Lady Buffs race to win; boys fall in swat fest–Local Scores


Audio Highlights: GCHS girls vs. Denver South

Garden City, Kan (westernkansasnews.com)-Jaymie Berbeck had a tough time hitting a shot in the first few minutes of Friday night’s game at the Garden. But that was a distant memory by the time the final horn sounded. 

Bernbeck notched her first double-double of the season-scoring 25 points and pulling down 10 rebounds as the Lady Buffs ransacked Denver South 66-29. 

“We started off really slow; I was shocked we were able to put 66 points up on the board,” Head Coach David Upton said after the game. “That says a lot about our second-half effort; to be able to do the things that we did.”

Things weren’t all rosey for the first eight minutes. Garden City (3-2) trailed by two after one quarter. But after that-it was all Lady Buffs. Upton’s squad outscored the Lady Rebels 57-19 over the final three periods. 

Taryn Tempel scored 16 points and Jessica Carillo added ten. Courtney Kindel led Denver South with 12.

Garden City, Kan-Buffs Coach Jacy Holloway and company will remember the name Ibrahim Sylla. 

The senior standout who has already committed to Northern Colorado dominated Garden City-scoring 21 points, pulling down 10 rebounds and blocking five shots in a 62-52 win Friday night at the Garden in day two of the 2013 Southwest Classic. 

“Give them credit,” Holloway said after the game. “They kept lobbing it into him and we weren’t able to box out. I’m hoping this is a wake-up call for our guys.”

Things looked good out of the gates for Garden City. After controlling the opening tip, Hunter Delgado found Caleb Tramp on a lob to give the Buffs a 2-0 advantage. They would pad their lead to 7-0 before the avalanche hit. 

The Rebels scored 10 of the final 12 points in the first quarter; then proceeded to outscore Holloway’s squad 27-17 in the second quarter, and by the time everyone looked up at the scoreboard, Garden City’s early seven-point lead had morphed into an 11-point halftime deficit. 

Trailed by as many as 15 in the second half, Garden City made one final push to reclaim the lead. And after Mitchell Hernandez connected on a four-point play, the Buffs were within two. But that’s as close as they got and the Rebels would finish off the home team from the foul line. Denver South connected on 21-of-29 free shots.
