The men’s basketball team had one of those truly special seasons that come along only once in a long time this past winter. The Anchormen took Rhode Island College, the City of Providence and the entire state of Rhode Island on a joyous ride that found the program at the doorstep of the NCAA Div. III Men’s Basketball Tournament Final Four. When it was all said and done, Head Coach Bob Walsh’s team finished the season with a 27-4 overall record and reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA tourney. Rhode Island College’s magical run came to an end in an 81-69 loss at Amherst on Mar. 10. Of the Anchormen’s four losses on the season, two came at the hands of the Lord Jeffs, who went on to win the NCAA Div. III National Championship a week later in Salem, Va. RIC established a new school record for wins in a season, surpassing the 1968-69 squad’s previous high mark by three. The Anchormen, who were making their first NCAA tourney appearance since 1979, advanced deeper into the fray than any other team in school history. The Murray Center was the site for first and second round action of the NCAAs, with RIC hosting Brandeis, Trinity, and Coast Guard on Mar. 2-3. The Anchormen opened up with a spirited, 64-60, win over Cinderella and NEWMAC champs Coast Guard in front of a raucous crowd on Mar. 2. Senior guard Kinsey Durgin scored a game-high 18 points, while sophomore guard Bobby Bailey posted a double-double with 16 points and 13 boards. The Anchormen held off Brandeis the next night, earning a 70-67 win. Despite leading by 18 points with 10 minutes left in the second half, RIC found itself with a mere two point advantage with nine seconds left.
The annual Fall Homecoming continues to be very successful, so successful that many people wished it happened a number of times throughout the year. Additionally, over the past few years during the winter season, RIC has hosted reunions for basketball, gymnastics and wrestling alumni. The athletic department is pleased to announce that on the weekend of February 3, we will be combining many winter activities and more as the College plays host to its first Winterfest. It will be a weekend full of activities directed at students, alumni, parents and anyone else who is part of the College family. There will be sporting events, skating at the Bank of America Center, sleigh rides, an outdoor hot dog roast and much more! For more information on the 2007 Winterfest, check future editions of What’s News as well as the College website. Athletics Hits the Road! The athletic program, in cooperation with the Alumni Association, will be on the road in Florida from Jan. 30 - Feb. 2. There will be an event hosted by Wileen Coyne ’55 in Boca Raton on Jan. 31 and another event hosted by Ennis Bisbano ’55 at the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club on Feb. 1. Additionally, if anyone cannot attend one of those events, but is interested in meeting with athletic or developmental staff, feel free to contact us at (401) 456-8007. For further details about “RIC on the Road”, visit the College website or contact the alumni office. RIC will also be on the road in Florida the week of Mar. 12 in the Orlando and Tampa area as our outstanding softball and baseball teams travel to the Sunshine State for Spring Training. RIC Celebrates 30 Years of Women’s Athletics 2006-07 marks the 30th anniversary of the beginning of women’s varsity intercollegiate athletics at Rhode Island College. 1976-77 was the first year women’s teams began participating in organized varsity athletics and the College will celebrate this milestone with a gala event this spring. This event will honor pioneers, teams and individual achievements of female student-athletes and coaches over the past three decades. If you have a nomination idea, please contact Art Pontarelli ’71 via telephone at: (401) 456-8863, or by e-mail: email@example.com.
