    LEOPOLD—Perry Central forced 34 Tell City turnovers, including 19 on steals, to beat the Marksmen 65-27 in boys basketball Tuesday.
    The Commodores used their quickness and depth well in their full-court press. It bothered the Marksmen, who have less depth and quickness and were still without their regular point guard (Trent Zuelly) and forward-guard Matthew Watts, who missed the game with an injury.
