Nado Drop Both in Final Games Before Midseason Tournaments

 

Field Kindley basketball drops both on the road in Altamont as the girls fall 53-21 and the boys 72-53.

 

In the girl's game, offensive woes continue to plague the Lady Nado. They didn't make a bucket from the floor and only scored 2 points on two Chanute Porter free throws in the first quarter. Turnovers led to easy buckets on the other end of the floor as Labette County jumped out to a 13-2 lead after the first. Olivia Ransom broke the Lady Nado cold streak with a three in the second and Taylor Caron added two free throws, but the Grizzlies picked up the pace as well and would lead 28-7 at the half. The third quarter was the closest as LCHS outscored Coffeyville 10-9, but in the fourth, the Grizzlies would pull away once again. Coffeyville was able to hold the Grizzlies' leading scorer, Maddison Brannin, to 14 points. Caron had 7 for the Nado.

 

In the boy's matchup, the three-ball was the story of the game as the Grizzlies came out firing from beyond the arc and never stopped. As a team, Labette made six threes in the first half and the Nado couldn't keep pace trailing 40-25 at the half. It was the same story in the second half but it was all coming from one player as Eli Hestand finished with 29 points on 8 three-pointers, 6 of which were in the second half. On the Nado side of the ball in the second half, Ethan Viets tried to keep pace with Hestand, finishing with 27 points on 7 made three-pointers, five of which were in the second half. Three other Grizzlies finished with double digits. Zavier Phillips with 16, Alex Meister with 14 and Griffin Eaton with 10. LCHS hit a combined 14 three as a team. Caden Herring finished behind Viets in scoring for the Nado with 9.
