KINGMAN - A night after falling to Flagstaff Coconino in the final minute, Kingman High committed 27 turnovers in a 63-38 loss to Desert Edge in the opening round of the Desert Edge Scorpion Classic Tournament Wednesday in Goodyear.

"Once again, we didn't play very well on the back-to-back," said KHS coach Ron Anthony. "We turned the ball over quite a bit and that's where we lost the game."

The Bulldogs (2-2) committed 18 turnovers in the first half. KHS trailed 34-7 at halftime after being outscored 20-5 in the first quarter and 14-2 in the second.

"We missed a lot of layups and turned the ball over, and when you do that, you're going to get beat by good teams - and they are a good team," Anthony said. "We are playing on their home floor and we have to stop turning the ball over and (start) making our layups and we would be a good competitive team."

Rod Gilleo and Chayce Cumins led the Bulldogs with seven points.

The tournament continues through Saturday. KHS looked to end the two-game skid against Tolleson Thursday.

"We have five games in five nights and it's a good test to let us know where we are as a team," Anthony said. "It's early in the season, and I tell the kids, 'It's not how you start, it's how you finish.'

"Hopefully, we will pick it up again and give our best effort."

After the tournament, the Bulldogs will travel to Avondale Westview on Tuesday and Prescott on Thursday before returning home against Flagstaff on Friday.
