Ravens Drop Doubleheader to NEO


It was a tough final night of non-conference play for the Red Ravens, dropping a doubleheader against NEO in Miami.


The Lady Ravens struggled mightily in the first half, trailing by double digits most of the game, including being down 27 late in the third quarter. CCC would end the game on a 44-20 run, nearly pulling off an improbable comeback, but falling just short in a 69-66 defeat.


Head coach Tony Turner says he's proud of the team's fight in the second half.


Both Karys Washington and Natayla Jones played great minutes for Turner, while Kyleigh Ortiz and Bailey Layman had crucial scores late. The Lady Ravens are 5-1 entering conference play.


Turner says although they are considered conference contenders, they need to improve their physicality to be a great team.


The men didn't fare much better, falling to NEO for the second consecutive game, in a 77-59 loss. It was a sloppy display for a young team in their first road game, with missed free throws, turnovers, and foul trouble looming large. Both Izek Jackson and CJ Smith fouled out in the second half.


Cris Carroll had 10 points for the Ravens, while Jahni Summers and Boubacar Keita were both strong in the second half.
