'Hound men drop pair of home games

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Fort Scott Community College's men dropped a pair of home games at Arnold Arena Saturday and Monday, one of which could come back to haunt the Greyhounds in the chase for a home game in the Region VI-Division II Tournament.

The Greyhounds dropped a 66-62 verdict to independent Hesston, suffering their first loss in region play. That makes a Feb. 15 rematch at Hesston extremely important in order to prevent a tie-breaker from going against Fort Scott (2-1 region, 9-11 overall).

The Greyhounds led at the half, 32-30, but Hesston (1-2, 10-9) outscored Fort Scott 36-30 in the second half. the Greyhounds shot just 28 percent from the field. Anthony Cerda led the 'Hounds with 17 points. Dametrius Walker added 15 and Brolon Monton had 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Monday, the 'Hounds were unable to overcome hot shooting by visiting Southeast (Neb.) in an 85-67 loss in which the Storm shot 54 percent from the field.

Bobby Parker scored 33 points for the Storm (10-9) and Jalen Wilkins-McCoy added 24. The two combined to make 22 of 26 shots from the field.

Kristan Rawls led the 'Hounds with 12 points off the bench. Tyler Zinn bounced back from an 0-for-11 game Saturday to follow up with 11 points in this one.

The Greyhounds go to Kansas City Saturday for a Jayhawk Conference game.
