INA - A heavy dose of turnovers spelled doom for the John A. Logan College women's basketball team Saturday as the Vols dropped an 84-57 decision at Rend Lake.
The Volunteers recorded 35 miscues, 20 in the first half, en route to the loss. Logan scored the first five points of the game and then fell back to a 37-28 deficit at the half.
The Lady Warriors (2-4 in the Great Rivers Athletic Conference and 4-7 overall) slowly increased the advantage in the second half on the outside shooting of Savannah Enlow and Mykhaela Tolds, who each marked for 13 points over the final 20 minutes.
Logan (2-5 in the league and 5-8 overall) was led offensively by sophomore center Alison Webb with 21 points. Fellow soph, Sarah Bailey, accounted for 15 points. Enlow and Tolds totaled 19 apiece to pace Rend Lake.
Vols head coach Marty Hawkins was frustrated with the loss, especially the turnovers.
"That's three games worth (36) for a good team," he said. "This is the second game in a row where we have had more turnovers than field goals, and in this case, about twice as many. The passes that we throw at times are floaters...what you might see at the junior high level. It's incredible. In my 36 years of coaching, I've never seen anything like it. I'm flabbergasted."
Logan has the week off and returns to action at Lake Land College in Mattoon Saturday at 5 p.m.
