The Lady Huskies had 21 turnovers in the first half as Guymon jumped out to an insurmountable lead.
“They beat us bad last night,” Broadbent said. “The only good thing is maybe it served as a wakeup call for the team.”
If the loss didn’t, the 7 a.m. Friday practice, and Broadbent’s “come to Jesus” meeting may have.
“Last night was unacceptable. We have to play up to our potential,” he said.
Kiana Taylor scored 8 points for the Lady Huskies.
Tonkawa (boys) 53, Pawhuska 36
Pawhuska’s boys basketball team scored just 11 points in the first half. Matthew Miles scored six points in the first minute, but the Huskies could only muster 5 points in the final 15 of the first half, Christenson said.
“It was bad. It was the worst effort I’ve ever been a part of,” Christenson said. “It was the laziest, most lacking of intensity game that I’ve ever coached.”
Christenson did praise Miles, Hunter Hurd and Tre Harper for the effort they put forth in Thursday’s loss.
