Men Win, Women Lose Against Neosho County

 

Coffeyville's women had a rare off night Saturday against Neosho County, losing 89-59 while the men found themselves picking up their fourth consecutive victory 80-69.

 

With a six game winning streak, the Coffeyville women seemed primed to pick up victory number seven against a Lady Panthers team that had up to that point gone 1-10 in the Jayhawk Conference. However, the Lady Ravens couldn't seem to buy a basket, while Neosho County shot the lights out of the building. The Lady Panthers sank 20 three-pointers over the course of the game, including 8 triples from Jessica Jones. Coffeyville trailed by only seven points at the half, but seemed to run out of energy at the end of the game, being outscored 35-9 in a total collapse. Head coach Tony Turner attributed the struggles to a poor shootaround, but was optimistic about his team's ability to rebound and recover for next week. Faith Simpson and Alana Kramer each led the team with 15 points a piece.

 

Compared to the women's game, the men's contest was a fairly subdued affair, with the Red Raven men taking the lead early and never really taking the foot off the gas. Efficient shot selection and a barrage of three-pointers from Tony Hutson helped keep Coffeyville's lead at a safe distance from the Panthers. Hutson and Manny Crump were the leading scorers for Coffeyville, picking up 21 points each. 

 

Following Saturday's games, the women fall to 19-4 on the season and 9-4 in the Jayhawk Conference. The men improve to 17-6 on the year and 9-4 in the conference. Both Coffeyville teams will take Wednesday off before getting back to action next Saturday against Butler Community College.
