Comanche ends drought with win over Riverside

COMANCHE — Senior Hannah Suson scored 13 points and hit three three-point shots to lead Comanche to a 56-39 win over Riverside Indian school in the first round of the consolation bracket.

The victory broke an eight-game losing streak for the Indians (11-14) who will face the loser of Thursday night’s game between No. 6 Meeker and No. 9 Heritage Hall at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

Three Indians, Suson, junior Juli Ledford and sophomore Aimee Watson, finished with 10 or more points. It was the first time since Jan. 23 versus Bray-Doyle that the team had topped 50 points. Coach Sean Hushbeck was pleased that his team, and Suson in particular, could get back on the right track offensively.

“She just hasn’t gotten them strung together in games,” Hushbeck said. “This is her last home game and I think she played a little more determined. I’m glad for her.”

Suson said that just playing hard when she got opportunities to influence the game led to her shots going in.  It was a relief to her to pull out the victory and insure that the seniors’ last game on Comanche’s court wasn’t their last game ever.

In order for the team to keep winning, though, she said everyone has to get involved.

“We have to do it as a team, that’s what got us there tonight,” Suson said. “It takes all of us.”

While Hushbeck gave Suson the offensive mvp nod for the win, he said senior Payge Graham’s defense on Raegan Swiftwater was crucial. Swiftwater, regarded by Hushbeck as Riverside’s best player, finished with just four points.

Graham said that staying aggressive worked for her when guarding Swiftwater.

“We played really hard defense on her, because she’s the person who scores for her team,” Graham said.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
