Due to poor free-throw shooting from the Red Ravens (2-10 in the first half), Allen was able to hang around until late in the half when Coffeyville extended their lead to 21 points leading 47 to 26 at the half. Early in the second half Coffeyville pushed their lead to 30 points, as Allen turned the ball over which led to easy baskets for the Red Ravens.

A quick recap of Red Raven Basketball from over the weekend as both teams hosted the Neosho County Panthers out of Chanute Kansas.
The Lady Red Ravens kicked off the night with a very competitive battle, both teams came in well under .500 and played very hard to try and get out of bottom of the eastern standings. At the half it was 33 to 30 Coffeyville after putting up a strong 2nd quarter giving them the momentum they would need. A competitive 3rd an 4th quarter we’re close but ultimately won by the Red Ravens as the ladies scored well as a team shooting 45% from the floor. Putting 4 players in double digits with the leading scorer at 21 being Tatiana McCree. Ladies get their 4th win on the season at home 80 to 69 over Neosho.
The men’s side of things was a one-sided affair throughout the game. Coffeyville exploded in the first half shooting 77% from the floor, 60% from 3-point land and nearly 80% from the line. A prolific stat sheet saw a huge lead at the half for the Ravens as they were up in the Panthers 67 to 31. The second half was a true test of stamina and reliance for the Red ravens. Being up so much it can be difficult to stay motivated though Coffeyville did everything they needed and more to complete the blow out win. 5 players we’re in double digits with Marvin Johnson and Keon Queen both with 18. The team finishes above 50% in every shooting category and wins handily 117 to 77.

Not to be over shadowed by the big record-breaking win for head coach of the men’s basketball team Jay Herkelman, the Lady Red Ravens played an incredible game, putting forth their best four quarters at home all year.
Hosting the Lady Red Devils from Allen County in the first part of the double header, as they came into the game with a very similar 3-16 record and one place behind Coffeyville in the Eastern Jayhawk Conference standings at 1-7. An even ball game through the first half was led the way by sophomore Tatiana McCree who had 11 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists through 2 quarters as Coffeyville had Allen by 7 at the half 36 to 29. Coffeyville, who has been known to struggle in the 3rd quarter, came out of the locker room with energy and put a big spot on Allen County scoring 29 points in the third and keeping the Lady Red Devils to only 10. With a sizable lead heading into the final quarter, A.C.C. came out strong and gave their best effort, but great shooting, and solid clock management by the ladies and head coach Harrel was to much for the come back as Coffeyville cruises to victory 89 to 63 riding off of that huge 3rd quarter.

The Coffeyville Red Ravens returned to their home court this afternoon for the first time in 2019. Both men’s and women’s teams hosted the Dodge City Community College Conquistadors. The men came into this game at 3-0 early through 2019 and 15 and 2 throughout the whole year. The ladies are 1-1 in 2019 and currently 2 and 14 entering the game as they got the afternoon kicked off first. From the beginning it was a defensive battle as both teams had many takeaways but both struggled to hit from the floor. Second quarter struggles continued from the floor as both teams finished just 20% shooting, though the lady Red Ravens led 28-22 at the half. In the third quarter Dodge City looked refreshed and gained momentum but was quickly given up by CCC’s ability to take the ball away. An intense 4th quarter saw 3 lead changes and few very important free throws for Coffeyville, which they were able to hit. Late game strategy and forcing turnovers give the ladies another win and an impressive one at that as they win 55 to 49 to start the double header off on the right foot.
The men played directly after the women’s game, coming in winners of 3 of their last 4 and happy to be back on their home court. You’d think intensity and energy would be on the Red Ravens side though it was Dodge City that came out and surprised everyone, using their speed to break the press, and knocking down an unusual amount of 3s giving themselves a significant distance between them and CCC, and at one point led by 9 points through the first half. After giving up 30 points in the first ten minutes, coach Herkleman rallied the guys with a timeout demanding better defense. Which is exactly what they did, only allowing 8 more point to be scored by Dodge City and hitting timely free throws gave Coffeyville the lead before half by a score of 44 to 40. By the time the second half came around Coffeyville’s offense turned on the jets and gave themselves a decent lead through the first 10 minutes of the 2nd half which they then coasted to victory on. 4 players scored in double digits as the Red Ravens win their 4th straight by a score of 108 to 80 finishing the sweep of Dodge City.
That moves coach Herk to now just 3 games away from being the winningest head coach in region 6 history and Coffeyville to 16 and 2 on the year. Busy week next week starting on Monday as both Men and women teams will host Cowley College on Monday on Jay Herkleman court at Nellis Hall.
The Dragon boys get the 55-52 win to move 8-0. Nado fall to 4-4. Fouls were a big issue for Coffeyville. Dispite the loss FKHS played what might have been their most complete game this season. Next up the Nado have the Chanute tournament starting Thursday.
Pittsburg girls get their first win beating Coffeyville 48-36 Coffeyville falls to 1-7 the Nado girls get a week off and then they’ll head to Oklahoma the following week for the Jay tournament.
The Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens were back in action last night out in Colby Kansas against Colby Community College. Both the men's and women's teams played starting with the women who are coming off a big win last week against N.O.C. Tonkawa.
The women kicked off the night with a very competitive battle throughout the game. C.C.C. a team that doesn’t score much and relies on their defense to keep them in games, did just that. Only allowing 59 points against the Lady Trojans but that was still not enough as they did not close the gap late in the game. A few fouls and a handful of missed baskets disallowed the ladies to complete a comeback as they get beat 59 to 51 to start the night.
The men followed with a late tip off after a long day of travel facing off against the Trojans, hoping to split the series down the middle. Trojans came into the night at 8 and 6 as a team that can score quickly and efficiently just like Coffeyville but could they defend against the Red Ravens? In a game that was not a blowout but never really that close the Red Ravens held an early lead and coasted to yet another victory after making clutch baskets, playing great defense and stopping any sort of momentum Colby tried to gain. A solid win for the men as they win by a score of 88 to 70 and are now 15 and 2 on the year moving head coach Jay Herkelman to 4 games from being the winiest head coach in region 6 history.

