It Was A Bryant White Kinda Night, Levelland Lobos Move to Four-and-Oh with 77-to-39 Win Over Andrews

Levelland Senior Forward Bryant White (thanks to Veronica Muniz for the photo)

It was Bryant White kind of a night on Tuesday as the senior forward tossed down 22 for the Levelland Lobos as the drummed Andrews 77-to-39 to move their mark to four-and-one on the season.

Bryant White jumped started the offensive hitting for five in the front frame and coupled with four from Zaiden LeCroy and Isaiah Salazar ran the Lobos out to a 17-to-five lead after one and they never looked back.

The Lobos would get 18 more in the second as Isaiah Salazar dropped five in the second frame with Taeshaun Jones popping of the bench for five and behind more sticky defense, Levelland ran the lead to 35-to-13 at the half.

Then Bryant White really got going.

The senior poured in three threes and 17 points in the final 16 minutes leading the Lobos to a 42 point second half. Andrews would push the issue getting ten second half points from Andre Villegas put it was too little too late and Levelland cruised in for the 77-to-39 win.

Levelland got 22 from Bryant White, 13 from Isaiah Salazar and ten from Zaiden LeCroy in the win. Taeshaun Jones had a night with nine off the bench while Kaleb Penner, Luis Otero and Hunter Reed scored six each. Dylan Bordayo scored five in the win.

Andre Villegas put together a solid game to pace Andrews as he tossed in 15 but was the only Mustang in double figures.

Levelland would connect on 26-of-54 from the field at 48% while knocking down seven-of-20 back of the arch at 35% and 18-of-28 from the free throw line at 64%.

Andrews would get just 13 field goals on 40 shots while hitting just two-of-ten from behind the arch and 11-of-22 from the free throw line.

Turnovers were key as the Lobos forced 35 Andrews turnovers and turned them into 15 points.

Levelland, now four-and-one in 2020, is on a four game winning streak and heads to Monahans to take on the Loboes Friday night.

Freshman basketball starts at 4:30pm with Junior Varsity at 6:00pm and Varsity basketball at 7:30pm.

Catch the Lobos on Friday night on KLVT AM1230, http://www.klvtradio.com and on Levelland Sports Nation with Lobo Pregame Show at 7:00pm.

Graff and Watkins Pace Loboettes in 62-to-21 Win Over Andrews, Levelland Moves to Five-and-Oh

Myka Graff scored 13 and Michaela Watkins added 11 Tuesday night as the Levelland Loboettes grabbed win number five on the season with a 62-to-21 win over the Andrews Lady Mustangs.

It was a slow start for everyone as Levelland got a Watkins three, a field goal from Laci White and a pair of free throws from Graff in the front eight minutes for a seven point quarter. Meanwhile Andrews went oh-of-seven from the field and oh-of-two from the free throw line leaving Levelland in front seven-to-nothing after eight minutes of basketball.

The Loboettes got a little more offense going in second connecting on three field goals but adding nine free throws to rally for 14 points. They would hold Andrews to six points and Levelland would lead 21-to-six at the half.

It only grew from there Levelland would find the range from distance in the back 16 minutes.

Myka Graff would connect for a pair of threes while Mallory Blocker, Emma Kent, Mahalie Stafford and Laci White would all add three pointers. Levelland hit for six-of-ten back of the arch in the back half scoring 20 in the third and 21 in the fourth, that while holding Andrews to 15 second half points and taking the 62-to-21 win.

Levelland would get 13 from Myka Graff, 11 from Michaela Watkins and nine from Emma Kent. Laci White added seven, Mahalie Stafford and Mallory Blocker scored six each with Allie Latham adding five and Raegan LaBadie tossed in three in the win.

Andrews couldn’t find a double figure scorer. Paige Ortiz led the Lady Mustangs with eight while Cassidy Jacquez added four in the loss.

While struggling to shoot it in the front half, Levelland would shoot well in the back stretch hitting 14-of-27 in the back sixteen minutes. The Loboettes would hit at 36% from the field for the game connecting on seven-of-20 from behind the arch and a very good 17-of-22 from the free throw line.

Andrews would get just five field goals on 34 shots taken while hitting one-of-six back of the arch and 11-of-20 from behind the free throw line.

It really came down to turnovers.

