Coffeyville Takes Care of Business, Sweeps Allen County

 

Both Coffeyville teams cruised to victory Saturday, with the women defeating Allen County 61-38 and the men doing the same at 91-59.

 

The Coffeyville women came into Saturday holding a 3-game winning streak, and with Allen County entering the contest at 1-11, it seemed as if the Ravens would take home a victory as long as they didn't check out. That would prove to be true, as Coffeyville opened the game on a 19-3 run. Although Allen would find the mark quite often from outside the arc, the scoring just wouldn't come quick enough for the Red Devils to keep up with Coffeyville.

 

After the game, head coach Tony Turner addressed the depth of the his squad's bench. Simpson led all Coffeyville scorers with 16. Amiya Josey joined her in double digits with 10. The Red Raven women improve to 7-2 on the season and 6-2 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

The men's game, as we've come to expect from the Red Ravens this season, was very close for the first 20 minutes. The Red Devil men were hyped for the game, and played into Coffeyville's always-stout defense quite aggressively. Despite the extra aggression, the Red Raven defense would hold firm though, only allowing 33 first half points. Coffeyville led by 3 at the half, 36-33. However, things wouldn't stay close for long. Coffeyville would slowly dismantle the Allen County defense, making shots that they hadn't in the first half and playing with renewed vigor on defense. A long Coffeyville run was eventually capped by this Love Bettis three-pointer, which gave the Red Ravens a 21-point lead. The lead would continue to grow, with the game eventually coming to a close as Coffeyville picked up its biggest lead of the night at 31 points.

 

Head coach Jay Herkelman said he wasn't too worried about the slow start, as he knows teams will always be fired up to face a tough opponent. The #2-ranked Red Ravens now sit at 12-0, and 10-0 in conference play. Bettis led all Coffeyville scorers with 15, but was joined by four other players (Larry White, Kevaughn Ellis, Tylor Perry, and Bostyn Holt) in double digits.

 

The Red Ravens now await a much anticipated matchup with Cowley County on Saturday. The women will tip-off at 5 pm, with the men to follow.

Nado Boy's Season Comes to an End, Girls Advance

 

The Coffeyville boy's basketball season comes to an end as they fall to Independence 60-56. It was a back and forth game for the first half with multiple lead changes and ties, but the Bulldogs found themselves on top at halftime 29-27.

 

After a strong start to the second half Indy got up by as much as 11. Coffeyville was eventually able to cut it to 2 with 30 seconds left and a chance to tie or take the lead. Tariq Logan's three for Coffeyville was just short giving the Bulldogs the victory.

 

Indy was led by a 25 point performance by Easton Ewing. Three Nado scored in double digits led by 21 from Caden Herring, 15 from Logan and Freshman Za Logan had his first career double-digit performance with 12.

 

The Coffeyville girls beat Parsons 59-54 and will move on to face Labette County on Wednesday at 7:00pm. Adyson Peck and Kylie Speer had 20 each for the Lady Nado.

Isaac Brown Named Wichita State's Next Head Basketball Coach

 

Wichita State has promoted Isaac Brown from their interim coach to their head coach.

 

It didn't take long for the Shox to make the decision with them being currently in first place in the American Atheltic Conference with just one week left in the regular season.

 

Brown becomes the 26th head coach for the Shockers and agrees to a five-year deal. Wichita State is currently 9-2 in conference play and 13-4 overall. Brown received the interim position just eight days before the regular season, and the Shockers struggled on and off the court with COVID-19 spreading on the team early in the season. After their 1-2 start, they have won 12 of their last 14 games including a current five-game winning streak, and are currently a half-game up on Houston for the top spot in the conference.

 

Wichita State has a road game at Tulane on Wednesday and a road game at Temple next Saturday before their conference tournament on Thursday, March 11th in Fort Worth, TX.

 

 

Sedan Slips Past Caney Valley

 

In a game that saw huge runs for both teams, it came down to two free throws to give the Sedan Blue Devils a 55-53 win over the Caney Valley Bullpups.

 

The first quarter saw neither team put much separation between each other as the lead changed hands several times with the Bullpups leading 16-13 after the first eight minutes. Caney Valley, however, sprinted out of the gates to start the second by going on a 15-2 run over the first 6 minutes to build a 16-point lead capped off by a Jack Billingsley three-pointer.

 

The Bullpups lead 35-21 at the half but the 3rd quarter was all Sedan as they outscored Caney 18-5 to set up some 4th quarter drama. The Bullpups were leading by two late with the basketball when freshman guard Jeremiah Price delivered some late-game heroics.

