Saints Finish with a Fizzle at Coffeyville

Brock Kappelmann - December 6, 2023 10:43 pm

The Seward County Saints were aiming to turn around their less than illustrious history at Coffeyville Wednesday night.  They led early in the second half after a 9-0.  But the Saints fell apart late as Coffeyville went on a 22-3 run in beating the Saints 72-57 Wednesday night in Nellis Hall on Herkelman Court.  The Saints are 2-14 at Coffeyville.

It was a highly competitive first half as the Saints were following their game plan.  They trailed 36-33 at the half.  A Carson Bennett three gave the Saints a 38-36 lead and SCCC led 42-36.  Seward led 45-44 on an Amir Whitlock three.  The game was tied 49-49.  Coffeyville raced to a 65-50 lead.

The Red Ravens led points off turnovers 25-10.  This has been a problematic stat for the Saints all season.  The Saints shot 40 percent and went 5-23 from three and 10-14 at the free throw line.  The Ravens shot 43 percent and were 7-17 from three point range and 19-24 from the foul line.

Blessin Kimble was Epic Touch Player of the Game with 13 points and seven rebounds.  Amir Whitlock had 12 points and six rebounds.

Coffeyville is 6-5 overall and 3-3 in the Jayhawk Conference.  Seward is 3-6 overall and 1-4 in the KJCCC.  Seward hosts Barton Saturday at 4pm on 107.5.  Freddy’s is the buyout sponsor.
