Throwback: Ed Cooley Helps Central Win 1988 State Basketball Championship

Sunday would have been the day of the RIIL boys’ basketball state championship game. The game has been cancelled because of coronavirus.

To help fill the void, take a trip back to 1988, when Central was led by #21, Ed Cooley.

Yes… that Ed Cooley! The Providence College head men’s basketball coach grew up in south Providence and helped the Knights beat Bishop Hendricken in that championship game.
