There might not be too much from the second half of Thursday’s home game with Hauser that will be in the Brownstown Central girls basketball team’s season highlight reel.

After turning the ball over 10 times in the first half, the Braves piled up 14 in the third quarter and only scored 10 points. They had eight more miscues in the final quarter to finish with a season-high 32 turnovers.

But toward the end of the game, Brownstown made some free throws and defensive stops and pulled out a 54-43 victory.

“I thought we started the game really strong the way we needed to, and our press was being effective, and we caused some turnovers for them,” Braves coach Karla Rieckers said. “Then, we just kind of get satisfied and stand around. We need to make sure that we put together a consistent game, and tonight just was very up and down for us.”
