Toby Wynn knows the problem. After a sluggish loss to South Plains 75-63 Friday night and a slow first half Saturday night (led Frank Phillips 21-20 at the half), Seward's head coach knew his team was up tight. After a time out several minutes into the second half, the team seemed to collectively exhale and out scored Frank Phillips (2-6) 39-18 in the second half and won 60-38 in the Green House. Wynn says his young team lacked confidence. "I think that's a product of me and how I've been coaching this team," Wynn said of his team playing uptight. "It's probably taken me the hard game last night and the first half today to realize that. Hopefully I'll be able to find the right buttons to push and the things to do to get them to play at a relaxed level that we all know they are capable of playing at. They are all good players. They wouldn't be here if they weren't."
Mariah Lee scored 28 points and grabbled eight rebounds. Ashlynn Knoll added 12 points and 10 rebounds. Seward held the Lady Plainsmen to 25 percent shooting and out rebounded Frank Phillips 53-40.
