Wednesday, March 2, 2011

HUTCHINSON -- Hutchinson outscored Fort Scott Community College's men 25-17 in the second half here Tuesday night as the Blue Dragons put an end to the Greyhounds' season with a 51-39 decision in the first round of the Region VI Tournament.

The 39 points are the fewest the Greyhounds (5-26) have scored in the Region VI Tournament since it expanded to 16 teams and was the third-lowest total in school history since the shot clock was made a part of the game.

The Blue Dragons (25-6) held a 12-4 lead after 9 1/2 minutes of play. But the Greyhounds, playing without starter Menas Stephens, scrapped and held a 14-13 lead after Teance Walton made a basket with 7:07 left in the half.

Fort Scott got within 23-22 on Alex Barner's 3-point goal with 12 seconds left in the half. But Kervens Calixte answered for Hutch to push the lead back to 4 points as the halftime buzzer sounded.

Only three players scored for the 'Hounds. Walton finished with 17 points, Barner with 13 and Robert Mason with 9. Mark Braden led Hutchinson, which was held to its lowest score of the season, with 12 points.

The Dragons had beaten Fort Scott, 80-47, here on Nov. 4.
