WHITINGHAM — On Friday night, the Twin Valley varsity girls basketball team turned the ball over 31 times and lost to visiting MSJ, 46-29.
"It was really over after the first quarter," said Wildcats coach Buddy Hayford, whose team trailed 16-5 after the first eight minutes. "Their pressure was just way too much for my team."
Kirra Courchesne and Tayler Courchesne paced the hosts with 11 and eight points respectively. Sammy Morse followed with a nickel's worth, and Brianna Rafus ripped down seven rebounds.
Twin Valley will play at Leland & Gray on Wednesday.
