Too much pressure

Too much pressure

January 15th, 2011 in News

At times, the Jefferson City Jays displayed the fire that got them on a winning streak.

Then there were times they just looked lost.

Coming into the Central Bank Shootout, the Jays had ripped off five straight wins. That streak came to a screeching halt Friday night as the Jays turned the ball over 29 times in a 77-65 loss to Cape Girardeau Notre Dame at Rackers Fieldhouse.

"We're disappointed and certainly frustrated," Jays coach David Fox said. "We had some guys play totally out of character tonight for whatever reason.

"When you come off a championship (at the Joplin Tournament), you feel pretty good about yourself. ... We saw a pretty good team in Cape Girardeau Notre Dame, but I think we just didn't handle their pressure very well."

Jefferson City (7-5) turned the ball over 12 times in the first quarter and had 19 at the break.
