W. Basketball – JCCC back on track

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Playing for the first time since falling from the unbeaten ranks, the Johnson County Community College women’s basketball team took out their frustration on the Fort Scott Community College Lady Greyhounds last Saturday at Arnold Arena. The Lady Cavaliers handed Fort Scott a 51-point loss, and Johnson County improved to 22-1 overall with a 94-43 victory.

Sophomore center Kariel Hutt had a monster game, finishing with a double-double of 22 points and a career high 21 rebounds. She also had four assists and three blocks.  That effort propelled her to her second consecutive KJCCC/Verizon Wireless Player of the Week honor, and her third of the year.

Hutt hit all 10 of her field goal attempts, and was 2-of-4 at the line. She also dominated the defensive of the boards, hauling down 14, one less than Fort Scott had all together for the game.

Freshman Kelsey Barrett also had her best effort as a collegiate player, tying Hutt with 22 points. She hit 8-of-13 shots, including three 3-pointers, and was 3-of-5 at the line. She was also credited with seven rebounds.

Also scoring in double figures for JCCC were sophomores Sameia Kendall with 17, and Taylor McDowell with 12.

Baylea McAdams led Fort Scott with nine points.