Levelland would give up 18 turnovers but collected 32 Andrews turnovers and turned those into 18 points.

The Loboettes improve to five-and-oh on the season and travel to Slaton on Friday for a Varsity only game with tip set for 6:00pm.

The Loboettes wrap up the week hosting Lubbock Monterey on Saturday with Freshman and Junior Varsity basketball starting at 2:00pm and Varsity at 3:30pm.

KLVT Radio will rejoin the Loboettes on Saturday with Loboette Pregame Show at 3:00pm on KLVT AM1230, http://www.klvtradio.com and on Levelland Sports Nation on Facebook.

Kaleb and Caleb in the Clutch, Levelland Bests Greenwood to Double Overtime

The first 40 minutes, yes 40, were a wash between the Levelland Lobos and the Midland Greenwood Rangers on Tuesday night, but a clutch effort from Kaleb Penner and Caleb Salazar in the second overtime led the Levelland Lobos past the Greenwood Rangers 65-to-61 to move the Lobos mark to three-and-one heading into Thanksgiving.

Levelland started fast behind a pair of Dylan Bordayo and a three from Kaleb Penner put the Lobos on pace for 16 front quarter points. Greenwood would get points from four different Rangers and Levelland led 16-to-nine after eight minutes.

Midland Greenwood spent the next two quarters filling the shallow hole outscoring Levelland nine-to-eight in the second and 17-to-15 in third to leave the Lobos in front 39-to-35 after three.

Greenwood bolted out of the gates in the fourth turning the four point deficit into a eight point lead. While Greenwood looked to be pulling away, the Lobos responded getting a three from Caleb Salazar and tied the contest at 50 with under 30 seconds left. Levelland would ride the tie to under five seconds to play, miss a three and send the game to overtime tied at 50.

The first overtime was very quiet as Levelland would get and early three from Dylan Bordayo and Greenwood would counter with a three point play from Colton Callicoatte sending the game to a second overtime at 53 all.

Than along came Caleb Salazar and Kaleb Penner.

Salazar would score a pair of buckets and get a big back court steal putting Levelland on pace for a big second overtime. His four was connected to a six-of-six effort from the free throw line from Kaleb Penner and the Lobos would outscore the Rangers in the final four minutes 12-to-eight to take the 65-to-61 double overtime win.

The win moves Levelland to four-and-one in 2020.

Three Lobos found double figures as Kaleb Penner led the way with 16 while Dylan Bordayo and Zaiden LeCroy scored 15 each. Caleb Salazar scored seven from the bench while Isaiah Salazar, and Bryant White scored four each and Luis Otero and Hunter Read scored two each.

Ben Yates was hard to stop for the Rangers as he poured in 22 with a 10-of-15 effort from the free throw line. Isaiah Valencia added 15 hitting five threes in the contest.

The Lobos shooting was a little cool as they hit 19-of-50 from the floor at 38% and eight-of-22 from behind the arch at 36% but they did manage a 15-of-18 from the free throw line at 83%.

Greenwood would hit 17-of-52 from the field at 33% and eight -of-28 from behind the arch at 33%. The Rangers connected on 17-of-28 from the free throw line at 61%.

Both teams gave up 22 turnovers in the contest.

Levelland improves to three-and-one going into the Thanksgiving break as Andrews comes to call on December 1st.

Both Junior Varsity teams will tip at 4:30pm, with Varsity Girls and Freshman Boys at 6:00pm, and Varsity Boys and Freshman Girls at 7:30pm.

Loboettes Out Shoot the Rangerettes, Levelland Moves to Four-and-Oh Going Into Thanksgiving

It was a lot of turnovers both ways Tuesday night but the Levelland Loboettes knocked down seven threes while shooting near 40% from the field in a 56-to-32 win leading Levelland to Thanksgiving at four-and-oh.

The Loboettes got a hot start as Michaela Watkins and Mahalie Stafford connected from behind the arch sending the Loboettes to an 11-to-four lead after eight minutes.

Levelland got stronger offensively in the second as Allie Latham scored five from the floor and Laci White connected on four-of-four from the free throw line. Greenwood got stronger as well behind four points from Natalia Lopez and three free throws from Karsyn Payton. It wouldn’t be enough to change much as Levelland took a 27-to-12 lead by half and never looked back.

