Below are SBCS student-athletes who placed in the top six spots on Saturday, thus scoring points for the team total.

Resilient Ravens Post Thrilling Overtime Victory in NEKL Semifinal

The SBCS Ravens sure know how to entertain a huge crowd, fighting point for point with the Valley Falls Dragons during their NEKL Tournament Semifinal Game at Valley Falls. The Ravens had many highs and lows throughout the game, with the Ravens and Dragons never pulling more than six points ahead of the other. SBCS was down by one at the half, 22-23. The Ravens then trailed by a basket, 30-32, at the end of the third quarter. The game was sent to overtime, tied at 46, after Grant Kocour drove to the basket with less than four seconds remaining when he got the ball. Kocour drove the length of the court, and popped up on a short jumper as time expired. The Ravens fell behind by as many as five points in the three minute overtime period before solid defense, several steals, and outstanding offensive rebounds secured the 53-52 victory for SBCS. Samuel Peitsch scored on a rebounded basket, just before the buzzer sounded, to win the game for the Ravens.

SBCS was led by Samuel Peitsch, who posted his first double-double of the season. Peitsch scored 20 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and made two steals. Drew Caudle aided the Ravens with his 12 points, three rebounds, five steals, and an assist. In addition to scoring the game tying basket to force overtime, Grant Kocour scored 10 points, posted 5 rebounds, made a team-high four assists, and captured two steals. Kolbran Korbelik did his part for SBCS, scoring six points, grabbing four rebounds, forcing three steals, and contributing one assist. Kenny Howard added a basket and four rebounds. Brody Mispagel added three points and four rebounds.

SBCS will take on Everest in the NEKL Tournament Final on Saturday morning, February 25. Tip-off is set for 10:15am at Valley Falls. Good luck, Ravens! 

 

Outside Shooting Keeps #6 SBCS in Quarterfinal Game Against #3 Jackson Heights

SBCS drained a total of eight 3-pointers in their quarterfinal game against the Jackson Heights Cobras on Monday night at Pleasant Ridge. Outside shooting helped the Ravens compete with the large Jackson Heights posts who make getting the ball inside quite difficult. The Ravens led for most of the first half, before the Cobras were able to pound the ball inside enough to secure the victory in the final quarter. At halftime, SBCS held on to a one point lead, 19-18. Ultimately, Jackson Heights stopped several Ravens attempts at a 3-pointer in the final minute to secure the 39-36 win.

Kenny Howard led the Ravens with 13 points and six rebounds, including three 3-pointers in the first half. Drew Caudle was right behind with 13 points, four rebounds, and an assist. Grant Kocour added five points, four rebounds, two steals, and an assist. Other SBCS scorers were Brody Mispagel (3) and Samuel Peitsch (2). Peitsch added seven rebounds to lead the Ravens in that category.

SBCS will now take on the loser of the #2 Pleasant Ridge and #7 Valley Falls game. The Ravens next game will be played on Thursday, February 23, at Valley Falls. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:15pm. Good luck to the Ravens in the rest of the NEKL tournament!
