Western forced only nine Arkansas-Little Rock turnovers Saturday night, but it’s the points the Toppers earned from them that had Head Coach Ken McDonald glowing.
McDonald noted Western’s 18 points off turnovers as one of the major reasons why the Toppers were able to snap a five-game road losing streak.
“We went down and made good decisions on the break when we turned them over,” McDonald told Western’s Big Red Radio. “It wasn’t like we were going 100 mph, trying to make a play.”
Another number McDonald liked?
Although the Toppers committed 13 turnovers as a whole, senior guard A.J. Slaughter neutralized many of them with 8 assists — marking the 10th straight game that Slaughter has recorded at least 4 assists.
“We can live with that,” McDonald said.