 

With just seconds left in the game, the Bullpups DaRon Davis committed his 5th personal foul and sent Sedan to the free throw where Keaton Dickens sank two free throws to make the score 55-53. Kaehl Smith missed a half-court shot at the buzzer to arrange the final margin.

 

The post-season begins next week as Sedan will host Conway Springs on Monday while Caney Valley will travel Riverton on Tuesday. Both games are scheduled for 7 pm start times.

Nado Drop Both in Pittsburg


Coffeyville drops both on the road at Pittsburg. The Lady Nado fall 55-32 and the Coffeyville boys 89-33. It was the last game of the regular season with no ramifications on standings for either team. 

 

Adyson Peck had 18, Kylie Speer had 8 and Neveah Mason had 1 in their final regular season games as seniors. Tariq Logan had 12 points for the boys in his final regular season game. 

 

Both teams have play in game matchups this weekend as the Lady Nado head to Parsons Saturday to take on the Lady Vikings and the Nado boys travel to Independence to take the Bulldogs. Both games start at 2:00 with the boys on Sonshine 98.9.

Coffeyville Sweeps Cloud County in First Eastern Division Matchup

 

Another day, another two wins for Coffeyville. Both teams took care of business against Cloud County Wednesday night, with the women knocking off the Thunderbirds 66-56, with the men doing the same at 82-67.

 

The women's game saw leading scorer Faith Simpson return to the lineup after missing one game due to injury. She would look good in her first few minutes, dominating down low and forcing Cloud County's leading scorer, Le'Yanna McGinnis, to exit the game early with two personal fouls. However, Simpson would soon pick up two fouls of her own and have to sit out for much of the first half herself. The Red Ravens would lead by 1 at 30-29 heading into the half, but any notions of a back-and-forth ball game were tossed aside as Coffeyville outscored the Thunderbirds 24-13 in the third quarter. Cloud County would win the fourth quarter, but it was too little too late, as Coffeyville cruised to a 10-point victory.

 

Simpson led all scorers on the evening with 20. She was joined in double digits by Kailyn Lay, who scored a season-high 11. After the game, head coach Tony Turner expressed admiration for his team's defensive effort. Coffeyville's women improve to 6-2 on the season and 5-2 in Jayhawk Conference play. The team has extended its winning streak to three.

 

The men's game provided quite a bit more than fans bargained for early. Despite coming in on a two-game losing streak, Cloud County came in hot and used excellent three-point shooting to keep up with the Red Raven men, who couldn't seem to get up to their usual pace. Cloud County would actually lead for much of the first half and even headed into the locker rooms with a 35-33 advantage. Coffeyville, despite eventually turning things around, never seemed to find their stride from outside the arc, going 3-of-17 from three-point range. However, the Red Ravens would adjust their gameplan into going for easy buckets inside, a strategy that allowed them to lead by as much as 18 in the second half. Coffeyville would cruise the rest of the way, dispatching the very game Thunderbirds, 82-67.

 

After the game's conclusion, head coach Jay Herkelman addressed his team's early struggles. Love Bettis led the charge with 19 points, followed by Tylor Perry, who recorded 16 points of his own. Blaise Keita, who sat out 16 out of 20 minutes in the first half due to foul trouble, turned it around to finish with 13 on the night. The #2-ranked Red Raven men improve to 11-0 on the season and 9-0 in conference play.

 

Next up, a weekend matchup awaits Coffeyville as the teams visit Iola to take on Allen County Community College. It'll be an early noon tipoff, with pregame starting at 11:45 am on US98.1, KUSN.

Bullpups Sting Yellowjackets

 

The Caney Valley Bullpups got out to a quick 11-0 and never looked back as they beat the Fredonia Yellowjackets 62-35. The Bullpups were paced by junior guard Jack Billingsley with 18 points including this 1st quarter three-pointerThe Bullpups were also led by Jace Scott who had 11 points and Ridic Martin with 9 points.

 

The Yellowjackets struggled with scoring including a scoreless drought of nearly 6 minutes across the first two-quarters of play that was finally ended with a 6-0 run at the end of the period. John Milligan led the Yellowjacket attack including this shot from the corner in the 3rd quarterMilligan finished the game with 17 points while Brayden O'Neal chipped in five points.

 

The Bullpups moved to 10-7 and will have Wednesday off before finishing their regular season with their 5th game in seven days as they travel to Chautauqua County to square off against the Sedan Blue Devils. You will be able to listen to that game on Classic Hits 104.1 KGGF with Kyle Hey on the call.

Nado 0-2 at Labette

 

Coffeyville drops both on the road to Labette County as the Lady Nado fall 60-30 and the Nado boys 68-64. The Labette County girls opened the game on a 12-0 and never looked back holding a 33-14 lead at halftime. Junior Madison Brannin had 18 of her 21 points in the first half. Coach Anita Walker says they knew Labette was the team to beat this season.

