Lobos Drop Foul Marred Contest at Slaton

November 22, 2021

The Levelland Lobos dropped a 72-to-65 contest at Slaton Friday night that featured 72 free throw attempts and a combined 45 turnovers to move their record to one-and-one in 2021.

The contest started with the Levelland Lobos getting home 16 points in the front quarter as Taeshaun Jones took control of the Lobo offense pouring in 11 in the front eight minutes.

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.

The game got a little sour through the second half as the fouls piled up in a hurry.

Slaton would go to the free throw line 22 times in the second half while Levelland went to the line 16 times with the Tigers taking the third quarter 25-to-13 and the fourth 23-to-17 for the 72-to-65 win.

Taeshaun Jones had a huge night scoring 28 including a three pointer and going seven-of-11 from the free throw line while Jerry Haile scored 12 for the Lobos. Zameron LeCroy hit for nine while Caleb Salazar and Uriel Calderon scored six each and Neamiah Campos added five in the loss.

Slaton got four in double figures with Jahil Brwester scoring 17, Ayden Ramirez hitting for 15, Treven Baker tossing in 13 and Travarien Samuels hitting for ten.

Levelland didn’t shoot it all that badly hitting 20-of-50 from the field at 40% while connecting on six-of-22 from behind the arch at 27% and while the field shooting wasn’t bad, the Lobos left a lot of free throws behind hitting just 19-of-35 from the line.

Levelland will slip to one-and-one on the season and stay busy going into the Thanksgiving break hosting Lubbock High on Monday and heading to Midland Greenwood on Tuesday.
