NELSON — The championship game of the Lawrence-Nelson holiday basketball tournament came down to two aspects of the game — free throws and turnovers.
The Kenesaw girls team took better care of the ball and made more clutch free throws down the stretch to defeat Wilcox-Hildreth 45-36 to win the tournament. The Blue Devils (4-5) committed 24 turnovers to the Falcons' 26. Kenesaw head coach Jace Morgan said transition points were key for his team.
"We do a pretty decent job on our press. We've really come to depend on those fast-break points. We need them," Morgan said. "Luckily tonight, we got a few. We're still missing a whole bunch of them, but we're getting a lot of steals, which is giving us more looks."