This was their final game on the home court for 2018 before they head to break as the ladies entered the game at 1 and 11, the men quite the opposite at 11 and 1 on the year and #3 in the national rankings.
The ladies tipped off first and from the start could not find a leader on the offensive side. Having a lack of veteran presence definitely affected the ladies last night, though they played very hard defensively forcing 28 turnovers, though they only scored 10 points off that. Shooting 25% from the floor 27% from 3 and only 63 percent from the line. The ladies take a tough home loss 58 to 47 proving again they can compete with anyone defensively, just struggle to hit shots.
The guys played right after as they welcomed the 6 and 6 Bronc Busters on to Jay Herkelman Court at Nellis Hall. A team that usually likes to drive and run with the basketball came out and surprised everyone shooting great from the floor keeping things interesting after one half with the score at 46 to 38. When the second half came around, CCC’s strengths really showed as they shot incredible from the floor finishing 63% from the floor, 55% from three point land and 61% from the line. They had 4 players on double digits with sophomore Marvin Johnson leading the way with 18 points, 4 rebounds and 5 assists. Red Ravens get their 12th win on the year moving to 12 and 1 and still unbeaten in conference play as they beat Garden City 92 to 71, moving coach Herk just 7 games away from breaking Francis Flax’s record of most wins as a coach in Region VI.

The Coffeyville Red Ravens were back on the hardwood tonight as they faced off against the Ottawa JV Braves. On paper the Coffeyville Red Ravens were clear favorites to win this game though they still needed to improve upon some faults they made over the weekend. Not knocking down shots and tacking up foul numbers was a clear area they needed to improve upon coming off two wins over the weekend. C.C.C. from the tip came out strong forcing turnovers and scoring on those turnovers as they put up 43 points off of those takeaways throughout the night. They got big play from many key players as well as a few new numbers we’re not used to seeing. Starters Casey Benton, Marvin Johnson and Manny Crump all score in the double digits, but they got huge play off the bench from a key bench player from last year Anthony Jones. He finished the top scorer with 21 points, 3 assists and 2 rebounds. Jones led a very impressive scoring parade by the rest of C.C.C. as they handle the braves with no problem. Finishing the first half up leading 71 to 39 shooting over 50% from all 3 shooting categories. Those numbers did not diminish in the 2nd half as the abundance of scoring continued. Getting big play from another freshman Tony Hutson who scored all 12 of his points from 3 shooting 4 of 6 from deep in the second half and the Red Ravens continued to push down on the gas pedal and score more and more. They finish the night shooting 54-91(59%) from the floor, 21-46(45%) from 3 and shot 72% from the free throw line. A prolific score line finds the Red Ravens with one of their biggest wins in school history. They beat the Ottawa JV Braves 139 to 69 in an easy home game victory as they prepare for a holiday weekend and a tough test next week to wrap up November. Next Wednesday they will host another top 25 national matchups at home as the Blue Dragons from Hutchinson travel to Jay Herkleman Court at Nellis Hall to challenge the Ravens. If the shoot the way they did, and keep emphasizing limiting those foul numbers, there’s not to many to teams in the nation that could win, though Hutch proves to be a tough test next week. Tip of at 7PM next Wednesday covered on 98.1 KUSN FM
