  • The Dodge City Conquistadors couldn't keep up their defensive intensity in the second half in losing to the Moberly Greyhounds 90-83 in a first round game of the Coffeyville Resources Elite 8 Tournament at Nellis West Gymnasium. The Conqs (10-2), who were ranked 22nd in the latest NJCAA poll, led the No. 19 Greyhounds by three at halftime and stay in the game until less than eight minutes remaining in regulation. Moberly slowly increased their lead to as much as nine points late in the game.

Dodge City didn't help itself at the foul line, shooting 28-of-45 for the game (9-of-18 in the second half). E.J. Eaves led Dodge City in scoring with 22 points, while Larry Beckett and Ameer Jackson added 14 points apiece, George Brock 12 and Delvon Rencher 11.
