Jeffersonville’s full-court pressure in the first half was smothering.
Seymour’s boys basketball team struggled to get the ball on its end of the court because of it, and the Red Devils limited the Owls to single-digit scoring in all four quarters of Friday’s Hoosier Hills Conference game and won 83-21.
Eight of Seymour’s 11 turnovers in the first quarter were a result of Jeffersonville steals. The Red Devils then forced seven more turnovers in the second quarter in building a 45-7 lead at halftime. Seymour finished with 26 turnovers to only nine for the home team.
“They are a very, very good basketball team,” Owls coach Scott Miller said of the Red Devils. “But our troubles have remained consistent. We have a huge turnover issue, and we’re really having a tough time finding scorers right now.
