Not to be over shadowed by the big record-breaking win for head coach of the men’s basketball team Jay Herkelman, the Lady Red Ravens played an incredible game, putting forth their best four quarters at home all year.
Hosting the Lady Red Devils from Allen County in the first part of the double header, as they came into the game with a very similar 3-16 record and one place behind Coffeyville in the Eastern Jayhawk Conference standings at 1-7. An even ball game through the first half was led the way by sophomore Tatiana McCree who had 11 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists through 2 quarters as Coffeyville had Allen by 7 at the half 36 to 29. Coffeyville, who has been known to struggle in the 3rd quarter, came out of the locker room with energy and put a big spot on Allen County scoring 29 points in the third and keeping the Lady Red Devils to only 10. With a sizable lead heading into the final quarter, A.C.C. came out strong and gave their best effort, but great shooting, and solid clock management by the ladies and head coach Harrel was to much for the come back as Coffeyville cruises to victory 89 to 63 riding off of that huge 3rd quarter. McCree led the way in scoring with 19 points, though 2 other Lady Red Ravens found double digits, as Jayleen Cole scores six 3’s for 18 points and Riana Brown had 14. Red Ravens shoot over 50% from the floor and from 3-point land in the impressive win.
