With both Seward County Head Coaches staring down
milestone win markers tonight in the Greenhouse their teams showed up
ready to win for them and that is just what they did as Coach Toby
Wynn's Lady Saints opened the night with a 73-57 win over the Dodge City
Lady Saints to give the 7th year Head Coach his 200th career win while
the Saints pounded the Conqs 62-42 to give Head Coach Bryan Zollinger
his 150th win at Seward County.
The Lady Saints got off to a quick 7-0 start against the
Lady Conqs and never looked back Saturday night. Seward led by as many
as 16 in the first half before going to the break on top 46-32. Dodge
hung around and hung around in the second half, cutting Seward's lead to
as little as 8, but the Lady Saints finished strong and came away with
the 73-57 win. Shanise Brooks led the Lady Saints with a career high 23
points to go along with 8 rebounds while Madison McLain notched her
second double-double of the season with 19 points and 11 rebounds.
The Saints were nearly perfect in the first half in
their matchup with the Conqs. They didn't allow Dodge City a basket
until nearly 5 minutes in and were on top 30-10 at the halftime break.
Seward held Dodge to just 5 first half field goals and 17% shooting in
the period. Unfortunately for the guys in purple it was much of the
same in the second half. Seward continued to stifle Dodge on the
offensive end and went up by as many as 31 before putting it in cruise
control and winning 62-42. The Saints forced 20 Dodge City turnovers
and held them to just 30% shooting on the night while keeping the
league's leading scorer Vic Adams to 13 points under his season average
on 4 of 18 shooting. Seward was led by Jabari Peters who scored 13 and
had 7 rebounds and Malcolm Hill-Bey who provided a spark off the bench
with 12 points and 4 steals. Brian Bridgeforth led the Saints with 9
rebounds on the night.
