  • Braves defeat Bulldogs

    LYNNVILLE—A high number of Cannelton turnovers allowed Tecumseh to beat the Bulldogs 73-48 in boys basketball Saturday.

    The Bulldogs committed 21 turnovers while the Braves gave up the ball only 12 times.  An aggressive defense by Tecumseh was the reason for the high turnover rate.

    “They played us aggressive man-to-man and we didn’t adjust to that,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.  “We made a lot of silly unforced turnovers. It was a learning experience.”
