormat.   Now, the Wolf Pack is on the doorstep of winning a league championship.   Brandon Bamba scored 27 points Tuesday as Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School defeated Eagle Hill, 59-52, in the semi-finals of the River Valley Athletic League’s B Division Tournament.   On Thursday afternoon at the North Adams Armory, BART will host the league title game -- a far cry from the program’s early days.   “Two years ago, we were getting beaten by 60 and 70 points per game,” BART coach Rob Daugherty said after

  Since Pete Fenson and the U.S. men's bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, things have not gone well for USA curling at the Olympics. In 2010, both the men's team. and the women's team. finished last during the preliminary round. In 2014, the United States won only three of their eighteen combined ga.m.es with the men finishing ninth and the women tenth after the round-robin tournament   The United States should be moving up in 2018, but how much better and do any U.S. teams stand a chance to medal?   The 2018 Winter Olympics will begin with the new Olympic event of mixed doubles curling. Matt Hamilton and Rebecca Hamilton will represent the United States.
