Cordell Hoopsters Hit Arapaho Tournament

After dominating Cheyenne-Reydon in the opening game of the Western Equipment Classic last weekend, the Cordell Blue Devils dropped two in a row to end the tournament in fourth place.

The Blue Devils started off with a flurry of offense against Cheyenne, running up a quick 8-0 lead and never really looking back. The Devils’ early performance provided ample opportunity for coach Brandon Gallagher to get his younger players quality time on the court, and those younger players made the most of the opportunity, not only holding their own, but adding to Cordell’s lead during the game.

In the end, the Blue Devils walked off the court with a 61-44 opening round victory.

The Lady Devils opened the tournament against Sayre in a game of tough defense and struggling offense - from both teams. Despite scoring only seven points in the first half of play, the Lady Devils went into the locker room down by just six points.

During the second half the Lady Devils had several opportunities to claim the lead, but were beset with turnovers and shots that just wouldn’t fall. The low-scoring affair ended at 28-21, with the Lady Eagles on top.

SPORTS

By Bob Henline

As the Cordell Blue Devils prepare for the second half of the season, Coach Brandon Gallagher characterized the first part as “mixed,” with some high points and some areas in which the team needs to improve.

“I would sum up the before Christmas part of the season as kinda mixed,” he said. “We have played well at times against a tough schedule, but also haven’t closed well a few times.”

He said the biggest lesson his team should have learned from the beginning chunk of the season is that winning teams never let up.
