Seward's 32 turnovers gave them no chance of winning Wednesday night in the Hutchinson Sports Arena. The #19 Jayhawk West favorites beat Seward 73-56. Seward head coach Toby Wynn says his team can't win that way. "When you play teams like that, you can't do what we did," Wynn said. "We handed them 32 turnovers. I can live with 15 or 16 turnovers, but when you turn it over 18 more times than you should and you give a team like Hutch 18 extra possessions, it's hard to beat a team like that when they get that many more possessions than you do."
Hutchinson (14-1, 1-0) won the points off turnovers category 29-11. Ashlyn Knoll scored 14 for Seward in the loss. Seward hosts Barton Saturday night at 6 p.m. on B107.5 and kscbnews.net.
