W. Basketball – Lady Cavaliers win big at Coffeyville

Kariel HuttOVERLAND PARK, KS – It could have been easy for the Johnson County Community College women’s basketball team to look ahead to Saturday’s showdown with No. 1 Highland, but the Lady Cavaliers came out focused at Coffeyville, Wednesday night, and hammered the Lady Ravens, 67-40. 

Johnson County (15-1, 5-1) set two series records against the Ravens. The 27-point margin was the largest by JCCC in a win at Coffeyville, breaking the old margin by 10. The 40 points by Coffeyville are also the fewest scored against JCCC at Nellis Hall. The previous low mark was 43 set in 2009. 

Behind a balanced attack, Johnson County built a 15-point lead at the break, and increased that margin by 12 more in the second half. Four JCCC players finished in double figures scoring. Sophomore guard DaShawn Harden and freshman forward Kariel Hutt led the Lady Cavaliers with 13 points each. Hutt also had a game-high 10 rebounds to her earn her second double-double of the season. 

Sophomore forward Kathleen Brisbane and freshman forward Samantha Short each poured in 10 points. Freshmen guards Juanita Robinson and Timeka O’Neal were solid as well, contributing nine and seven points respectively. 

Johnson County will now turns their attention to Saturday’s opponent, No. 1 ranked Highland Community College. JCCC lost by three points at Highland earlier this season, the team’s only setback. Highland had won 16 straight until Wednesday night, but they suffered a 61-53 home loss to Cowley. The winner will take over sole possession of first place in the East Jayhawk Conference standings.
