Coffeyville Women Defeat Colby in Triple Overtime


The Coffeyville women's basketball team needed four quarters and three overtime periods, but still got the 82-78 win against Colby on Saturday.


The Ravens, as they have done a few times this season, fell behind early on. After being outscored 18-15 in the the first quarter, Coffeyville only put up 4 points in the second quarter, failing to make a single basket in the process despite solid shot selection. Trailing 32-19 at the half, another comeback was needed. It started out modest, with Coffeyville pulling back to within single-digits and trimming the Trojan lead to just 6 entering the final quarter, and finally tying things back up at 60 with just a minute to go. Neither team was able to convert its final attempt at ending things in regulation, sending Coffeyville to its second overtime game in a row.


The first two overtime periods came and went, with neither side able to get an advantage. However, foul trouble started to dog some of Colby's key players, while Coffeyville was able to mostly keep theirs spread out. With free throws again becoming more and more important, it was the Ravens who were finally able to pull away in the third overtime period. Nakia Cullom scored 8 of her 14 points in the decisive period, while Faith Simpson added several points from the free throw line. A Colby triple to trim the lead to 4 would make things interesting, but the Ravens ran out the rest of the clock for the 82-78 victory.


Simpson led the way in scoring, picking up 22 points and 13 rebounds for the double-double. Scott recorded a season high 21 points. The Raven women are now 9-1 on the season and 3-1 in conference play. A tough matchup awaits both the Raven men and women Wednesday, as they'll travel to El Dorado to take on the Butler Grizzlies. Pregame starts at 5 PM, with tip-off at 5:30 PM on US98.1, KUSN.

Ravens Split at Home Against Dodge City


It was a mixed bag in Coffeyville's return to Nellis Hall on Wednesday, as the women claimed a 60-58 overtime victory over Dodge City while the men dropped a 76-53 contest.


The Coffeyville women were fresh off of a 12-point loss to Garden City, but seemed to shake that off quickly. Despite a slow offensive start, the defense kept the game under wraps. Eventually, Coffeyville's shots started falling, and a 21-8 second quarter would give the Ravens a 27-16 halftime lead.


Unfortunately, it wouldn't be a runaway victory. Dodge City came out of the break with a 21-10 third quarter of their own, tying things back up for the final quarter. After going even in the fourth thanks to a couple of last minute Amiya Josey free throws, it would be overtime once again for a Red Ravens squad, tied up at 49.


Later in overtime, tied at 58, and with a chance for the final shot in overtime, Coffeyville's Faith Simpson was fouled to get to the line with just 3.4 seconds remaining. Both shots fell, and a last-gasp Dodge City heave wouldn't come close, giving the Ravens their eighth win of the season.


Simpson led all scorers with 17 points and 9 rebounds. Amiya Josey finished with 10 points and 7 rebounds. The Red Raven women shot 88% from the free throw line, while Dodge City shot just 47%. The team is now 8-1 on the season and 2-1 in Jayhawk Conference play.




The men also faced a tough Dodge City team, and were doing it down several men. Sickness kept starters Dayshawn Wiley and Oluwatimisola ToluOgunokya out of Wednesday's games, and would-be starters Blaise Keita and AJ McBride are still out due to injury.


Things started slowly, with both teams unable to create open shots. However, Dodge City got things going for themselves, utilizing its bigger, more athletic players and forcing Coffeyville to guard inside. With just one player over 6'8" available for Wednesday's game, it was a tall task, and Coffeyville slowly fell behind.


Dodge City built a 13-point lead heading into the locker rooms, and while Coffeyville would fight for quite awhile into the second half, even cutting the lead back down to 9, the disadvantages were just too much, and the much healther team would eventually pull away and claim the 23-point win.


Coffeyville has lost three straight at home, and are now 5-4 on the season. They are 2-1 in Jayhawk Conference play.




The Raven women will be alone for our next broadcast, as they play host to the Colby Trojans this Saturday. The Colby men have postponed both of their games this week due to health and safety protocols. Pregame will start at 1:30PM, with tip-off at 2 PM on US98.1, KUSN.

