Late turnovers doom Novans in loss to Blue Wave

January 2, 2013

WOONSOCKET -- Luis Garcia may have nailed an NBA-length trey at the buzzer, but it wasn’t enough for Woonsocket High on Wednesday night.
The Villa Novans committed 23 turnovers – including 14 in the final half – and converted just 10 of 24 from the charity stripe (41.7 percent) and ultimately dropped a 54-46 Division I crossover decision to Hope High before a crowd of perhaps 100.
After head coach Kyle Ivey-Jones’ bunch overcame a 29-22 deficit with 11:59 left in the second stanza, slicing the deficit to 34-30, Hope later mustered an 11-2 run in the span of 3:47 to seal the victory.
