Kee girls basketball team improves to 2-0 with 63-18 rout of Coulee Christian

The Kee girls basketball team continued its early-season roll with one of the most lopsided victories ever recorded in program history. The Hawks limited their guests from Coulee Christian High School out of Westby, WI to no more than eight points in any of the game’s four quarters on the way to a 63-18 pounding of the visiting Eagles.

The stingy Hawk defense swiped 19 steals from Coulee Christian, many of which played out to help Kee convert at just under a 43% efficiency from the field in the contest. That defensive effort was also played at a very efficient and effective level, as the Hawks committed just four fouls for the entire ballgame, leading to just a two-for-four effort for Coulee Christian from the free throw line.

“I told them I wanted to get through the second half without any fouls, but I forgot to mention that I wanted them to still play aggressive defense,” Kee girls basketball coach Dan Love said of his team’s nearly harmless play. “We let them get a few too many offensive rebounds because we were afraid of fouling. And the 35-point clock was rolling the entire second half, which is part of the reason we didn’t score as much.”
