The Coffeyville men's and women's basketball teams once again swept their doubleheader Tuesday night, with the women defeating Bethany JV 61-41 and the men defeating Eastern Oklahoma State 93-59.
The women's contest was most notable for output provided by the Coffeyville bench. Leading scorers McKenzie Murrel-Patton and Ania Markowska combined for just three points, but Julia Calafell and Kristi Stephens scored 15 and 10 respectively to keep the scoring going. The Red Ravens scored 46 of their 61 points from the bench, with Brooklyn Wade adding 9 and Alana Kramer adding 6 more. Coffeyville also held the Swedes to just 2/19 shooting from the field in the second half, giving up just 9 points total. The women improve to 7-0 this season and will next take the court Saturday as they host Eastern Oklahoma State.
Speaking of Eastern Oklahoma State, the Coffeyville men played a brilliant defensive game, holding a Moutaineers team that averaged 103 points per game coming into the contest to just 59. After the Mountaineers flexed their three-point shooting skills early, Coffeyville adjusted its defense and held EOSC to just 1/17 shooting from beyond the arc. Meikkel Murray led all scorers with 21, while Tylor Perry scored 20 points off of the bench. Other double digit scorers included Manny Crump with 12, Tony Hutson with 10 and Jalen Smith with 10. The men, now 5-1 this season, will head to Iowa this weekend for the Indian Hills CC Classic. They will play some tough opponents in Southeastern CC on Friday and Indian Hills CC on Saturday.
