Lobos and Loboettes Both Head for Denver City Next Weekend

The Levelland Lobos and Loboettes will spend a weekend together coming up next Thursday, Friday and Saturday as both teams are headed to the 2021 Denver City Tournament.

While both teams are in action at the tournament, the format is very different for the two formats.

The Lobos will open with Pool Play on Thursday in the “B Pool” with Midland Legacy and Muleshoe. Levelland plays Midland Legacy on Thursday at 11:00am in the North Gym and plays again at 3:30pm in the Main Gym against Muleshoe.

From there the pools will cross each other on Friday with a guarantee game on the slate for Saturday in essence getting the Lobos four games over three days.

The Loboettes will not go through a pool format, instead the girls varsity tournament is all bracket play and the #4 Loboettes have a bye right out of the box.

They will open on Thursday at 3:30pm against the winner of the Midland Christian vs. Littlefield game going earlier in the day Thursday with bracket play moving into Friday and Saturday through the weekend.

The Lobos Still Search for Offense with Loss at Greenwood

The Levelland Lobos went looking to improve their offensive output on Tuesday and while the scoring was up from Monday, turnovers were still an issue as Levelland dropped the contest to the Rangers 66-to-46 to move to one-and-three on the season.

The Lobos would trail 31-to-26 at the half and while the Greenwood Rangers would score 21 in the third and 14 more in the fourth, the Lobos couldn’t keep pace and fell 66-to-46 for the loss.

Levelland got 14 from Zameron LeCroy, 12 from Taeshaun Jones and ten from Jerry Haile in the loss while Caleb Salazar scored nine and Aaron Williams added a single free throw.

Greenwould would find four double figure scorers as Colton Calicoatte scored 18, Alex Gutierrez added 14, Brennyn Barnhill tossed in 13 and Kevin Kitto scored 12 in the win.

The turnover number was down for the Lobos at 16 on the game but shots didn’t fall as the Lobos hit 15-of-39 from the field at 38% and just 11-of-23 from the free throw line at 48%.

Greenwood shot it pretty well at 26-fo-49 from the field at 51% while connecting on 11-of-17 from the free throw line.

Levelland will slip to one-and-three on the season going into the Thanksgiving break as they return to the court on November 30th with a trip to Andrews.

Loboettes No Issues with Rangerettes, #4 Levelland Eight-and-One at Thanksgiving Break

The Levelland Loboettes had no issue with a pre-Thanksgiving trip to Midland Greenwood as the #4 Loboettes came home with a 62-to-31 win to move to eight-and-one on the season.

It was a fast start for the Levelland Loboettes hitting seven-of-10 from the field in the front eight minutes and not allowing a Rangerette field goal until just 44 seconds remained. It meant a 24-to-three lead for the Loboettes and that was pretty much that.

Levelland would slow offensively in the second getting just 11 down but only allowing six points and leading 35-to-nine at the half.

Levelland would score just 27 second half points but held Greenwood to 21 points and went on for a 62-to-31 win.

The Loboettes got 17 from Emma Kent hitting four-of-four from the free throw line while Laci White hit a pair of threes and went three-of-four from the stripe for 13 points. Myka Graff scored ten on the back of a pair of threes with Colbi Barnett and Emery Smith scoring eight each. McKenna Ruiz, Raegan LaBadie and Carly Tienda scored two each and Amaya Munguia tossed in a single free throw in the win.

Karsyn Payton and Delani Shockley scored ten each but only five Rangerettes would score in the contest as Levelland held Greenwood to just nine-of-44 from the floor.

Levelland shot it pretty well at 20-of-42 from field at 47% and connected on 12-of-24 from the short range at 50% and 15-of-18 from the free throw line at 83%.

While Levelland did give up 18 turnovers in the game they would collect 23 turnovers and scored 11 off of Rangerette turnovers.

The Loboettes are off now through the Thanksgiving holiday and will enjoy the holiday on a eight-and-one record with a return to the court on Tuesday November 30th with a trip to Andrews.

The Lobos will join the Loboettes on the that Tuesday with both Junior Varsity teams tipping at 4:30pm with Varsity Girls and Freshman Boys at 6:00pm and Varsity Boys and Freshman Girls at 7:30pm.

Lobo Offense Struggles to Find Rhythm Against Lubbock High

The Levelland Lobos struggled to find ways to score the basketball Monday afternoon as Levelland fell to the Lubbock High Westerners 44-to-39 on a 22 turnover day.

Lubbock High would lead Levelland nine-to-two early but the Lobos would go on a nine-to-two run through the back of the quarter to leave the contest tied at 11 after one frame.

Scoring would continue to be hard to come through the entire game as Levelland led 23-to-21 at the half but the Westerners would take the third ten-to-sis to lead 31-to-29 after three.

The Lobos never quite were out of reach but would never lead again as the Westerners won the fourth 13-to-eight and took the 44-to-39 win.

Taeshaun Jones scored 20 points to pace the Lobos but was the only Lobo to find double figures as Uriel Calderon and Jerry Haile scored five each, Zameron LeCroy added four and Caleb Salazar scored three. Aaron Williams added two in the loss.

The Westerners got just one double figure as Cole Stephens led Lubbock High with 13 points in the win.

Levelland would get off just 40 field goal attempts hitting 14-of-40 at 35% while connecting on four-of-16 back of the arch at 25% and suffering under the weight of 22 turnovers on the day.

While Levelland led 16-to-nine after one quarter, Jones continued the onslaught with nine more points and led the Lobos to a 35-to-24 lead at the break.
