Lady Cats’ turnovers equal Friday night home court loss

The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats learned a simple lesson on Friday – it’s hard to score without the basketball.

One game after notching their first district victory of the season, the Lady Cats had turnover issues Friday against Mount Pleasant, and that was the primary reason for the 47-38 loss at Wildcat Gym.

SSHS committed a season-low 12 turnovers against Texas High last week in their victory, but had 28 miscues against Mount Pleasant – double the amount the Lady Tigers committed. Seventeen of  the Sulphur Springs turnovers occurred in the first half, when Mount Pleasant built a 12-point lead, 22-10.