Coffeyville Basketball Splits at Garden City


It was split fortunes in Garden City, as the Coffeyville women suffered their first loss of the season 58-46 while the men won 106-104 in double overtime.


The Coffeyville women saw a solid defensive effort spoiled by massive struggles on offense. Shooting just 31 percent from the floor and committing 22 turnovers, the Ravens found themselves unable to executive their usual gameplan for much of the afternoon. Meanwhile, Garden City's Kealani Neves came quickly out of the gate, shooting lights out from 3-point range and creating a lead early on. Although Coffeyville wouldn't let the game get too far out of hand, the Broncbusters slowly expanded their advantage to 15 points before eventually settling for a 27-17 lead at the half.


Things wouldn't get much better in the third quarter. Garden City chewed up the clock and Coffeyville continued to play into the hands of the Broncbuster defense. Despite figuring things out for a solid fourth quarter in which the Ravens would outscore Garden City 19-13, the Ravens would still fall 58-46.


Coffeyville's Faith Simpson led all scorers with 18 points. The Red Raven women are 7-1 on the season and 1-1 in the Jayhawk Conference.




The men's game featured two teams looking to continue their success despite recent setbecks. Garden City was without its leading scorer due to suspension, while Coffeyville has been plagued by injuries. The teams were virtually even throughout regulation, although the Ravens were the quicker team out of the gate. Taking a 26-16 lead, Coffeyville would see that lead shrink to just two points by halftime, 45-43.


Things got interesting in the second half. Garden City at one point pulled ahead by 13 at 70-57, but a 17-4 run for Coffeyville tied things right back up. The lead never grew to more than a few points after that, but both teams being in the double bonus meant both teams had plenty of chances to add points at the free throw line. With neither team willing to miss from the line, Coffeyville went up 82-79 with under a minute to play in regulation. However, it was not a lead meant to hold as a Garden City 3-pointer sent the Ravens into their second overtime game in a row.


Free throws continued to be important in the extra periods, as the officials showed no signs of laying off the whistle. In total, 28 fouls were called in Saturday's game, leading to 72 shots taken from the charity stripe. The first overtime period game and went, with Garden City missing an opportunity to seal the game after a missed last-second shot. In the second overtime period, it was Coffeyville who ultimately got to the line last, as Dayshawn Wiley sank both to give the Ravens its 106-104 lead. A last-gasp, half-court shot for Garden City fell just short, and the Ravens emerged victorious for their second straight victory.


Wiley put up a season-high 30 points, leading all scorers. Love Bettis scored 20, while Deng Mayar and Jules Bikoy added 17 and 15 respectively. The Ravens are now 6-3 and 2-0 in the Jayhawk Conference.


Both teams will return home on Wednesday, playing host to the Dodge City Conquistadors. You can catch both games on US98.1, KUSN.

Coffeyville Basketball Sweeps Cowley On the Road


Coffeyville opened up Jayhawk Conference play in the best possible way Wednesday, the women earning a 69-62 victory over Cowley and the men following suit at 80-76.


The Red Raven women got off to a slow start, letting the Tigers pull out to an early 13-2 lead. Missed opportunities further allowed Cowley to hold onto its lead, but Coffeyville stayed within striking distance for the majority of the first half. Bouncing between low double-digits and just a few points, the Ravens took advantage of early Cowley foul trouble to pull itself close again and again. Coffeyville trailed at the half by 3 points, 32-29.


In the second half, the lead would never grow again to lengths seen in the first two quarters. Continuing upon its approach in the first half, Coffeyville kept looking inside, allowing players such as Faith Simpson and Nakia Cullom to take high-percentage shots and further make up for an off-night from outisde the arc. After getting back to within 1 by the end of the third quarter, the Ravens dominated the fourth quarter 21-13 to take the 7-point win back home.


Simpson led the Ravens with 19 points, while Cullom provided 18 off of the bench on 8-of-12 shooting. The Raven women have extended their winning streak to 7-0 and start out conference play at 1-0.




The Red Raven men, much like the women before them, fell behind early on. The Tigers used a full court press to frustrate Coffeyville, and shot well from outside to create a large deficit. After falling behind 14-4, Coffeyville began its long climb back into the ballgame, chipping away with mid-range jumpers and second chance efforts. The team eventually earned its first lead at 25-24 following a deep Dayshawn Wiley three-pointer. By halftime, the Ravens had built their slim lead to 2 points at 35-33.


