Turnovers prove costly to Cougars in loss to Eagles.
The O’Fallon Christian Academy Eagles basketball team’s defense and rebounding certainly created a lot of scoring opportunities in last night’s contest against the Lutheran St. Charles Cougars at Lutheran. The Cougars committed 15 turnovers in the 71-58 loss to Christian while the Eagles committed 10. “In the Fox Tournament, we had two really tough games,” O’Fallon coach Dave Meers said. “We had a lot of defensive intensity. It was the name of the game for us tonight. The thing we really wanted to focus on was man-to-man and cutting off the lane, making them shoot outside.
