February 27, 2015


PROVIDENCE – It was hard to tell if the absence of head coach T.J. Ciolfi made a significant difference in Woonsocket High’s 66-39 loss to La Salle Academy in a R.I. Division I Tournament semifinal at Rhode Island College’s Murray Center on Friday night.

Woonsocket Boys' Basketball | Novans hunt for another upset — minus their coach

February 26, 2015


WOONSOCKET – You can debate whether or not the two-game penalty of ejection from a high school basketball game is harsh.

Moments later, URI freshman Jared Terrell missed a wide-open 3-pointer from the left wing right in front of the URI bench and the Wildcats escaped the Ryan Center with a 60-59 road victory.
