Putnam City West just can’t catch a break. The Patriots are 1-4, but are only five points away from being 4-1.
The Patriots have dropped three of their last four games by two points or less.
Last Tuesday, Mustang hit a buzzer-beater to down PCW 66-64.
Friday, in the first round of the Bartlesville tournament, the Patriots lost 36-35 to Bentonville, Arkansas. Tonight they fell to Bartlesville, 41-39.
Putnam West can blame its misfortune on inexperience.
Each of the Patriots big men, (6-8, 6-7, 6-5) are sophomores. They start only one senior.
If these young guys can learn how to finish a game, they could cause the rest of class 6A some trouble.