The two teams continued to trade the lead early in the second half, but Coffeyville eventually built a double-digit lead of its own at 57-47. Holding that lead proved to be difficult, however, and things evened out once again in the final few minutes. Leading 67-65 with 16 seconds to play, Deng Mayar had a chance to put the game out of reach with two free throws. However, he would sink only one of the two, allowing Cowley's Raishaun Brown to hit wild 3-pointer from the corner to force overtime.


Despite the setback, and the blown lead, Coffeyville proved themselves to have the tougher mental in the extra few minutes. A small lead once again emerged, allowing for slower play that chewed up time off the clock. Cowley would have chances to bring the game back to within one possession in overtime, but missed free throws en masse allowed the Ravens to eventually come away with the 4-point win.


Love Bettis led all scorers with 22, while Mayar and Noah Butler turned in efforts of 15 and 14 points respectively. The men are now 4-3 on the season and 1-0 in conference play.


Both teams will again be on the road Saturday, traveling to western Kansas to face Garden City. Both games can be heard on US98.1, KUSN. Pregame will start at 1:30 PM for a 2:00 PM tipoff.

Coffeyville Women Enter Top 25, Men Receive Votes in Latest Poll


A hot start has pushed the Coffeyville Red Raven women's basketball team into the NJCAA Top 25.


Coffeyville came in at #25 in the latest NJCAA poll, published Monday. The Ravens defeated Bethany JV and Connors State last week, both by double-digits. The 6-0 start also saw Coffeyville earn a win over then-ranked Eastern Oklahoma.


Meanwhile, the Coffeyville men fell out of the rankings after a 3-game losing skid, but are still receiving votes. Two of the Ravens' three losses have come NEO A&M, a ranked opponent. Southern Arkansas University Tech, the only other opponent to have bested the men this season, also defeated Independence last weekend.


Conference play starts this week, as the Ravens travel to Cowley on Wednesday and then Garden City on Saturday. All of this week's games can be heard on US98.1, KUSN.

Sedan Falls to Canton-Galva in State Sectionals


A great year for the Sedan Blue Devils football team has sadly come to an end after a 52-6 loss to Canton-Galva in the state sectionals.


The Blue Devils had no answer for the Eagles' offense, led by senior receiver and Kansas State commit Tyson Struber. The 2019 state champions only saw two of its drives end in a result other than a touchdown.


Meanwhile, the high-scoring Sedan offense that most teams in the area have come to know couldn't get themselves off the ground. The Blue Devils did pick up one touchdown, a 25-yard Brec Long run in the second quarter that briefly brought the score back to 16. However, it was all the team could muster, as the game was eventually decided in the third via mercy rule.


Sedan finishes its season at 10-1. Canton-Galva moves onto the semi-finals, where they will face defending state champion and district rival Little River. With the Blue Devils' loss, that will conclude our Game of the Week coverage for the football season. Up next is basketball season, starting next month. Stay tuned for further updates and broadcast schedules.

CCC Men Fall to SAU Tech


Despite the great second-half effort, the Red Ravens men fall short losing to Southern Arkansas University Tech 78-74. The Rockets opened the game on a 17-0 run as CCC looked lost both on offense and defense. SAU Tech used a 40% three-point shooting effort to maintain that lead heading into half 45-30. The Rockets Allen Taylor led the way with 15 first-half points.


Some great shooting in the second half by Dayshawn Wiley helped cut the lead all the way down to two points at one point, but CCC just couldn't finish the comeback. Wiley finished with 22 points on 7/11 shooting from beyond the arc. Love Bettis would add 19 points for CCC but struggled shooting going 7/19 from the floor and 6/12 from beyond the arc. The Red Ravens head into Region 6 play 3-3. They'll be on the road taking a familiar foe in a Championship rematch in Cowley.

