MARION -- Waterloo Columbus Coach John Holmes said he couldn't understand why his team started out so sluggish against the Marion Indians Tuesday night. Then he answered his own question.
"They're a very good team," Holmes said. "They play a real aggressive halfcourt man-to-man defense that caused way too many turnovers for our guys."
Indeed, the Sailors had seven turnovers in the first quarter alone, falling behind 15-3. Then they committed five more before taking a shot in the second quarter, had three others before the half and trailed by 20.
Marion, meanwhile, methodically scored almost at will on steals and layups to take an easy 63-27 Wamac Conference West Division win at Marion.Read more...
