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.
Next game for the Red Ravens is back at home this weekend against Butler. Butler is a top tier team in both women’s and men’s eastern standings, and will prove to be a test for both Red Raven squads.
