The Medora boys basketball team had taken some big steps forward in the three matchups prior to Saturday’s home game against Rock Creek Academy.

But the Hornets allowed the Lions to score 31 points in the second quarter, and they turned the ball over 26 times in a 67-44 loss.

“I liked our last three games because I felt like we had gotten better each game, but I’m not so sure about tonight,” Hornets coach Andrew Evertts said.

Turnovers and lack of solid defense, Evertts said, were the two big pitfalls.

“We had 27 (turnovers Friday) night, and somehow we won, which is pretty hard to do,” he said. “Turnovers have killed us all year long.”