 

In the boy's matchup, the Nado trailed by 5 at halftime 33-28, but Labette opened the second half strong and quickly grew their lead to double digits. Coffeyville changed their game up offensively focusing inside as Caden Herring had a career-high 30 points. The Nado would get to as close as 1 with under a minute left but just couldn't quite overcome the Grizzlies. Coach Tyler Thompson says he's proud of how the team handled the game tonight. The girls and the boys both back in action on Thursday in their final regular-season game at Pittsburg.

Hatten Passes 1,000 Points As Sedan Defeats Oxford

 

There was plenty to celebrate on Tuesday, as the Sedan Blue Devils picked up a 70-35 Senior Night victory over Oxford.

 

The game was relatively close for the first quarter, with Oxford finding quite a few easy baskets despite Sedan opting for a full-court press. Things would start to open up after that, though, as Sedan started to overwhelm the young Wildcats roster. A 16-point halftime lead would only continue to grow as the game progressed, with the running clock eventually taking effect midway through the fourth quarter. 

 

Dameion Hatten was the star of the evening, racking up 17 points total. The junior also passed 1,000 points for his career, meeting that mark with a shot early in the second quarter. Senior Eli Campbell also reached double digits on the night, picking up 10. 

 

Sedan improves to 13-4 on the regular season, while Oxford drops to 3-13. The Blue Devils continue to fight for first place in the Garden Plain sub-state and will take on Caney this Thursday. You can listen to that contest on 104.1, KGGF-FM.

CCC Advances to #2 In New NJCAA Poll

 

Coffeyville is continuing its ascent up the NJCAA rankings.

 

The men's basketball team now comes in at #2 in the latest Top 25 poll. The Red Ravens picked up two wins last week, a dominating 90-51 victory over Colby and a solid 65-58 victory over a then-ranked Dodge City squad. They're 10-0 on the season and 8-0 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

The previously ranked-second team, Pearl River Community College out of Mississippi, dropped a game to unranked-foe Southwest Mississippi, clearing the way for the Ravens to take over the slot. Coffeyville continues to sit behind South Plains, who remained undefeated last week to move to 8-0 on its season.

 

The team will be in action twice more this week. On Wednesday, Coffeyville will welcome an Eastern division foe for the first time in Cloud County. On Saturday, Coffeyville will travel to Iola to take on Allen County.

Indy Evens Series Against Nado

 

Tempers flared as Coffeyville drops another tough game, as Indy even the series at 1-1 with a 66-58 win.  A back and forth first half as both Indy and Coffeyville would trade the lead multiple times. Ethan Viets found his range early with a 12 point first-half point on 3 for 4 shooting from beyond the arc.

 

Indy would pull away by as many as 11 in the second half. Coffeyville cut it as close to five but just couldn't close the gap any further. Indy was lead by Sophomore Easton Ewing had 35 points. Tariq Logan had 29 for Coffeyville. Head Coach Tyler Thompson says as they prepare for Labette tomorrow they have to improve on what they did right tonight.

Indy's Big 2nd Quarter Beats the Lady Nado

 

The Lady Nado fall to Independence for the second time this season 58-38. The Coffeyville girls opened the game strong on back-to-back threes by Adyson Peck and would lead Indy 14-9 after the first quarter.

 

The Lady Bulldogs responded in the second quarter going on a 27-2 run to hold a 36-16 halftime lead. Coach Anita Walker says that has been a weakness of theirs this season.

 

Indy was lead by Abby Veile with 21 points. Three Lady Nado scored in double digits. Peck had 13, Neveah Mason had 11 and Kylie Speer had 10. Coffeyville back in action tomorrow night at Labette County.

CCC vs. Neosho Postponed

 

Tonight's scheduled matchup between the Coffeyville Red Ravens and the Neosho County Panthers has been postponed. Neosho's men have entered COVID protocols and will not be able to play. The women's game had already been postponed early last week.

 

However, the Ravens will still play two games this week. On Wednesday, both the men's and women's teams will take on Cloud County in Coffeyville. The two teams will then travel to Iola on Saturday for a matchup with Allen County. All games can be heard on US98.1, KUSN.

Long Trip Results in Two Wins for Coffeyville

 

Coffeyville continued its winning ways Saturday, with the women defeating Dodge City 62-58 and the men doing the same 65-58.

