HUMBOLDT — On a night where the Humboldt Cubs committed 17 turnovers, and shot a measly 10 of 22 from the charity stripe, head coach David Taylor was not afraid to admit his side was outplayed by a determined Osage City.
The Indians ran wild through the first three quarters, holding a 20-point advantage entering the final period. Humboldt battled in the fourth, but it was too little too late as Osage City held on for the 60-55 victory in the first round of substate play, and ending the Cubs season.
“It’s what they were doing, not us. They beat us,” Taylor said. “They ran their stuff, and they beat us.”
