Rhode Island Video Recap

20 Nov

The Cougars enjoyed a nice send off to their four-day trip to Toledo, Ohio, by CofC Director of Compliance Otto German, who starred for the Cougars from 1970-73, and athletics administrative assistant Patricia “P.C.” Clark, who offered words of encouragement as the team loaded up their caravan outside of the old John Kresse Arena on George Street.

Coach Cremins also had a special little visitor as former director of basketball operations Kyle Perry’s wife, Kristen, and their baby son, Kolton, said hello. Perry is now an assistant coach at USC Upstate and the Spartans were playing in the home-hosted 2010 ESPN Charleston Classic at Carolina First Arena.

Upon arriving in Detroit, the Cougars trekked a short 53 miles by bus across the state lines of Michigan into the  Buckeye State of Ohio. After a light practice at the Savage Arena on the campus of host Toledo, the team enjoyed dinner at the hotel and I caught some late-night snackers browsing the hotel gift shop for some treats 🙂

It’s amazing to think the Cougars have traveled to four states in the course of two short weeks in Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan and Ohio. Three-straight games versus Rhode Island, Illinois-Chicago and Toledo will prepare CofC well for its much-anticipated rematch with North Carolina next Sunday in Chapel Hill, N.C.