 

Without leading scorer Faith Simpson in the lineup due to injury, and fellow starter Dariauna Carter also out of Saturday's contest, the Red Raven women had plenty of questions to answer at the outset of the game. Devin Wright, getting her first start of the season, would answer many of those questions. Wright played aggressive underneath, and recorded several points early. However, Coffeyville would still find other buckets hard to come by, and trailed at the half, 34-28. They would never truly find themselves out of the game, though, and the second half would be just as close. The Ravens trailed by only 5 entering the fourth quarter. Over the course of the final 10 minutes, Coffeyville would claw its way back into striking distance, trailing 58-57 with 30 seconds remaining.

 

After an inbounds pass was stolen away by Coffeyville, the Ravens found themselves with one chance to put themselves back on top. With 15 seconds left to play, it would be Martina Aeschliman who came up with a huge three-pointer to give Coffeyville the lead. Dodge City would have a chance to win the game at 60-58, but a made three-pointer was waved off as the Conqs had too many players on the floor. A technical foul was issued, and Paige Scott sank a free throw to put Coffeyville up three. Aeschliman would add a free throw herself with just a few seconds ago to give the final score of 62-58. Wright led all Coffeyville scorers with 18. Makenzie Davis, who was also celebrating her birthday Saturday, recorded 14 for her season high. The women improve to 5-2 on the season, and improve to 4-2 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

With the women's game in the books, it was time for one of the most anticipated conference matchups of the night, with the third-ranked Coffeyville taking on the 22nd-ranked Dodge City. Despite a hot first couple of minutes from the Ravens, they would soon go absolutely cold for much of the first half, shooting less than 30 percent from the field and going just 2-of-17 from beyond the arc. This would be in spite of often-times good shot selection, as Coffeyville's usual scorers just could not seem to get it going. It wasn't all bad for the men, however, as the typically stout Coffeyville defense would keep them in the game at 29-26 heading into the break.

 

The scoring would pick up just a tad in the second half, with Coffeyville relaxing and continuing to make good decisions. Dodge City would build a lead as big as 9, but much like the women before them, the Ravens continued to stay close enough that a comeback was possible at any moment. Finally, the Ravens were rewarded. Tylor Perry, who had gone just 1-of-7 from deep in the first half, would soon find his stroke, including this three-pointer to beat the shot clock. Coffeyville ended the game on an 11-1 run, giving them the 7-point victory at 65-58. Perry led all scorers, finishing 5-12 from three-point land and recording 25 points. Bostyn Holt also reached double digits, scoring 12. The men have now reached 10-0 on the season, and 8-0 in conference play.

 

Next up, the men will travel solo to Chanute to meet the Neosho County Panthers on Monday. Tip-off will be at 5:30 pm, with pregame starting at 5:15 on US98.1, KUSN.

Nado Boys Drop Two Close Games

 

The Nado boys lose two tough matchups in their weekend doubleheader falling to Fort Scott 53-41 and Chanute 56-46.

 

The Nado would get the game within two points three times in the second half but could closeout. The Tigers were lead by three players scoring in double digits. Teagan Southwell had 17, Trey Brown with 14 and Gavin Pytlowany with 10. For Coffeyville Caden Herring had 21 of the teams 41.

 

In the last home game of the regular season the Nado led Chanute for most of the first three quarters but would come up short again. Chanute was lead by Kam Koester with 18. Tariq Logan had 22 for the Nado. With a win Monday against Independence Coffeyville will host their play-in game next Saturday.

Lady Nado 0-2 in Weekend Double Header

 

The Lady Nado fall in both of their games in this weekend double header. Friday night Coffeyville lost on the road at Fort Scott 48-34 and Saturday they fell in their final home game of the season to Chanute 61-19.

 

Ella Beth led the Lady Tigers with 12 points followed by 9 from Keegan Yarick, Harmony Shaw with 8 and McKenzie Murphy with 7. Coffeyville was lead by Adyson Peck with 13 followed by 9 from Kylie Speer and Makayla Strickland.

 

Chanute controlled the game against the FKHS girls from the start lead by a big night from Mattilyn Cranor with 33 points. The Lady Nado were lead 11 by Kylie Speer. The Lady Nado have a busy week ahead traveling to Independence, Labette County and Pittsburg.

Erie Outlasts Caney Valley

 

In a game that literally came down to the last shot, the #2 Erie Red Devils were able to outlast the Caney Valley Bullpups 50-48 in overtime Friday night.

 

Erie's game plan was obvious from the start as they were going to go inside early and often to Eric Dillinger to try and overpower the outsized Bullpups as Dillinger finished the game with 17 points.

 

The Bullpups were able to hang in the game by attacking the glass. Jace Scott ended up with 11 points in the game and none were bigger than a monster 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter.

 

The game would end up going into overtime and in the final seconds with Caney Valley trailing by two, Erie's Dawson Lehman missed a pair of free throws and Scott has a chance to send it into double overtime.

