E arly in the first quarter, everyone in Gladstone’s gym knew how many miscues Westwood had committed.
“That’s three turnovers!” shouted Westwood coach Kurt Corcoran to his team amongst a quiet crowd.
It was as uncanny a start as one could expect from a team with a strong enough resume to be considered an early No. 1 in the UP. Turnover, turnover, turnover the night started, and it all left Corcoran baffled.
“I don’t know what to attribute the slow start to, other than a lack of focus,” he said after his team’s 50-32 win over the Braves Tuesday in Gladstone. “Everybody loves looking at and reading polls, but I think they may have gotten too big for their britches and think they’re a little better than they are.”
