#6 Loboettes Survive Slow Shooting for a 43-39 Win Over Greenwood, Levelland Region One 4A Area Champions

February 22, 2021

The Levelland Loboettes survived a slow day shooting the basketball and behind a great defensive effort, #6 Levelland defeated Midland Greenwood 43-to-39 clinching a 4A Region One Area Championship.

Levelland took their first lead with 4:17 to play in the front frame and behind six first quarter points from Emma Kent, Levelland led 12-to-11 after one quarter.

Levelland would also take the second quarter behind five Mahalie Stafford points and the Loboettes went to the locker room with a 23-to-20 lead.

While Levelland would never trail again, Greenwood hung around all day.

Michaela Watkins hit for seven in the third frame while Emma Kent tossed in five more and Levelland stretched the lead to 34-to-26 after three.

Greenwood would come storming back getting a pair of fourth quarter threes from Karsyn Payton and seven points from Emma Dunn and while the Rangerettes would score 13 in the final eight minutes, Levelland got six from Myka Graff along with a five-of-seven effort from the stripe in the final moments to seal the 43-to-39 win.

Emma Kent would pace the Loboettes with 15 points while Michaela Watkins scored nine and Myka Graff connected for eight. Mahalie Stafford would add seven from the bench while Allie Latham and Laci White chipped into each.

Karsyn Payton would hit five threes for 15 for the Rangerettes while Emma Dunn hit for 12 in the loss.

Levelland would shoot just 15-of-42 from the field and seven-of-17 from the free throw line and while the shooting wasn’t great the defensive was.

Levelland would force 25 Greenwood turnovers and scored six out of the turnovers and 13 out of the breaks.

Levelland moves to 26-and-oh on the year and as the year gets longer the task gets bigger.

The Loboettes colide with former district foe, the 23-and-one #2 Canyon High Lady Eagles.

The matchup is set for Wednesday February 24th at 6:00pm at Plainview High School.

A send off will be held for the Loboettes on Wednesday with the team leaving Levelland High School at 3:15pm. They will travel Hickory Street west to College Avenue, College Avenue north to US Highway 114 and east toward Lubbock.

Catch the Loboettes live on KLVT AM1230, and on Levelland Sports Nation with Pregame at 5:30pm.
