Both the Coffeyville Men's and Women's basketball teams suffered close defeats on Wednesday night, with the men losing to Barton Community College 89-85 and the women losing by a score of 69-66.
Despite winning the second half, the men could not make up for a 41-29 halftime deficit. Kymani Dunham led all Red Ravens scorers with 18 points, with Tylor Perry (16), Meikkel Murray (16), Bostyn Holt (14) and Tony Hutson (14) also adding double-digit totals to the cause as well. Unfortunately for Coffeyville, the scoring was scarce outside of those five, with only 7 points coming from the rest of the starters and bench.
The women's game would be close all the way through, with the Red Ravens only trailing by 2 points at halftime. But after a tied third quarter, Barton would prove themselves able to hold onto their slim lead and came away with the aforementioned 3-point victory. Alana Kramer led all Lady Ravens in scoring with 13, but several players finished with 9 points, including Kailyn Lay, Julia Calafell, and Faith Simpson. The latter made her CCC debut, going 4-6 from the field and adding some height in the post.
Both the CCC men (9-4, 1-2) and women (11-2, 1-2) will be in action this Saturday, as the Red Ravens coming back home for a matchup with Pratt Community College. The women's game will tip off at 2 p.m, with the men's game following. The game can be heard on US 98.1, KUSN.
