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.