 

The next radio broadcast for the Bullpups will be Tuesday night against Fredonia. Kyle Hey will be on the call on Classic Hits 104.1 KGGF.

Leon-Bluestem Defeats Neodesha 57-40

Leon-Bluestem got a 57-40 win on the road at Neodesha thanks to great defense and a balanced scoring attack. 
 

Junior forward Kristofer Laidler led the way for the Lions with 14 points and was a force down low. His teammates did an excellent job finding him down low and he was able to finish on a majority of his opportunities.

 

Junior guard Jake Emmons had 11 points in the contest. On the defensive side, he played scrappy defense and irritated anyone he guarded by reaching in and cleanly getting steals. 
 

As for senior guard Logan Walden, he finished the night with ten points with two three-pointers in the first quarter.

 

The Bluestreaks were short-handed with injuries to key players and only had nine players suit up. Junior guard Maddux Johnson led the way with 11 points, all of which coming in the first half. 
 

Senior guard Seth Strange had ten points on the night with eight coming in the fourth quarter and Gage Bell had nine points. 
 

Neodesha finishes up their regular season campaign Thursday against Northeast Arma. 

Coffeyville Sweeps Colby Heading into Road Trip

 

Coffeyville defended its home court Thursday, with the women defeating Colby 49-47 and the men doing the same at 90-51.

 

The path wasn't necessarily easy for the Coffeyville women. The team had been in quarantine and hadn't been able to necessarily practice in the days leading up to the game. The team was also without key pieces Dariauna Carter and Amiya Josey for Thursday's matchup. Regardless, the Red Ravens fought hard, forcing several turnovers early on that helped the team build a 12-8 after one quarter. Although that lead would eventually be lost on a 7-0 run by the Trojans, Coffeyville would claw back to take a 6-point lead at 24-18 before the half. The low-scoring nature of the contest carried into the second half, with both teams trading baskets. The game would come down to the final few possessions. With Coffeyville leading by one, they found the stop they needed.

 

After the game, head coach Tony Turner spoke about the team's recent injury troubles. Faith Simpson finished with a double-double at 15 points and 10 rebounds. Paige Scott, in her first start for Coffeyville, also got into double digits with 10. The women improve to 4-2 and 3-2 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

The men found their road to victory to be much easier. The third-ranked Red Ravens could not be accused of looking forward to Saturday's marquee matchup with Dodge City. The team jumped out to an early double-digit lead, capped off by this Hayden Brittingham slam. Coffeyville took a 14-point lead into the locker room, and really never looked back. The lead just continued to increase, led by yet another balanced scoring effort. Eleven different Ravens found their way into the scoring books, including Brittingham, who led all Coffeyville scorers with 14. Kevaughn Ellis and Jalen Smith also found their stride, picking up 12 each. Tylor Perry added another 11-point game to further assist the effort. The Ravens eventually cruised to the 39-point victory, 90-51, to improve to 9-0 on the season and 7-0 in the conference.

 

With Colby in the past, both teams now look toward a long road trip to Dodge City. The women will tip off at 1 pm, with the men to follow. You can follow all the action on US98.1, KUSN.

CCC vs Colby Postponed to Thursday

 

Coffeyville's showdown with Colby Community College will have to wait a little longer.

 

Due to inclement weather in the area, as well as the possibility of rolling blackouts, Wednesday's Red Raven basketball games are being moved to Thursday, February 18th. The games will still start at 5:30 pm and 7:30 pm, and can still be heard on US98.1, KUSN.

 

In addition, CCC's volleyball contest against Cowley, originally scheduled for tonight, has been postponed to a date not yet announced. The team will be back in action on Thursday against Johnson County and Independence.

Coffeyville Enters Top 3 In Latest NJCAA Poll

Red Ravens Stay Perfect Despite Sloppy Performance

 

The Coffeyville Red Raven's men team stayed perfect after an 83-61 win over NW Tech Saturday afternoon. Although they got what can be considered a blowout win, it was sloppy for the majority of the contest.

 

It wasn't until about six minutes left in the second half until they started to pull away. Coming into the contest, NW Tech had been averaging 22.3 turnovers per game which were the most in the conference. The Red Ravens began taking advantage and got some breakaway layups towards the end of the contest to help seal the win.

 

Five players reached double-digit scoring for Coffeyville with Freshman Blaise Keita leading the way with 17 with eight rebounds. Hayden Brittingham had 12 points, Bostyn Holt had 11, Markeith Browning also had 11 and Larry White had ten.

 

The Red Ravens improved to 6-0 in conference play and 8-0 on the regular season as they host Colby on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

Caney Valley - Cherryvale Game for Monday Postponed

The Caney Valley - Cherryvale boys basketball game that was originally scheduled for Monday on Classic Hits 104.1 KGGF has been postponed due to the winter storm that has caused poor road conditions in the area. We will provide an update if a make-up date is announced.

