Minot High girls basketball vs. No. 1 Bismarck pregame

Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers.
If the Minot High girls basketball team can keep that troublesome word to a minimum tonight, the Majettes (8-5 overall, 6-4 West Region) could send top-ranked Bismarck (11-1, 9-0) home with its first in-state loss all year. Minot hosts the Demons at 7:30 tonight at Magic City campus.
Here's what happened when the two squads played in the state capital on Dec. 12:
The Demons are as balanced as any team in the state. Bismarck's Keisha Engelhardt (17.5 points per game), Courtney Troller (14.9 ppg) and Kenzie Kiefer (13.6 ppg) are all among the region's top seven scorers. Engelhardt snares 10.4 rebounds per game to average a double-double and Ashlee Hilzendeger posts five steals a contest.
As long as Minot can keep turnovers to a minimum, it has the balance to offset Bismarck's high-scoring trio and maybe, just maybe, pull off the upset.
