Bohuslavsky 'steady' for Tigers

Fort Hays State University sophomore point guard Beth Bohuslavsky collected all-MIAA honorable mention honors Monday, her first all-league award. Of the 32 players in the 14-team MIAA honored, Bohuslavsky had the lowest scoring average at 6.6 points per contest.

But the conference coaches respected Bohuslavsky's steady all-around play for the 20-7 Tigers, the No. 5 seed in the conference tournament, receiving votes in the NCAA Division II national poll and No. 10 in the Central Region.

"Leadership -- I kind of calm people down out there, step up when times are needed," Bohuslavsky said.

Bohuslavsky stands ninth at 3.3 assists per game, leads the conference and ranks second nationally with a 2.8/1 assist to turnover ratio. She has helped the Tigers commit the eighth-fewest turnovers in the country at 12.7 a contest.

The .6 difference between herself and second place Haley Parker of Emporia State University is the same between second and eighth. Coach Tony Hobson labeled Bohuslavsky's assist to turnover "exceptional."

"Anybody that plays against her understands that points aren't her game," Hobson said. "She is a game-manager, she is steady. She can make the big free throw."

Bohuslavsky leads the Tigers with 27.4 minutes played per game. She and junior Kate Lehman, a repeat first team all-league selection and MIAA Defensive Player of the Year, are the lone Tigers to start all 27 contests.

"I am not so much worried about all those awards," she said. "I just want to play and get the 'W,' that's how I am. I am honored that coaches honored me for this award. It's a great award to get. Hopefully, I can get higher as I continue my two years here."

Bohuslavsky has delivered several strong games in the last three weeks, including 14 points, her second-highest total of the year, in an 88-68 first round MIAA tournament victory against University of Nebraska-Kearney on Monday.

In the Tigers' current four-game winning streak, Bohuslavsky has 38 points with 12 assists against five turnovers.

"Beth is a great shooter, and I feel like she should shoot more often," sophomore guard Chelsea Mason said. "Because I trust her, and I know she is going to make it, and I know she is going to take good shots."

Bohuslavsky has noticed her defender has often doubled on Lehman, who averages 16.6 points, 11.4 rebounds and 5.4 blocks per contest, all team-highs. Bohuslavsky has had an attack mentality, which has opened up lanes.

"Most of the time, when I get down into the lane, I dish out or give it to Kate, but now they are starting to realize that, and now I have a layup," she said. "I have been taking advantage of that."

A strong game from Bohuslavsky could help the Tigers in a likely must-win for the NCAA Division II tournament on Thursday against fourth-seeded Missouri Southern State University in the conference tournament quarterfinals. Start time is 2:15 p.m. at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo. FHSU lost 76-71 at Missouri Southern in the team's lone meeting Jan. 4.

"We can honestly beat Southern, but we want to honestly win the conference tournament championship, so that's what we are aiming for," Mason said.

Four Lions collected all-league honors, paced by senior forward Dominique Mosley, a first team selection and the team's leading scorer at 15.3 points and 7.2 rebounds. In league play, Southern led the league with 45.1 field goal shooting.

"They are physical, and they are very athletic," Hobson said. "I don't know if we are going to have to be flawless, but we are going to have to be pretty sharp to beat them. They are a good, solid team. They too have a good bench, and they have two good big kids."

Bohuslavsky had one of her weaker games when she finished 1 of 5 from the floor for six points with one assist and one turnover.

Fort Hays led 63-55 with just over eight minutes left, but Southern went on a 21-8 run to close out the contest. FHSU finished 13 of 25 (52 percent) from the foul line and the Lions were plus-4 on the glass.

"Every loss is going to leave a bad taste, especially when we are up," Bohuslavsky said. "We had the game won. We didn't make free throws. We got outrebounded. Those things hurt. They are daggers to the heart, so hopefully we can just make free throws, don't get outrebounded, and hopefully we get the W."