 

The next game for Caney Valley is scheduled for Tuesday against Dewey. The next on-air broadcast for Caney Valley boys basketball is set for this Friday against Erie.  Game time is set for approximately 7:30pm.  Kyle Hey will be on the call.

Nado Drop Both to Parsons

 

Field Kindley falls in both of their matchups against Parsons as the Lady Nado lose 56-37 and the boys 61-54. Both teams were shorthanded tonight. The Coffeyville girls were without Kyleigh Flores and Neveah Mason and the boys without Tariq Logan.

 

The Parsons girls came out strong in the first half to hold a 30-14 halftime lead and never looked back from there. The Lady Vikings were led by Freshman Sydney Schibi with 14 points and Sophmore Jadyn Heck with 13. The Lady Nado got 18 from Kylie Speer and 12 from Makayla Strickland but only four Lady Nado in total got on the board.

 

The Coffeyville boys despite a career-high from Caden Herring with 22 points just couldn't quite overcome the Vikings who were led by Julius Smith-Reece with 13 and 6 other Vikings who scored 5 or more points.

Blue Devils Burn Central Burden

 

After a sluggish first half, the Sedan Blue Devils offense exploded for 44-second half points to turn a tie ballgame at the half into a blowout as Blue Devils ran away from Central Burden by a score of 66-42. The Raiders controlled most of the first half with freshman guard Jace Wunderlich scoring 21 points to lead all scorers including this late 2nd quarter three-point shot.

 

The Sedan offense would finally erupt in the second half with Keaton Dickens scoring 16 points, Eli Campbell with 11 points, and Dameion Hatton with 20 points, including a 3-point play that put the Blue Devils up by 10 from which they never looked back.

 

Sedan moves to 9-3 on the season and sits just half a game back of Belle Plaine for 2nd place in the Garden Plain sub-state standings. Sedan returns to action Friday night hosting the red hot Erie Red Devils who boast a 13-1 record.

Perry, Bettis Shine In Win Over Barton

 

Coffeyville extended its season-opening winning streak to 7 games Wednesday, taking down Barton Community College 81-64. 

 

Despite taking an early 11-2 lead, the two teams would largely trade blows for most of the first half. The Cougars would quickly close the gap, and the teams would eventually find themselves tied at 24. This would prove to be Barton’s last chance at holding a lead, as Coffeyville flipped the switch and pulled a 12-0 run just before the half. 

 

Heading into the locker rooms with a 12-point lead, Coffeyville largely carried the momentum of its run into the second half. Early buckets from Blaise Keita kept the Cougars at arms length. Tylor Perry would also have yet another outstanding three-point shooting performance, going 3-4 from beyond the arc to further improve upon his prior 70 percent shooting percentage. Barton would get as close as 8, but the Ravens would once again pull away to cruise to the 17-point victory.

 

Perry led all Ravens scorers with 16. Love Bettis also recorded a season-high 15 points in the contest.

 

The Coffeyville men will once again be in action this Saturday, but will also return to Nellis Hall to welcome the Northwest Kansas Tech Mavericks. That game can either be heard on US98.1, KUSN, or can be viewed online at the US98 YouTube channel.

Caney Sweeps Coffeyville

 

The Caney Valley Bullpups get their revenge against Field Kindley with a doubleheader sweep. The Lady Bullpups beat the Lady Nado 40-35 and the Caney boys beat the Coffeyville boys 78-66.

 

It was a back and forth game as there would be multiple lead changes in the girl's matchup, but Coffeyville would hold the two point 20-18 halftime lead. The second half was a bit of a different story as Caney outscored the Lady Nado 22-15 and secured the victory. Maggie McVey led Caney with 7 points and Adyson Peck led Coffeyville with 10.

 

The boy's matchup saw quarter by quarter swings as Coffeyville led 19-13 after the first but was outscored 21-7 in the second. Tariq Logan would start the third quarter hot scoring 9 quick points from beyond on the arc. Halfway through the fourth Caney would put the game away after back-to-back technical fouls would see Logan tossed from the game and extended the Caney lead to 13. Daron Davis led the Bullpups with 28 points and Logan led the Nado with 23. Coffeyville will face Parsons at home on Friday.

Meanwhile, Barton has started its season at a 2-2 mark, with a win over Allen but losses to Independence and Cowley. The Cougars won last year's regular season matchup between the two teams, 89-85. However, Coffeyville would get its win back during the Region VI Quarterfinals with a final score of 92-79.

Big Nights for Keita, Perry Help Lead CCC Over Seward

 

Coffeyville split its two games against Seward County Community College on Saturday, dropping the women's contest 63-54 but taking the men's contest 71-62.

