    The ability to break down Mercy’s full-court defense eluded Collins girls’ basketball on Wednesday night, as the Titans turned the ball over a whopping 30 times in a 81-51 home loss to the Jaguars.

    “[Mercy] is an awesome basketball team,” Titans coach Sean Pigman said after the game. “Their [Mercy’s] record doesn’t reflect how good of a team they are. We reached out and scheduled them because we want to play good teams, and that’s how you get better.”
