Independence sweeps 'Hounds

Thursday, March 1, 2012

INDEPENDENCE -- Despite strong first-half performances, Fort Scott Community College's basketball teams were swept here Wednesday night by Independence in Jayhawk Conference-Eastern Division play.

Fort Scott's women led the 19th-ranked team in the NJCAA, 27-25, at the half and finished the night making half their shots from the floor (20 of 40 field-goal attempts). But 27 turnovers contributed to a 67-58 loss that ensures that the Greyhounds will have to go to Hutchinson (28-0) for the first round of the Region VI Tournament next week.

Jolee Sharp and Jataeva Arnold scored 14 points each for the Greyhounds (2-15 East, 8-21 overall). Courtney Waldner led Independence (13-4, 23-5) with 14 points.

Fort Scott's men trailed by just 3 points, 36-33, at the half. But Indy's control of the boards by a 42-26 margin aided the Pirates in the second half as they went on to an 80-64 victory.

Austin Danner led Fort Scott (1-16, 2-27) with 19 points while Teance Walton added 17. Tony Criswell led Independence (12-5, 17-12) with 24 points and Jamil Goodwin chipped in with 18.