 

At first, it seemed as if the Red Raven women would be in for a dogfight against the Saints, going blow for blow all through the first quarter. However, the second quarter would not be kind to Coffeyville, as Seward outscored the Ravens 24-7 to take a 17-point halftime lead. Out of the locker rooms, the Saints would extend that lead to as much as 22, but Coffeyville would start to fight back. Martina Aeschliman would hit a couple of 3s, and Faith Simpson would find more opportunities in the post. The lead eventually shrunk to single-digits, and Coffeyville got back to within 4 on this Faith Simpson and-1.

 

Unfortunately, the comeback would stop there, as Seward County recovered enough to pull back out once again. Coffeyville eventually fell, 63-54. The Red Raven women fall to 3-2 on the season and 2-2 in Jayhawk Conference play.

 

Afterwards, the Coffeyville men took to the floor, and although Seward would take a 10-2 lead in the early stages of the game, it looked as if the Red Ravens had the key to a blowout victory. Heading into the locker rooms with a 32-25 lead, Coffeyville would finally break into double-digits for the first time on a Tylor Perry 3-pointer. The fun would stop there. Seward County ripped off a 19-2 run to not only take the lead, but get back in front by 7. Trailing 49-39, Coffeyville would start to chip away once again at the lead, and eventually got back in front with this Perry fadeaway. Perry wouldn't be done though. He'd add the dagger with this four-point play. Some free-throws would further seal the deal, and Coffeyville picked up the 71-62 victory.

 

Coffeyville's men improve to 6-0 and remain undefeated in Jayhawk Conference play at 4-0. Next up, both the men and women will travel to Great Bend to take on Barton County on Wednesday. That matchup can be heard on US98.1, KUSN.

Cherryvale Wins Homecoming Game vs. Fredonia

 

Cherryvale was able to handle Fredonia with no problem as they won with a final score of 63-21.

 

Briggs Adkison led the way with 13 points for the Chargers with six points in the early portion of the first quarter. Landon Bennett, Devin Sawyer and Stetson Schafter all got 10 points apiece. Chargers Head Coach Rodney Vigil said after the game that he is happy that his team is spreading the ball around so well.

 

As for the Chargers' post players Kolbyn Hooper and Rayden Wright, Coach Vigil had nothing but praise for their performances.

 

Defensively, Cherryvale did a phenomenal job of aggressively guarding the ball and getting hands in the passing lanes. This ball pressure allowed the Chargers to create turnovers and plenty of fast-break opportunities.

 

Fredonia falls to 4-9 on the regular season and play at Leon-Bluestem next Tuesday. As for Cherryvale, they improved to 10-3 and have their final home game against Caney Valley Tuesday.

Defense Helps CCC to Wins Over Garden City

 

Late-game heroics, plus some stoic defense, helped both the Coffeyville men's and women's basketball teams to victories over Garden City Wednesday evening.

 

The women were up first, and it was clear that both teams would have their work cut out for them offensively. Coffeyville held the Broncbusters to just 6 points in the first quarter, and although things would pick up slightly in the second quarter, it would be just a 24-23 Garden City lead at the half. Things didn't look good for the Red Ravens out of the locker rooms-- Garden City found plenty of success in the post en route to building an 8-point lead for the final quarter of play. However, it would be Coffeyville who got the last laugh. With 5.5 seconds left to play, and the Red Ravens trailing by 1 at 48-47, Paige Scott picked a big moment to get her first points of the game.

 

A final effort for Garden City would fall short, and the Coffeyville women would take the 50-48 victory. Faith Simpson led all Ravens scorers with 11, all of which came in the second half.

 

The Coffeyville men, much like the women, came out strong and early against the Broncbusters. Although the team couldn't seem to eclipse a 9-point lead early in the first half, the Ravens excelled at keeping Garden City at arm's length. The team would finally acquire its first double-digit lead late in the first half, and would make it 12 at the break. Coming into the second half, it seemed that Coffeyville would begin to pull away as they often do. The lead would grow to as large as 17 as the Ravens continued to force the Broncbusters into mistakes. However, Garden City would catch fire from beyond the arc, scoring their first 15 points of the half from beyond the three-point line. Coffeyville would see its lead shrink down to as small as 1, but a Perry 3-pointer and some big stops on the defensive side of the ball finally pushed the momentum back into the team's favor. The men went on to win by 8, 72-64.

 

Coffeyville forced Garden City to commit 23 turnovers, which translated into a whopping 31 points for the Red Ravens. Perry led the Ravens with 16 points, and much like Simpson in the preceding contest, all of those points came in the second half. Larry White also added 15 points to the scoring effort.

