Tigers dealt a third loss in Mid-Del tourney



The Tigers will have some time in the gym to set things straight. They don’t play again until Friday, when they will travel to Del City to face a squad that beat them 62-53 on Friday.

The good news for NHS is that, while the Tigers didn’t play particularly well over the weekend, they weren’t bad either. They were able to amass large leads against both Putnam City North and Enid and were able to keep up with Del City’s frenetic pace and aggressive defense.

The problem was they weren’t able to do it for four quarters; a problem Thornton said has plagued his team all season.

“We’ve played really well at times, but we’ve played really bad at times as well,” he said. “We don’t have any consistency yet. It’s not a lack of effort or experience any more, we’ve just got to find a way to be more consistent.”
