Turnovers plague JM again

Lindsey Krueger scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, but it wasn't enough as Owatonna dropped Rochester John Marshall 53-36 Tuesday night in Big Nine Conference girls basketball.

JM, which slipped to 2-14 in the league and 2-18 overall, was hurt again by turnovers.

"Until we eliminate unforced errors, the outcomes of games is not going to change," JM coach Terry Heiderscheit said.

Owatonna (8-8, 11-10) led 30-21 at intermission as it cruised to the win. The Huskies landed three players in double-figures, led by Jessica Plemel with 13 points.

Besides Krueger's 11 points, Krista Severson was also in double-figures for JM with 12 points. She made a trio of three-point field goals. Annie Block came off the bench to score eight points for the Rockets.
