Turnovers crippled the Warriors on Monday night as the team suffered their fourth straight loss 68-108 against Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO.
“We struggled tonight offensively in that first half,” Warriors Coach Matt Sanders said. “We turned the ball over against their press early. We had twenty turnovers and only five assists at the half. We struggled with patience. and were not strong with the ball.”
As the second half went on the Warriors did execute offensively and were beginning to make a run but still struggled defensively. “We have to learn how to play team defense,” stated Sanders. “Until we can move our feet defensively we will continue to struggle with stopping athletic teams from the field. Our highlights tonight were Peter Brandel, Seth Hower, and Braydon Unruh. Braydon led us on the night with 27 points while Peter added thirteen points, four rebounds and two steals. Seth gave us some solid minutes off the bench. It was also good to see us hit 76% from the line tonight.
With the loss, the Warriors fall to 0-4 on the season. Next up, the team will be in action on December 1 as they battle Ozark Christian College in Joplin.
