Girls basketball: Turnover trouble trips up Tigers


The word seems to have gotten out around the Missota Conference that Farmington has a tough time dealing with full-court defensive pressure.

Eighth-ranked New Prague and Holy Angels both visited Tiger Gym last week and used their press to give the Tigers problems. The Trojans forced 24 turnovers in their 60-45 win last Tuesday and the Stars came to town Friday and limited the home team to 13 first-half points while forcing 24 turnovers in a 51-35 decision.
