Prep Girls Basketball
FLAGSTAFF — Hollie Dalton recorded her sixth double-double of the season with 13 points and 12 rebounds but it wasn’t enough as the Prescott girls basketball team lost 42-29 to Grand Canyon region rival Coconino on Monday night.
It is the second straight loss for the Badgers (3-3, 2-3 Grand Canyon), which started the season 3-1 including victories over Mohave (42-34), Cactus (57-28) and Mingus (39-33).
“We started a little slow in the first period and had eight turnovers,” Prescott head coach Bobbi Yoder said via email Tuesday.
The eight turnovers led to a 13-point deficit as the Badgers trailed 17-4 heading into the second quarter and couldn’t overcome.
“We will learn from this loss and try to fix our mistakes and come out ready to go Wednesday night,” Yoder said.
Prescott is scheduled to host the Panthers (5-1, 4-1 Grand Canyon) on Wednesday, Feb. 10. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
