Going into Wednesday’s game, the Wildcats had found a lot of success from pushing the pace offensively with a run-and-gun tempo en route to wins over Shawnee Heights and Turner. The Wildcats (2-1, ranked No. 9 in 5A) weren’t able to get out in transition as much on Wednesday, though, as they committed 33 turnovers against a veteran Gardner-Edgerton squad.
