The Coffeyville Community College Men's Basketball team closed out the regular season with 16 straight victories when they defeated Butler County Saturday afternoon 80 - 74. The Ravens had as much as a 15 point lead in the second half before the Grizzlies fought back to come within 1 but in the last several minutes the Red Ravens put on a display as to why they are the conference champs to widen the gap and seal the win. The Raven were led by Casey Benton with 17 points while Marvin Johnson added 14. The Ravens by virtue of their 28-2 record and regular season conference championship have earned a bye in the first round of the Region 6 Tournament which starts Wednesday. The Ravens will have a week off before they begin play in the second round of the tournament next Sunday afternoon at 1pm. Their first opponent in the tournament has yet to be determined.
Meanwhile the Lady Ravens fell to the Women's conference champions Lady Grizzlies 67 - 42. The Lady Ravens will play in a first round Region 6 Tournament game this Wednesday on the road but as of yet don't know who they will face.
