ALBANY -- Albany Tech went into halftime down by only one point, but in the second half they allowed complacency to settle in and as a result had a flurry of turnovers and saw a single-point deficit swell to double figure in a matter of minutes, and ultimately lost to Chattahoochie Valley, 78-69, on Tuesday.

But the Lady Titans battled back to cut their deficit to one point with one minute left in the game. But they couldn't find a way to pull ahead.

"We are getting better, but we have to cut down on our turnovers," said ATC coach Kenneth Williams whose team fell to 7-3 overall. "We are OK in a lot of areas, but we are not great in any (one) area. With the upcoming break, we are going to (have to) work hard to tighten up."

Brittany Thornton led ATC with 13 points while Ann Wilcher scored 12 points and grabbed 16 boards.

ATC faces West Georgia Tech next on Saturday.
