DODGE CITY–Jason Edwards erupted for a career-high 37 points for Dodge City’s men, sparking them to a 111-100 upset win over No. 6 Coffeyville Tuesday, and the women handled the Red Ravens 86-74 in a doubleheader at the Student Activities Center.
In the men’s game, Edwards earned his second straight start, and took advantage, scoring 37 points on 10-of-18 shooting and 5-of-10 behind the three-point line. He also made 12-of-13 free throws.
Dodge had a chance to win the game in the waning moments of regulation, but Jacobi Sebock missed a three just before the buzzer, sending the game to overtime–the third such game for the Conqs already this season.
In the extra period, the Conqs took firm control of the contest and iced the game at the foul line. They made 27 free throws and shot 82% at the stripe.
Sebock also notched a double-double for the Conqs, scoring 22 points and adding 10 rebounds. Chris Robinson had 23 points for Dodge.
Tuesday’s win marked Dodge City’s 19th consecutive win at home.
The No. 22 Conquistadors improve to 6-1 (2-0 KJCCC) with the win and return to action Saturday when they travel to Seward. Tipoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. CT.
In the women’s game, Dodge City nearly led wire-to-wire, taking a five point lead at the end of the first quarter and holding the lead from there. The Conqs buried 10 three-pointers, which is the third straight game they’ve made double digits from distance.
Defensively, Dodge held Coffeyville to just three made triples. The Red Ravens entered the game second in the nation in threes made per game (10), and that proved to be a massive reason the Conqs controlled the game.
Leah Mafua led the Conqs with 25 points, and her sister Jenna Rose chipped in 16. Bree Stephens and Jada Burton each tallied 13 points for Dodge City.
The No. 22 Conquistadors improve to 7-1 (2-0 KJCCC) with the win and return to action Saturday when they travel to Seward. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. CT.
