The SBCS girls basketball team put together a great game, both offensively and defensively, to play the tough and talented JCN team very close. The Ravens had fallen to the Chargers 3-42 back in October, committing a season high 25 turnover in the process. However, tonight was a very different story! SBCS made key plays throughout the game, keeping the game within striking distance. Not once did SBCS let JCN get more than nine points ahead. SBCS cut their turnovers in half, making only 12 in tonight’s meeting. In fact, the Chargers outscored the Ravens 20-0 in the first quarter alone on October 23, but the Ravens held the Chargers to 20 points in the whole game tonight! Despite the Ravens tremendous effort and improvement, they still fell 11-20 in the A Game.

SBCS was victorious in the B Game at Pleasant Ridge on Monday night, but couldn’t get things going in the A Game. With the same Ravens playing in both the B and A Games, it can be difficult to stay strong against the bigger teams.

In the B Game, SBCS put together a strong 4th quarter to come from behind to force overtime. After trailing 2-9 at halftime, the Ravens began to inch closer and closer to the Rams with their tight defense and getting some of their shots to fall. By the end of the 3rd quarter, the Ravens still trailed the Rams 7-12. SBCS kept pushing, and ultimately got within one point. Hannah Kocour tied the game on a free throw with 41 seconds remaining. With the scored tied 12-12, time ran out and forced overtime. Scarlett Begley scored the winning basket, and Mary Wurtz got the assist, as she passed across the lane to Begley after the inbounds pass. Other Raven scorers in the game included Margaret Mary Kerr (4), Elizabeth Humburg (3), and Emily Beien (2). Scarlett Begley and Elizabeth Humburg grabbed 3 rebounds each, while Norah Koechner greatly helped the Ravens with her 5 steals.  

The A Game didn’t go quite as smoothly for the Ravens, as they struggled to break the Rams press in the first half. SBCS trailed 1-8 at the end of the first quarter, and 2-14 by halftime. Sloppy passes and turnovers again halted the Raven effort. SBCS only made one field goal all evening, a 3-pointer by Norah Koechner which she swished through from the right top of the arc in the 3rd quarter. Emily Beien grabbed 6 rebounds and Hannah Kocour grabbed 5 rebounds for the Ravens. Margaret Mary Kerr made 2 steals.

The SBCS Lady Ravens put up a valiant fight against Atchison Middle School, but couldn’t pull out a victory in either game. Turnovers again halted the SBCS effort. With only nice players total for the second game in a row, the Ravens played very hard, but simply ran out of energy at the end. The AMS Braves height and speed propelled them to two victories over the Ravens.

In the A game, SBCS managed to score only 10 points, although many Ravens scored. Emily Beien, Elizabeth Humburg, Norah Koechner, and Hannah Kocour all made basket for SBCS. Humburg led the team in rebounds with six. Margaret Mary Kerr posted three steals. The Braves ultimately prevailed 28-10.

Turnovers again halted the Raven effort. The final score was 7-41, with all the SBCS points coming in the 3rd Quarter.
