Joplin, MO – After the conclusion of the Southwest Region Tournament the coaches held a meeting in which they discussed all the nominees for the All-Region team.
The Lady Bears were well represented with 3 women among the 11 chosen. Senior Kaylee Miller was ranked as the 3rd best player in the region and was awarded with a first team honor. Junior Brandi Moral and Sophomore Jamie Larsh were tabbed as second team All-Region.
Coach Lingafelter added, “It is great for these ladies personally and an acknowledgement to our program that they received the honor they did. Kaylee finishing as high as she did was great validation that coaches really place a high value on girls that go out and do whatever it takes to help the team win. Brandi and Jamie were very deserving as well. Jamie has been so consistent all year and Brandi has really taken her game to another level in the past few weeks. These three are great ambassadors of Barclay College and very deserving of all the accolades”
Joplin, MO – The Barclay Lady Bears went to Joplin, Mo to play in the Southwest Region Tournament this last weekend. The winner of this tournament is an automatic qualifier for the NCCAA DII National Tournament in Cincinnati, OH. The Lady Bears were the #4 seed and played #5 seed Ozark Christian College in the opening round.
Barclay came out and executed the offense and their pressure defense forced numerous Ambassador turnovers in route to the Lady Bears 71-54 victory. Junior Brandi Moral led the way with 19 points, followed by 14 points from Freshman Raelyn Epp and 13 points from Sophomore Jamie Larsh. Senior Kaylee Miller chipped in with another all-around game, adding 8 rebounds and 7 steals.
The next night the Bears faced off against nationally ranked and #1 seeded Hillsdale College. The Lady Bears came ready to play despite their lack of size in comparison to the Lady Saints. At the eight minute mark of the second half the Lady Saints had a four point lead and called a timeout to try and slow down the upset minded Barclay women. However the Lady Bears, for the first time all game, made some mistakes and found themselves down by 12 with 5 minutes left to play. They then regrouped and tried to make one last charge but the Lady Saints were able to hold off the Lady Bears and win by a score of 71-60. Brandi Moral had her best game of the year as she poured in 28 points. Kaylee Miller added 8 rebounds and 6 assists.
Coach Lingafelter reflected, “I am a competitive guy and I really hate losing. But we played well in both games! Our offense is really getting us some open looks and the defense has been very stingy for about a month now. This is a special group of ladies. The improvement they have shown this semester is a testament to the hard work they put in and the great team spirit they are building with each other.”
Joplin, MO – The NCCAA Southwest Region honored two Barclay College Men’s Basketball players over the weekend. Sophomore Charles Brodhead and Senior Toney Hatton were among the leaders in the region in the eyes of the region’s coaches.
Brodhead received first-team honors in a season where he has averaged 20 points, 7 rebounds and 2 steals per game.
Hatton missed being on the first-team by the narrowest margins and will complete his collegiate playing days as a second-team all-region member. He averaged 19 points and 5 rebounds per game before a season-ending injury on February 8th cut his season short.
“These guys are much deserving of the post-season recognition they have received. They are great players and it has been fun to see their progress both on and off the court over the years. I am very proud of them,” said Head Coach Royce Bryan. “Any time a team can have the type of success that we have had in the win column, there will be rewards and recognition that come with that success. These guys teammates deserve a ton of credit as well.”
Joplin, MO – The Barclay College Bears Men’s Basketball team was given the #3 seed in the five team NCCAA Southwest Region Tournament held on the campus of Ozark Christian this year. With the #3 seed, the Bears received a first round bye and went head to head with Arlington Baptist. The winner would advance to the championship game and keep their hopes alive for an automatic bid to the NCCAA Division II National Tournament.
The game was on Friday, February 22nd and the Bears came out lethargic. Arlington Baptist built an early double digit lead before the Bears cut it back down to single digits halfway through the first half. Arlington’s strong interior play and their ability to brake down the Bears off the dribble allowed them to stretch the lead all the way to 23 points by halftime and they never looked back.
Early in the second-half Arlington Baptist capitalized on multiple three pointers to stretch their lead even more and defeat the Bears 93-61. On Saturday afternoon they defeated Hillsdale Free Will Baptist by 26 points and will represent the Southwest Region in the NCCAA National Tournament in two weeks.
Sophomore Charles Brodhead led the Bears with 22 points and 10 rebounds as the Bears shot 34% from the field in comparison to a blistering 58% from Arlington Baptist.
The Bears (17-9, 8-2) will be the #5 seed in the ACCA Tournament beginning on Wednesday, February 27th. They face Faith Baptist at 9:00 PM CST.

Friday night in Joplin, MO the MCCC announced the recipients of the 2012-13 all-conference teams, among them were two members from Lady Bears squad and two members from the men’s team.
On the ladies side, Sophomore Jamie Larsh from Haviland, KS earned 2nd team all-conference recognition while Senior Kaylee Miller from Great Bend, KS was named all-conference honorable mention.
Larsh is a sharp-shooter who broke the school record for most made three pointers in a game (9). Miller, a defensive specialist and team leader, did a lot of the intangibles as the Bears locked up a third place finish during the MCCC regular season.
The men’s basketball team landed two of its players on the first team following an 8-2 run through the conference. Senior Toney Hatton from Irving, TX and Sophomore Charles Brodhead from Lompoc, CA were awarded plaques from the conference during a presentation prior to their semi-final match-up with Ozark.
Hatton shot a blistering 60% from the field as he averaged 18 points and 5 rebounds on the season playing the power forward position while Brodhead averaged 19 points and 7 rebounds playing the small forward position.
The Lady Bears post-season play began this weekend at the MCCC Tournament held in Joplin, MO.
Thursday night, the Lady Bears kicked off the tournament with a 61-40 win against the Ozark Ambassadors. This was the third time this season the Lady Bears were matched up against the Lady Ambassadors and they knew coming out with intense defense was a must in order to maintain control of the game.
Friday, the Lady Bears had to face nationally ranked Central Christian Bible College. The Barclay women’s team managed to stick with the Saints, playing virtually even with them through the first half and into the second before the Saints had an eight minute stretch where they took control of the game to win 67-48.
Saturday the Lady Bears found themselves competing against Faith Bible College for third place. In the first half, the Lady Bears allowed the Lady Eagles to stick around. After kicking up their defensive efforts in the second half the Lady Bears were able to put away the Eagles 52-34 and come home with the third place title.
Coach Brad Lingafelter concluded, “The girls played really well this weekend. Defensively we caused a lot of problems in all three games and offensively, it was the best we have looked this year.”
Next action for the Lady Bears will be at the NCCAA Southwest Regional Tournament hosted in Joplin, MO where they will face Ozark Christian on Thursday at 6:00PM CST.
