Cavaliers hold off Bobcats, 45-38

January 30, 2014

HAMLET — Culver Community’s boys basketball team encountered a good news-bad news situation Wednesday.
First, the good news for the Cavs — a 45-38 victory over host Oregon-Davis at The Den following an eight-day weather-induced layoff for both squads.
The bad news, though, cropped up when the crunch-time turnover woes that led to three losses in the Cavs’ previous four games resurfaced, reducing a 16-point Culver cushion midway through the fourth frame to the seven-point final margin.
“We didn’t execute down the stretch,” Culver head coach Kyle Elliott said. “We built a nice lead in the fourth quarter. We called a timeout to talk about how we needed to zero in defensively, focus, and we’ve got to take care of the basketball. Instead we probably had four turnovers late in the game after we’d talked about taking care of the basketball. That’s disappointing.
“We’re always happy for a win,” he added. “But it’s definitely time for us to make better decisions with the basketball. Turnovers late in the game have plagued us in two close conference losses.”
