SEQUOYAH-The Sequoyah Chiefs had a career night from Shon Stevens in route to their 85-69 win over the visiting Coalfield Yellow Jackets. Stevens netted 29 points for a career high, hitting five of six from behind the arc.
Sequoyah started out fast, against Coalfield, jumping ahead 20-11 after the first quarter. Stevens hit three from deep to start the game, and that hot shooting set the tempo. Taylor Hawkins added to the first half lead, by scoring seven of his 16 points in the second quarter.
With Hawkins and Stevens hitting shots, the Chiefs became a little complacent.
Chiefs head coach Daniel Curtis says the Coalfield comeback was his fault. вЂњI let up on them. We backed off and they came back. It was just bad coaching,вЂќ said Curtis.
Luckily the Chiefs were too far in front to fall behind.
Andrew Millsaps scored 12 points while J.J. Harmon had four off the bench. Braden Strickland had four points while Seth Schaffer nailed a three-pointer late the game. Trevor King, who started, also netted two points