Red Ravens Head into Conference Play 6-0


The Red Ravens women controlled the game from the opening tip as they never trailed winning 72-54. A strong 19-6 first quarter would set the tone early as the CCC women would force seven first-quarter turnovers for Connors State. The Cowgirls would try to cut into the lead in the second quarter but the full-court press continued to be too much forcing five more turnovers.


The Ravens would lead 36-22 at the half. Devin Wright would lead all scorers in the first half with 11 points. It was much of the same in the second for CCC as they controlled the game on both sides of the ball. Faith Simpson started to find her rhythm in the second half finishing with 16 points and 9 rebounds. Devin Wright added 13 alongside Simpson and off the bench, Nakia Cullom and Cheyenne Banks would add 13 and 8. Early foul trouble kept the Cowgirls leading scorer from going with 0 in the first half and only finishing with 7. Red Ravens are on the road as they start conference play on Wednesday in Cowley.

Sedan Faces Canton-Galva in 8-Man Quarterfinals


The Sedan Blue Devils are one step closer to the 8-Man DI finals, but the team now faces its toughest test yet in Friday's quarterfinals.


The Canton-Galva Eagles are 9-1 and hail from District 4, which also includes defending state champion Little River. The team is led by senior wide receiver and Kansas State commit Tyson Struber. He has recorded over 1100 receiving yards this season and holds career 8-Man records in both yards and touchdowns.


Sedan comes in at 10-0 and are the top seed of District 1. The Blue Devils have used a prolific offense to outscore its regular season opponents 484-60. The team overcame Flinthills in the first round before coming from behind to defeat Chase County last week.

Raven Women Waltz Past Bethany JV


The Coffeyville women's basketball team remains undefeated after defeating Bethany JV 89-36 on Wednesday.


The Lady Swedes junior varsity, coached by former Coffeyville assistant Sarah Bartel, trailed by double-digits for the vast majority of the contest. Coffeyville grabbed a 12-point lead by the end of the first quarter, extended that lead to 32 by the end of the first half, and even shut out Bethany JV in the third quarter. The fourth quarter saw the two teams evenly matched, but it was much too late for any sort of comeback attempt, as Coffeyville secured its 53-point victory.


The Red Ravens were effective on both sides of the ball, shooting over 45 percent from the field and draining a season-high 13 three-pointers. Wednesday's large lead also allowed head coach Tony Turner to give equal minutes to almost every member of the roster. No starter logged more than 15 minutes. However, Amiya Josey did lead the the Ravens in scoring once again, gathering 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting. Paige Scott and Cheyenne Banks each recorded 14 points a piece, while Jordynn Conner brought in 13 rebounds in just 15 minutes.


The Red Raven women are now 5-0 heading into a Friday night matchup with Connors State. The men will join them, playing against Southern Arkansas Tech. Pregame will start at 5:00 pm, with the women tipping off at 5:30.



Ravens Split at NEO as Women Remain Undefeated


It was split fortunes for Red Raven basketball on Tuesday, as the women left Oklahoma with a 52-43 victory over NEO A&M while the men were defeated 81-73.


The women's game was a defensive showcase, as both teams showed off their height and ability to guard the basket. Neither team shot above 35 percent from the field, leading to a halftime score of just 26-24 in favor of the Lady Norse. However, with the game still fairly close heading into the fourth quarter, the Ravens got a huge boost its bench, particulary from freshman guard Martina Aeschliman, who hit three 3-pointers in a row to give her team the biggest lead of the game. Coffeyville outscored NEO 18-6 in the final period, pulling away for a comfortable 9-point victory.


Not one Raven finished in double-digits, but Aeschliman and Dariauna Carter led the scoring effort with 9 each. Nakia Cullom added 8 points off of the bench. NEO's Dariann Myles was the game's only double-digit scorer with 11. Coffeyville is now 4-0 on the season and will be back in Coffeyville tomorrow to welcome Bethany JV before Friday's matchup with Connors State.


The men's game was a rematch of just a few days prior. Coffeyville had won the first contest 86-70, but they found themselves unable to pull away despite a 20-point first half performance from sophomore guard Love Bettis. The Red Ravens, who are without four key players due to injury or ineligibility, found themselves unable to keep up with former Independence standout Johnathan Mogbo inside the paint. The lead would change hands several times throughout the game, but it was the Golden Norse who finally pulled away in the game's closing minutes to exact their revenge on Coffeyville.


