Woonsocket Call - - Sports -

WOONSOCKET — It wasn’t per­fect, but the Woonsocket girls vol­ley­ball team se­cured a 25-16, 25-9, 23-25, 25-12 Di­vi­sion III home vic­tory over strug­gling Mt. Pleas­ant Wed­nes­day night.

“I like the fact that I was able to mix it up and look at new line­ups,” Woonsocket coach Wendy Mooney said. “Our prob­lem was we gave them more than half their points on ser­vice points.”

Woonsocket (7-2 Di­vi­sion III-North) is on the court at 4 p.m. to­day in Providence against Hope.

CLEVELAND — LeBron James won't play again this pre­sea­son, and there's a chance he'll miss Cleveland's hyped opener with Bos­ton.

James didn't prac­tice Wed­nes­day, a day af­ter he made his ex­hi­bi­tion de­but af­ter be­ing slowed by a sprained left an­kle sus­tained Sept. 27.

Cavs coach Ty­ronn Lue said the four-time MVP is sore and has been ruled out of Cleveland's fi­nal pre­sea­son game Fri­day night in Or­lando.

As for James' sta­tus for Tues­day night's game against the Celtics and for­mer Cavs All-Star guard Kyrie Irv­ing, Lue was non-com­mit­tal.

“Not sure,” Lue said. “Got treat­ment all day to­day, so I'm not sure if we should be con­cerned or not. But it's pretty sore to­day so we'll just see what hap­pens.”
