Two of Adams Central three leading scorers, Olivia Macklin and Jenae Blackburn, hit early jumpers to give the Lady Jets a 5-0 lead to start the game.
According to Churubusco Head Coach Jamie Perlich, the teamâs lack of readiness was apparent from tip-off.
âWe didnât come out focused. We had a good practice last night and we didnât carry that over. We started out flat,â Perlich said.
Adams Central got a steal on âBuscoâs next possession and missed two scoring chances, unable to take advantage of the turnover.
It was a rare missed opportunity, as the Lady Eagles turned the ball over 21 times, leading to 10 Lady Jets points.
âWe played decent in the first half, but we had a lot of unforced turnovers; bad passes, bad looks,â said Perlich.