Highly-touted guard Brian Moore and Mogbo combined for 49 of NEO's 81 points, while Bettis finished with 27 points. The Ravens are now 3-2 and have now dropped two straight, but will be back in Coffeyville this Friday as they take on Southern Arkansas University Tech.

Red Ravens Soccer Selected for DI Championship


The Coffeyville men's soccer team will have a shot at a national championship.


The Red Ravens received an at-large bid and the 10-seed at the NJCAA DI Men's Soccer Championship after a 17-2-1 season. They will participate in pool play between November 15th through the 17th against 3-seed Iowa Western (16-1-1) and 6-seed Laramie County (15-1-1).


The top team in each pool advances to the semifinals on November 19th, finally culiminating in the national championship game on the 20th.

Fort Scott to Terminate Football Program

A Kansas Jayhawk Conference member has made the decision to terminate their football program. Fort Scott Community College has confirmed the 2021 season will be their last. Board of Trustees President Alysia Johnston says they do not have the resources to maintain a football team that would be competitive in the Jayhawk Conference.


Since 2016, the Greyhounds are a combined 14-39. In 2019 FSCC had to vacate wins and in the spring 2021 season they had to cancel the season after just three games. Despite the lack of recent success, this is a program with history. The Greyhounds have seen former players make it in the NFL, including Jason Pierre-Paul and Levonta David, who were both on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl team last year. While most of the current players have already begun trying to find new teams, the college will honor scholarships for all football student-athletes who choose to stay and continue their education.

Coffeyville Splits Games at CSB Classic


The Coffeyville Red Ravens split its two games over the weekend, defeating NEO A&M 86-70 but losing to Eastern Oklahoma State 109-103.


Friday's win didn't come easy. Coffeyville and NEO both came ready to play, and the scoreline reflected that at halftime with the two teams tied at 40. However, Coffeyville would use strong play from its guards to pull away, with the Norsemen unable to keep up. Leading scorer Love Bettis picked up 22, while TJ Fritz came off the bench for 14 points and 4 three-pointers. NEO point guard Brian Moore led all scorers in the contest with 33, including 19 in the first half. Independence transfer Johnathon Mogbo gathered 15 points for the Norsemen.


Saturday's game was perhaps one to forget for Coffeyville. The Ravens, who have been plagued by injury early in the season, fell behind early. The team gave into the Mountaineer pressure, giving up possession frequently and allowing for easy buckets both inside and out. After trailing by 16 at the half, Coffeyville saw that deficit increase to as much as 23 before starting its comeback effort. A slow and steady pace would benefit the Ravens, but despite pulling back to within 5, there just wasn't enough time on the clock for the final push. Bettis scored 27 in defeat, with Deng Mayar joining him in double digits with 18. Four Mountaineers scored above 20 points in their triple-digit performance.


The women also played over the weekend in Independence, winning both over Sterling JV and a ranked Eastern Oklahoma State. The two teams will reconvene once again for a men and women doubleheader next Tuesday in Miami, Oklahoma. They'll get set for another matchup with NEO. Pregame for the women's game will start at 5:00 on US98.1, KUSN.

Sedan Gets Measure of Revenge, Downs Chase County


The Sedan Blue Devils may have thought history was repeating itself as they were down 14-0 after one quarter of play. Sedan then proceeded to take over the game and outscored Chase County 34-12 over the final three quarters to walk home with a 34-26 win Friday night.


After swapping three and out's Chase County got onto the scoreboard when quarterback Mitch Budke found wide receiver Aiden Eidman in the back of the end zone to put the Bulldogs up 6-0 after the two-point conversion failed. After forcing a turnover on downs, Chase County quickly got onto the scoreboard once again as Budke rushed down the right side of the field for a 26-yard touchdown to give the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead.


Sedan immediately went on a 40-yard drive punctuated by a one-yard TD run from Brec Long to make the score 14-6.


After another Chase County touchdown, Long once again found pay dirt.


After Chase County threw an interception late in the half, Long once again made the Bulldogs pay. After the two-point version, Sedan headed to the locker room with a 22-20 lead.


