DeKalb girls basketball coach: 'We had some breakdowns today where we let them drive down the middle. We didn’t stop the ball on transition and have help side. It’s really drilling those consistent fundamentals in their brain where it becomes natural for us.'
DeKALB – DeKalb girls basketball coach Tyler Bantz let out a big sigh midway through the second quarter Monday after sophomore Kayla Webb passed the ball to an opposing player.
Fresh out of a timeout on the following possession, senior Rocky Mills threw the ball out of bounds, which resulted in Bantz raising his hands to his face in frustration.
The Barbs tried their best to keep the MLK Jr. Tournament game against the Crusaders close with scrappy defensive play, but stretches like DeKalb’s back-to-back turnovers didn’t help as the host school fell to Rockford Lutheran, 58-48, in the losers bracket Monday afternoon.
