The Cowley College men’s basketball team never trailed and led by as many as 34 points (78-44) in an 81-62 victory over rival Coffeyville Community College Saturday afternoon inside W.S. Scott Auditorium.

Cowley had seven players score in the first eight minutes of Saturday’s game as they built leads of 11-1, 31-11, and 50-22 at the end of the first half.

Freshman point guard Arzhonte Dallas scored 15 of his game-high 18 points in the opening half, and Cowley outshot Coffeyville 54 percent to 29 percent while building the 28-point advantage.

“I thought we came ready to play. We played with a lot of intensity and urgency in the first half,” Cowley head coach Donnie Jackson said.

The Tigers’ lead would balloon to 34 points (78-44) following a dunk by freshman Shamarrie Hugie, and Cowley would cruise to the 19-point win.

Cowley’s sixth victory in a row improves the Tigers’ record to 8-1 overall and 3-0 in the Jayhawk Conference.

Tiger sophomore Jeff Nwankwo had several dunks in the game, including one that ended up on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays, and finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, and four steals.

Hugie added 13 points and nine rebounds in 18 minutes of action, while three other Tigers finished with eight points apiece.

CJ Smith and Jahni Summers led Coffeyville with 13 points apiece. The Red Ravens are now 4-4 overall and 1-2 in the conference.

Cowley made a season-high 12 three-pointers in the victory.

“We still have a few things we need to clean up, but we will address those in practice,” Jackson said.

Cowley will face another tough test when they play at unbeaten Barton County Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. The No. 8-ranked Cougars (9-0) and Tigers are tied with Garden City atop the conference with a record of 3-0.

“Barton is currently in a class of their own,” Jackson said. “They are deep and experienced. They have offensive firepower, and they can guard. We will really need to be locked in to give ourselves a chance to win.”

LaJae Jones leads four Barton players averaging double figures in scoring with an average of 18 points per game. Nwankwo and Dallas lead Cowley with an average of 16 points per contest.

In a game that featured nine lead changes and five ties, the No. 24-ranked Coffeyville Community College Lady Red Ravens scored the final seven points of Saturday’s game at Cowley College to defeat the Lady Tigers 66-60.

The Teams were tied 17-17 at the end of the first quarter, with sophomore Ndack Mbengue leading Cowley with 10 points. With the Lady Tigers making only 3-of-16 shots in the second quarter, Coffeyville took a 34-27 halftime lead behind 13 first-half points from Tetona Woods-Blackowl.

Cowley bounced back to shoot 50 percent in the third quarter and out-scored Coffeyville 22-14 while taking a 49-48 lead into the final quarter of play.

Cowley would lead by as many as five points (55-50) in the fourth quarter and clung to a one-point lead (60-59) following a basket by freshman Destiny Yates with 2:15 remaining. However, Coffeyville would score the game’s final seven points as they held on for the 66-60 road win.

“We played hard, we just did not get it done,” Cowley head coach Todd Clark said.
