Both teams traded runs for the majority of the evening until right after the 10 minute mark of the second half when Ahmad Walker for the Cougars got loose in transition for a lay-up, was fouled, and Pratt's Khory Ross was whistled for a technical on top of that.

Hutch Defeats Men's Basketball 103-90

22 January 2015

The Pratt Community College men’s basketball team started out on fire last night in the Beaver Dome and built an early lead against the Hutchinson Blue Dragons, but soon after the Blue Dragons flipped the effort switch on the rebounding front, and by halftime Pratt found themselves down 10.

The Blue Dragons had more offensive rebounds than the Beavers had rebounds total in the first half. That coupled with some turnover problems led to a 103-90 victory for Hutch. The men are now 12-8 on the year, and 3-3 in conference.

The standings look like this:

Women's Basketball Defeated by Hutch 85-34

22 January 2015

"Hutch is very talented and we hung with them until the 4:00 minute mark of the first half," said Head Coach Stephanie Thompson. "The Dragons were able to build a 17 point lead to head into the break. The Beavers were having a very difficult time putting the ball into the basket most of the night, shooting just 19% from the field. The Dragons’ transition game and size proved to be too much for the Beavers."

The final score was 85-34.
