Tigers' Konrade liking his spot

Fort Hays State University senior guard Carson Konrade, a Spearville graduate, started his career at Colby Community College. The Colby coach always told Konrade to get to the corner.

"Same here," Konrade said. "When we are trying to run our secondary, he always says, 'Just get to the corner,' and so that's where I just happen to be most of the time when I shoot it."

The familiar spot has helped Konrade average 14.8 points per game, third best for the Tigers, and shoot a team-high 54.7 percent (29 of 53) from long range. Last Thursday, Konrade set a career-high with 30 points with many of the shots coming from the left wing.

"We didn't do a very good job," Central Missouri coach Kim Anderson said. "Him and (Dwayne) Brunson get on the same side, you have got to worry about Brunson. He shoots it well. We started messing around and playing zone a little bit, and we didn't do a good job of getting out to him. It's like we almost didn't believe he could shoot. I know he can shoot, 30 points -- he only missed three shots the whole night. I don't know if we will get to play again, but if we do, we are definitely going to guard him."

Konrade stands fourth in the MIAA in 3-point field goal percentage and second with 1.9 steals per contest.

"It would probably be my favorite spot, because I probably shoot it the most over there," Konrade said. "Anytime I can have open shots -- I just like open shots, any kind of shot."

Fort Hays lost two overtime road games to University of Central Missouri, 93-85, and Missouri Western State University, 82-79, last week. The Tigers dropped to 7-2, 0-2 MIAA and dropped out from No. 15 in the NCAA Division II poll. The MIAA men currently has no teams ranked in the top 25. Coach Mark Johnson had been 13-2 in overtime games entering this season.

"It's just numbers," Johnson said. "I don't think there is anything special about that. We have been fortunate, and (Thursday) Central Missouri was fortunate."

Fort Hays is off this week until a home game against Central Christian at 4 p.m. on Saturday at Gross Memorial Coliseum.

Lehman earns Player of the Week honors

FHSU junior center Kate Lehman averaged 20 points and 11.5 rebounds in two road games last week en route to MIAA Player of the Week honors. Lehman had 16 points and 11 rebounds in a loss to UCM last Thursday. On Saturday, she had 24 points, 12 rebounds and eight blocks in a victory against Missouri Western. Lehman has delivered four straight double-doubles.

Fort Hays is 6-1, 1-1 MIAA and is still receiving votes in the latest poll. The Tiger women don't play again until next Monday when they play host to University of St. Mary. Lehman currently stands eighth in the conference in scoring at 15.1 points per contest and leads the conference in rebounding (11.3) and blocked shots (5.6). No one else averages more than 1.8 blocks per contest.
