Seward County head basketball coach Bryan Zollinger said after the game that his team played with heavy hearts Saturday night in their 85-67 win over Colby. Seward guard Robert Sigala didn't make the trip to Colby after his 13 year old brother passed away Friday losing a short bout with cancer. Sigala wasn't in Colby but was on his teamates' minds. Many wore red wrist bands before the game to remember their teamates' little brother. Seward improves to 19-6 overall and 6-5 in the Jayhawk West and sits alone in fourth place.