The defenses of both teams had control of the first part of the second half before Sedan was able to strike with the big play once again. The team would swap touchdowns to arrange the final score.


Sedan moves to 10-0 on the season and will host Canton-Galva next week while Chase County's season ends with an 8-2 record.


Red Ravens Host Winless Butler in First Round


After their week nine win over Independence, Coffeyville Community College went from preparing for a first-round matchup against Fort Scott to a matchup against a winless Butler. The Grizzlies, who had their wins vacated due to playing an ineligible player, fell from the three seed to the eight seed. Red Ravens Head Coach Jeff Leiker says this decision negatively impacts their team so they filed an appeal.


The Red Ravens were the last team to beat Butler on the field as they had won four straight since that loss before the wins were vacated. Coach Leiker says he expects Butler to be fired up and play harder. It's another Sunday matchup as the pregame will start at 12:30pm and kick-off will be at 1:00pm on KUSN 98.1.

Nado Look to Use Offseason to Improve


The Field Kindley football season came to an end last week with a first-round loss to KC Piper. Coach Deonta Wade says while the team was young and inexperienced they were able to get better each week, especially the defense.


Coach Wade says one thing they want to improve this offseason is the offense. The Nado only lose four seniors and should return the majority of their team. Coach Wade says he looks for guys like Amir Luten, Aaron Tunstall, Mason Lochner, John McGlothin and more to step up and be the leaders of the team coming into next year.   

Butler Vacates Wins, Matchups Change for KJCCC Playoffs


The KJCCC football playoffs will have a different look than originally planned.


Butler has vacated all of its regular season wins due to using an ineligible player. They will enter the Jayhawk Conference playoffs as the #8 seed.


That means that the potential Coffeyville-Butler rematch will come one week sooner than expected. The #1-seeded Ravens will host the Grizzlies at 1:00 pm this Sunday. at Veterans Memorial Stadium.


Independence, the team that Coffeyville defeated 19-9 last Sunday, now faces #7-seeded Fort Scott in the first round. Hutchinson, previously the #5 seed and a team set to play on the road against Garden City, moves up to the #3 seed and will play at home against Highland. The Red Ravens defeated Hutchinson earlier this year, 17-10.

CCC Basketball Starts Season with Two Big Victories


Both CCC basketball teams came away with big victories to start the season, with the women defeating Oklahoma Wesleyan JV 80-23 and the men defeating Fort Scott 87-60.


The women's game wasn't close for any amount of time, as Coffeyville jumped out to a 20-2 lead by the end of the 1st quarter. While the Eagles fought back at times, the Ravens were just too big and too quick for the JV squad to handle. Coffeyville controlled the post, with both returning starter Faith Simpson and newcomers Kionce Woods and Cheyenne Banks also adding extra height inside. After a rather balanced third quarter, the Ravens again held OKWU's JV to just 2 total points in the 4th quarter, eventually claiming a rather simple 57-point victory.


Amiya Josey led all Ravens scorers with 11, but 13 out of 14 Ravens scored at least 2 points during the game. Simpson also put up a solid performance, scoring 8 and bringing in a team leading 9 rebounds.


The men's game saw two teams looking to up the pressure early. Both teams started out in a full court press, and for a time, the Greyhounds kept up with the defending national champions. However, with the score tied up at 25, Coffeyville took a lead they never gave up, rolling off a 15-2 run before halftime to take a 40-27 lead. Out of the locker rooms, Coffeyville continued, to keep themselves under control, never giving into the extra pressure. The lead steadily increased, eventually coming to rest at 27 as the Ravens took their season-opening victory.


UNC-Asheville (NCAA DI) transfer AJ McBride impressed in his first game as a Raven, scoring 19 on 6-of-9 shooting. Other double digit scorers included Las Vegas freshman Dayshawn Wiley (16), returning starter Love Bettis (14), and Western Texas (NJCAA) transfer Deng Mayar (14).


The men will be in action again on Tuesday, going on a long road trip to face Missouri State-West Plains in a non-conference matchup. The women will play next in the Indy Classic, this coming Thursday and Friday.