Meet the Head Coach Head Coach Scott Virgulak Scott Virgulak begins his second year as Rhode Island College's head baseball coach. He guided the Anchormen to a 21-18 overall record, the program's fourth straight 20-win campaign, and an 8-6 (third place tie) mark in the Little East Conference in his first season at the helm in 2010. He spent 2004-09 as an assistant coach under previous RIC boss Jay Grenier. During his time as an assistant, he primarily worked with the team's position players, while serving as the squad's third base coach during games. Off the field, he was instrumental in working with the team's recruiting efforts. Virgulak was an assistant coach with the Newport Gulls of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) from 2006-09. The Gulls captured the 2009 NECBL Championship, with Virgulak serving as the head coach during the deciding game in the playoffs. Virgulak was an assistant coach for the 2009 NECBL All-Star squad that played Team USA. He also was an assistant coach during the 2004, '05 and '06 NECBL midsummer classics. Prior to joining the Gulls staff, Virgulak was an assistant coach with the North Adams Steeplecats and was promoted to head coach during the 2005 season, leading the club to its first and only playoff series victory. He played two seasons of baseball at RIC in 2000 and 2001. The North Kingstown, Rhode Island native played in 59 games, starting 58 of the them. He posted a .286 career batting average with 43 runs, 61 hits, 33 RBI, 16 doubles, five home runs, 92 total bases, 33 walks and one stolen base. He recorded a .432 slugging percentage, a .382 on-base percentage and a .938 fielding percentage for his career. As a junior in 2000, Virgulak had an outstanding season and was named First Team All-Little East Conference at third base. He batted .377 with 24 runs, 43 hits, 16 RBI, 10 doubles and two home runs. Prior to coming to RIC, Virgulak played two seasons for Grenier at the Community College of Rhode Island.

Men’s Basketball Reaches ECAC Finals Anchormen Record Another Solid Season The Rhode Island College men’s basketball team posted a 19-10 overall record and reached the title game of the Eastern College Athle tic Confere nce (ECA C) New En gland Men’s B asketball Championship for the second consecutive year. Head Coach Bob Walsh, the third head coach for the Anchormen in as many years, led the Anchormen to a 9-5 record (third place) in the Little East Conference. After a disappointing loss to eventual champion UMass-Boston in the semifinals of the LEC Tournament, the Anchormen were once again selected to compete in the ECAC Tournament, made up of the top remaining squads in New England that did not receive NCAA Div. III Men’s Basketball Tournament bids. The four th-seeded Anchormen opened with a tough, 70-68, o ver time win against Coast Guar d at The Murray Center on Mar. 1. That set up a reunion with long-time nemesis and LEC foe: top-seeded Keene State on Mar. 3. RIC traveled to Keene, New Hampshire to take on the Owls at Spaulding Gymnasium, one of the toughest places to play in the Northeast, and completely dismantled KSC, downing the Owls Kevin Payette by 38 points in an 86-48 rout.

The PwC World Cup Index: what can the dismal science tell us about the beautiful game? Executive summary As the 2014 World Cup in Brazil draws closer, there is increasing interest in what makes a successful World Cup nation. This paper (which builds on an earlier one in 2010) contributes to this debate by using econometric analysis to test the correlation between several variables and World Cup performance. We aim to answer the following questions: Instead, we found a number of football-specific variables which explain World Cup performance better, such as the number of registered football players in each country and average football attendance levels. The other factors that we found to be important were a long-term footballing tradition and recent form as reflected in the FIFA world rankings. Which characteristics explain historic World Cup performance? Brazil are the favourites, England face a struggle in the Group of Death Which countries have underachieved and overachieved in past World Cups? Who are the strongest countries in the 2014 World Cup, and which group is the ‘Group of Death’? After identifying the extent to which different variables explain World Cup performance, we created a composite indicator which measures the relative strength of each competing country across a weighted average of these characteristics. This produces a ‘PwC World Cup Index’ that provides a novel way of assessing each country’s relative prospects in the 2014 World Cup.
Nearly one-third of the world's computers could be infected with malware, suggests a report released last week by the Anti-Phishing Working Group. Malicious apps invaded 32.77 percent of the world's computers, a more than 4 percent jump from the previous quarter's 28.39 percent, the report estimates. The increase in infected computers has come hand-in-hand with a jump in the appearance of malware samples, said Luis Corrons, technical director of PandaLabs, the research arm of Panda Security, one of the sponsors of the APWG report. "The creation of malware samples is skyrocketing," Corrons told TechNewsWorld. "It has doubled from the last quarter to the first quarter of this year." In the last quarter of 2013, some 80,000 malware samples a day were discovered by Panda researchers. In the first quarter of 2014, that number jumped to 160,000.
