Coffeyville is very good. They are the defending Region 6 champs and are ranked 6th in the NJCAA this year. But when they make 10 more free throws than what the opponent attempted, it is going to be very difficult to win in Nellis Hall. That was the case Saturday afternoon at the Red Ravens were a dizzying 32-48 at the foul line and Seward was 14-22. The Ravens beat the Saints 71-62. Three Saints fouled out.
The guys in green came out ready to play bolting to a 10-2 lead. Seward led 13-12 after one. The game was tied at 23-23 with 6:12 to play in the half.

Seward went up 48-39 with 10:30 to before a foul and technical against a Saint made it 48-42 with 10:16 to play. The Saints would go back up nine at 51-42. Seward led 54-47 with 8:27 to play. Seward led 61-60 before Coffeyville’s Tyler Perry hit a well guarded fade away with one second left on the shot clock.
