The Seward County Lady Saints host “Think Pink” night on Wednesday, as SCCC and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association come together for breast cancer awareness. Seward County has won four straight games, its longest winning streak of the season, after knocking off Dodge City, 87-64, at the Dodge City Civic Center last Saturday. The victory also marked the fourth straight win for SCCC over Dodge City. Three Lady Saints scored over 20 points, as sophomore All-American Tegan Cunningham (23 points) led the team in scoring for the 19th time this season, Stephani Rhoten collected her conference-high 20 points (12-of-12 free throws), and Amanda Pierson scored a career-high 22 points (10-of-14). Rhoten has now made 19 straight free throws in the last two games.

Hutchinson gave the Lady Saints their first conference loss of the season, 61-51, on Jan. 5, at the Hutchinson Sports Arena. The victory was just the second for Hutchinson over SCCC in the Sports Arena since 1995. Since 2000-2001, Seward County leads the overall series, 13-3, with a 6-1 record at the Green House, 6-2 record at the Sports Arena and a 1-0 mark in the Region VI Tournament.

In its last game out, Hutchinson went on the road and defeated No. 8 Cloud County (59-55) to claim a tie for first-place in the Jayhawk West Conference. The Lady Dragons were effective from the floor shooting 54 percent while shutting down Cloud County’s outside shooting with an 0-of-17 performance from 3-point range. HCC’s only conference loss came against Barton County at the Sports Arena (50-62) on Jan. 23.
