Nado Improve to 2-2 in SEK Play

 

Field Kindley gets back on the winning side beating rival Independence 56-44. Indy would start the game strong holding a lead for much of the first quarter. Easton Ewing's size was a miss-match early as he had 13 first-half points, but Coffeyville capitalizes when Ewing would take a breather on the bench as they jumped out to a 28-24 lead at the half.

 

The Nado, on the back of a strong performance from Tariq Logan, would pull away from Indy in the second half. Logan had 29 points, 15 in the second half and a three-pointer that put an end to a small Indy run. Nado boys looking to get over .500 in league play as they take on Parsons tomorrow.

Lady Nado Fall to Indy, Lady Bulldogs 5-0 in SEK

 

Independence Lady Bulldogs and Abby Veile just too much for the Lady Nado to handle tonight as they fall 57-45. Veile was dominant from start to finish, with 24 first-half points and 34 points total for the game. A back and forth first quarter would see Indy with a three-point lead 15-12. The Lady Bulldogs would slowly start to build on that lead with a 30-22 halftime lead and then a 43-30 lead after three quarters.

 

The Lady Nado saw valuable minutes from three freshmen, Amyah Moore Kendrex, Teagan Titus, and Sidney-Lynn Burnett and Head Coach Anita Walker says they are the energy of the team. Adyson Peck would lead Nado scorers with 19 followed by Kyleigh Flores with 12. No rest for the Nado as they take on Parsons tomorrow night at 6:00pm.

Tough Matchup Awaits CCC to Start Conference Schedule

 

CCC will have a good chance to test the strength of both its men's and women's basketball teams as they travel to Hutchinson Community College on Wednesday.

 

Both Blue Dragons squads were predicted to finish first in the Western Division of the Jayhawk Conference, according to the preseason coaches poll. The men started their season with an 87-71 victory over Seminole State College, while the women defeated the Bethany College JV 92-34.

Coffeyville Completes Non-Conference Schedule with Win

The Coffeyville Red Ravens men's basketball team completed their non-conference schedule with another dominating performance, this time 94-51 over the Labette Community College Cardinals.

 

Although Labette would score the game's first points, Coffeyville would take the lead almost immediately, and never really looked back. The Red Ravens started the game on a 22-3 run, and allowed just 13 points total through the first half.

 

Much like the first game of the season, Coffeyville employed a balanced scoring attack. Four players reached double digits, including leading scorer Blaise Keita (14), Tylor Perry (13), Kevaughn Ellis (11) and Hayden Brittingham (11). Only Brittingham had reached double-digits in Wednesday's game.

 

Now 2-0, the Red Raven men will rejoin the women for their first conference matchup, a tough road affair against Hutchinson. The Blue Dragons were picked to finish first in the eastern division of the Jayhawk Conference, while the Red Ravens were picked to finish first in the west.

Nado Drop Second Game of Tournament

 

Game two of the Ralph Miller Classic and another tough loss for the Nado boys basketball team falling to Carthage 79-30. Field Kindley started the game quickly getting a 4-0 but then Carthage would go on a 16-0 run and wouldn't look back as they led 39-19 at the half.

 

The Tigers were led by great shooting performances from Max Templeman who had 21 points and Joel Pugh who was 6/9 from beyond the arc with 18 points. Nado Head Coach Tyler Thompson says they have a tough stretch of games coming up.

 

FKHS will tip-off tomorrow for their final game of the tournament at 12:45pm as they take on Emporia.

Coffeyville Men Look Toward Formal Rematch with Labette

Both the Red Ravens and the Cardinals are 1-0 on the season, with CCC defeating Missouri State University - West Plains on Wednesday and Labette holding a victory over Allen Community College. Despite both teams belonging to the Jayhawk Conference, Labette plays in Division II, making this a non-conference affair for the Red Ravens.

 

Head coach Jay Herkelman said the Cardinals are aggressive and have some athletes at their disposal.

CCC Basketball Starts Strong

 

The 2021 season began with a bang for the Coffeyville Community College Red Ravens, as both the men and the women picked up blowout victories in non-conference play.

 

The CCC women, picked to finish third in the preseason conference poll, came out agressive and strong against the Southwest Christian JV squad for the 111-56 victory. A 20-3 run right at the beginning of the game pretty much put the game out of reach. With the lead so large, including a 29-point deficit at the half, Coffeyville could afford to experiment with its full lineup. All 14 rostered players scored points during Wednesday's game, with Amiya Josey leading the way with 21 points. Head coach Tony Turner said getting players on the floor helps the team get better.

 

After the break, it was the men's time to shine, taking on a cross-border foe in Missouri State University - West Plains. Although the Red Ravens returned four players from the 2020 roster, only two started the contest against the Grizzlies. Throughout the game, Coffeyville employed a five-man in, five-man out strategy that seemed to keep players rested and strong, and built a lead off of that. The Red Ravens also showed amazing athleticism that went deep into the roster. Much like the women before them, the men would never trail in the game and eventually walked off with an 86-46 victory. Debuting guard Markeith Browning led the way with 12 points, with Bostyn Holt and Hayden Brittingham each adding 11 as well. After the game, head coach Jay Herkelman said he knows the offense can do better, but did struggle against a rarely-seen defense.

 

Both CCC teams are now 1-0 on the season. The men will break off for a brief moment, taking on Labette Community College in a men's only contest on Saturday before both teams hit the road next Wedneday, traveling to Hutchinson.

The Caney Valley Bullpups stepped out of league play Tuesday night as they were able to knock off the Chelsea Dragons by a score of 61-55. This was a replacement game for the Bullpups after having the Caney Valley tournament in Ramona, Oklahoma being canceled last week.

 

Coach Jim Deaton said even though his team got down by 12 early on, he liked the way his team responded to the adversity.

 

Caney's next league match-up is against Eureka and Deaton says it's never easy against Eureka and says one of the keys to victory is on the boards.

Sedan Overcomes Slow Start to Top Udall

 

The Sedan boys' basketball team overcame a slow start to eventually dispatch the Udall Eagles 69-45 in our first Game of the Week.

 

The Blue Devils (4-1) came out slowly, struggling to find open shots. Leading scorer Dameion Hatten was held scoreless through the first eight minutes, a major factor that helped the Eagles (1-9) jump out to an 11-2 lead.

 

After the first quarter came to a close at just 13-6, Hatten would get things going with a few quick baskets early in the second. Hatten's production would put a spark in the rest of the team, as Sedan would surpass Udall at 16-15 and would never look back. 

 

Hatten led all scorers with 31, and sophomore Koda Blankenship would also add 12 to the Blue Devils total. Austin King led all Udall scorers with 16, while Trent Whiteman added 15 himself.

Despite the comeback effort the Nado fall to Fort Scott 61-52. Gavin Pytlowany lead Fort Scott with 21 points and Tariq Logan lead all scorers with 28 points. Next up Labette County on Friday.

Lady Nado Drop First Home League Game

 

First league home game for the Field Kindley girls basketball team and just their second league game of the season. It was a back and forth first half the Lady Nado and the Tigers. Fort Scott held the four point lead at the end of the first quarter. After a small run by the Nado they took the lead into halftime 23-22.

 

A strong start to the second half would see the Nado control most of the third quarter but after a run by Fort Scott and a steal and easy lay up to end the quarter Fort Scott had their first lead of the second half 34-33. The momentum to end the third was swung in the Tiger's favor and they hung on to it to pull away for a final of 46-35. Ella Beth finishes with 19 for Fort Scott.

The Nado would keep control in the second half only trailing once.
