The Barrington High School boys’ basketball season came to an end Sunday afternoon following a 62-39 loss to North Kingstown in the state open tournament quarterfinals.
Though Barrington got out front with a quick two-point lead to start the game, North Kingstown quickly took control in domineering fashion. The Skippers scored 18 unanswered points during the first half and went into the break with a 30-14 lead.
“We fell behind 18-2 and that was kind of all she wrote. We never rebounded from that,” said head coach Patrick Sullivan.
North Kingstown pulled ahead further with a 9-0 run in the second half. The Eagles never drew within 25 of North Kingstown following the run.
“I think, obviously, they’re a very good team. We mixed up different defense and they scored pretty much against every defense we played. They hit a lot of shots, we did not,” Sullivan said.
“They’re a very good basketball team. I was hoping we could kind of hang around a little bit more in the first half and kind of put some pressure on them but they did everything they had to do.”
Sophomore forward Kevin Mannix lead Barrington with 11 points followed by senior forward Jared Silk with eight.
