M. Basketball - Cavaliers fall in OT at Southeast

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – For the second time in their first three games, the Johnson County Community College men’s basketball team saw a potential victory taken away in the in the finals seconds of a game.

In the Cavaliers season opener, Indian Hills nailed a buzzer beating 3-point shot to take down Johnson County 86-84.  On Tuesday night at Southeast Community College, the Storm put back a shot off a missed 3-pointer with 2.5 seconds left, but unlike the opener, the Cavaliers did have shot to steal the victory back with their own buzzer beater. However, the half-court shot was off the mark, and Johnson County lost in overtime, 90-89.

Johnson County forced 32 turnovers and recorded 16 steals in the game but were not able to overcome a hot-shooting Storm team that hit nearly 60 percent from the field and 47 percent from 3-point range. The Cavaliers shot a dismal 38 percent and 21 percent beyond the 3- point stripe.

Sophomore guard Anthony Lupardus led Johnson County with 22 points and nine rebounds. It could have been more, but he struggled from the field hitting just 8-of-28 attempts.

Freshmen Xavier Womack and General Williams also finished in doubles figures with 13 and 12 respectively.

Jalen Wilkins-McCoy led Southeast with 24 points. He was perfect from field as he nailed all 10 of his attempts. He also had 12 rebounds. Daniel Quesenbarry followed with 20 points and team high 14 rebounds.

The schedule doesn’t get any easier for the Cavaliers. They travel to Quincey, Ill., this weekend for games against John Wood Community College on Friday, Nov. 10, and against Kankakee Community College on Saturday, Nov. 11.  They play their home opener against North Central Missouri College on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m.