While the Greenwood offense got better scoring ten points in both the third and fourth quarters, the Loboettes were better grabbing 15 in the third and 14 in the fourth to take the 56-to-32 win and move to four-and-oh on the year.

Both Laci White and Michaela Watkins found double figures with 11 each while Mahalie Stafford found doubles as well with ten. Allie Latham added seven while Myka Graff added six, Emma Kent took five, Raegan LaBadie added four and Colbi Barnett scored two in the win.

The Rangerettes scoring wasn’t nearly as spread out as Karsyn Payton scored 13, Emma Dunn took 11 and the balance of the lineup added just eight combined.

The Levelland Loboettes hit 18-of-46 from the floor at 39% and connected on seven-of-22 from behind the arch at 32%, that while Greenwood connected on just seven field goals and only one three.

Greenwood made their living at the free throw line hitting 17of-31 at a 55% clip while Levelland hit 13-of-18 at 72%.

Turnovers were heavy both ways as the Loboettes turned it over 30 times while Greenwood turned it over 27 times.

The Loboettes move to four-and-oh on the season as they hit the Thanksgiving break.

The Lobos and Loboettes both return to the court Tuesday December 1st when the Andrews Mustangs and Lady Mustangs come to call.

Both Junior Varsity teams will tip at 4:30pm, with Varsity Girls and Freshman Boys at 6:00pm, and Varsity Boys and Freshman Girls at 7:30pm.

Salazar Burns Lubbock High for 23, Hot Lobo Shooting Handles the Westerners 72-to-30

The Levelland Lobos took to the road on Monday afternoon and behind 23 points from senior Isaiah Salazar and some red hot Lobo shooting, Levelland cruised at Lubbock High 72-to-30 to move to two-and-one on the season.

The Lobos started hot behind seven first quarter points from Kaleb Penner while Luis Otero hit for five from the bench and Bryant White and Isaiah Salazar added a three pointer each. It would be a great start for Levelland as they poured in 20 in the front eight minutes. While Levelland’s offense poured it on, the Lobo defense held Lubbock High to just eight points and Levelland led after one 20-to-eight.

It grew from there as Caleb Salazar hit for seven from the bench in the second quarter and coupled with a pair of threes from Zaiden LeCroy, Levelland outscored Lubbock High 17-to-four in the second and led 35-to-12 by halftime.

Isaiah Salazar cranked up in the third hitting three threes leading Levelland to 18 third quarter points. Lubbock High got going a bit as Josh Mendez scored five and Nic Gibson added four more and gave the Westerners as 13 point third quarter. Levelland led 55-to-25 after three and it never got closer.

Levelland would pour in 17 more in the fourth and held the Westerners to just five points and Levelland cruised in with at 72-to-30 win and moved their record to two-and-one on the season.

Isaiah Salazar was red hot with 23 points on the back of five threes and a three-of-four from the free throw line. Zaiden LeCroy struck as well scoring 14 hitting a pair of threes and a four-of-four effort from the free throw line. Kaleb Penner scored nine, Luis Otero and Caleb Salazar added seven each from the bench while Bryant White chipped in five. Taeshaun Jones scored four from the bench while Dylan Bordayo and Hunter Read scored two each in the win.

Lubbock High didn’t find double figures. Nic Gibson led the scoring with eight points while Chris Morales added seven.

The Lobos flat shot it well on the road hitting 24-of-46 from the floor at 52% and connecting on 10-of-24 behind the arch at 42%. Levelland would also connect on 11-of-17 from the free throw line while holding Lubbock High to just 11 free throw attempts and 11 field goals across 36 minutes.

The Levelland defense was stingy to say the least as the Lobos turned the Westerners over 39 times and scored 16 points of the miscues.

Levelland improves to two-and-one on the season with the Midland Greenwood Rangers coming to call on Tuesday.

All teams will be in action on Tuesday with Junior Varsity Boys and Junior Varsity Girls both tipping at 12:30pm, Varsity Girls and Freshman Boys at 2:00pm and Varsity Boys and Freshman Girls at 3:30pm.

The Lobos and Loboettes will take the balance of the week off before returning to the court on Tuesday December 1st to host the Andrews Mustangs and Fillies.