 

Coffeyville's men improve to 5-0 on the season and remain unbeaten in Jayhawk Conference play. The women improved their record to 3-1 and 2-1 in the conference. Both teams will be in action

Nado Fall Just Short to Ottawa

 

The Nado boys despite trailing by as many as 15 points in the second half fought all the way back to make it a one-possession game, but fell just short losing 58-53.

 

Coffeyville opened up the game strong offensively and lead for most of the first half before Ottawa would go on a run a hold a 28-20 lead at halftime. Coffeyville went on a run of their own capped off by a Tariq Logan three that cut the lead down to two.

 

Ottawa would lead by 3 with just over two minutes left in the game and would stall almost and minute and a half before the Nado were finally forced to foul pulling the game just out of reach. Noah McCullough led Ottawa with 15. Logan had 27 points followed by Caden Herring with 13 points. Coffeyville has the rest of the week off and will be back in action next Tuesday at Independence.

Lady Nado Blown Away by Lady Cyclones

 

The Lady Nado struggle offensively as they fall in night two of the back to back against Ottawa 58-28. Coffeyville did get out to a lead in the first quarter 6-4 on back to back threes by Kylie Speer, but then the Lady Cyclones would go on a 17-0 run to end the first quarter up and never looked back.

 

It was the full-court press by Ottawa that forced the Lady Nado to go cold offensively and commit multiple turnovers. Head Coach Anita Walker says she's confident they have the ability to break the press.

 

Ottawa had three players in double digits, Summer Spigle lead the way with 16, Brooklyn Hadl had 15 off the bench and Sofia Ficken had 10. Kylie Speer lead the Lady Nado with 11. Field Kindley has the rest of the week off and will be back in action next Tuesday at Independence.

Sedan Drops Close Contest to Cedar Vale-Dexter

 

A late run just wasn't enough as the Sedan Blue Devils dropped Tuesday's Game of the Week, 44-42, to the Cedar Vale-Dexter Spartans.

 

Despite Sedan jumping out to a quick 11-4 lead, the Blue Devils would go cold from just about everywhere on the floor. The Spartans were able to catch up slowly, but surely, and eventually eclipsed Sedan to take a 22-19 lead into the half.

 

Both teams would have a hard time getting things going in the third quarter, but soon, the Spartans' Cole Criss caught fire from beyond the arc, hitting three consecutive threes to help Cedar Vale-Dexter pull away. The Blue Devils would trail by as much as 10 at 39-29, but the team would show some fire in the closing minutes. They'd pull back to within 2 at 44-42, but a last second three by Kaden Walker would fall just short. Dameion Hatten would lead all Sedan scorers with 16, while Criss led the Spartans with 15.

 

Sedan drops to 8-3 on the season and suffers its first loss to a team other than the West Elk Patriots. Stay tuned for our next Game of the Week next week, either on 690AM, KGGF, or US98.1, KUSN.

Sedan Back in Action Against Cedar Vale Tonight

 

Fresh off of a win against Argonia on Friday, the Sedan Blue Devils will get back on the court Tuesday to face the Cedar Vale Broncos.

Tonight's Blue Devils-Broncos matchup can be heard on 690AM, KGGF. JV will start at 5 pm and play two quarters, with the varsity boys following after that.

Nado Light it Up Offensively in Win Over Caney

 

Coffeyville has three players score in double digits as a big offensive night helps seal a win over Caney 82-70. It was a back and forth first quarter with six lead changes and two ties but the Nado would come out on top after one 24-21 lead by 15 points from Tariq Logan including a buzzer beater three to end the quarter.

 

Logan would cool off after the first, finishing with 26, but teammates Ethan Viets and Caden Herring would pick up the scoring with 21 and 19 points respectively. Coach Tyler Thompson says he likes what the team did offensively taking smart shots and not forcing anything. Nado back in action tomorrow taking on Ottawa.

Lady Nado take Game One in Matchup Against Caney

 

The Lady Nado pick up a win on their first night of a back to back beating Caney Valley 59-49. A strong first half for Coffeyville would see them up 31-14, which at 17 points was their largest lead of the game.

 

A third-quarter run by the Lady Bulldogs would cut the lead down to 3, but it was too little too late as Field Kindley would hold on to the lead extending it back to double digits. The Lady Nado were lead by a balanced scoring attack.

 

Kylie Speer lead the team with 13 points, Kyleigh Flores added 11, Freshman Teagan Titus had 10 and Adyson Peck was two steals away from a triple-double with 11 points, 14 rebounds and 8 steals. Peck says she didn't realize how close she was to a triple-double until after the game. The Lady Nado are back in action tomorrow taking on Ottawa at 6:00pm.
