Wildcat forward Chaz Wilson put up 24 points for the second night in a row, but it wasn't enough to overcome an impressive Breckinridge County team in a 75-47 loss on the road last night.
Wilson also put up double figures in the rebound column in back-to-back performances with 10 rebounds last night, but the Tigers had too many weapons they used against the Cats. When Edmonson County pressured outside shooters, Breckinridge found success with dribble penetration for easy baskets in the paint. When the Wildcats tried shutting down the paint, the Tigers took advantage of open looks behind the arc.
For the second night in a row, turnovers where once again a source of trouble for Edmonson County. The Cats committed 29 turnovers (28 on Monday night) against the Tigers that led to several layups for Breckinridge.
"We played hard, we didn't give up," said Coach Mac, "but we had 29 turnovers, which is 56 in two games. That's pretty much on the coach because I don't have them mentally ready, but that's going to change. They're playing hard, but making mistakes we don't need to be making."
The remaining scoring for the Wildcats was: Decker 9, Pierce 6, Spainhoward 2, Woosley 2, Meredith 2, Roof 2
Edmonson County will take on Warren East Friday night at home in a G/B doubleheader beginning at 6pm.
