It wasn’t easy, but the Saints will take it. There was a collective exhale from the Seward bench after a desperation Pratt three point attempt missed the basket. Seward beat the Beaver 86-83 Saturday afternoon in the Pratt Beaver Dome. The Saints led 42-36 at the half and led by nine on several occasions of the second half. Seward out rebounded Pratt 46-43 and won despite shooting 39 percent while Pratt shot 44 percent. Pierre Johnson had his best game as a Saint scoring 16 points with eight rebounds. Kevin Sims made big free throws down the stretch going 16-20 with 22 points. Spencer Franklin scored 15. Charles Beauregard had 13. Ernest Carter grabbed seven rebounds. It was Seward’s first win at Pratt since the 2012-13 season and their first conference win since February 13 over Barton. The Saints had lost eight consecutive conference games dating back to last year. Seward is 1-4 and 4-5 overall while Pratt is 0-5 and 2-6. Seward plays at Cowley Wednesday night at 7:30 on B107.5 and kscbnews.net.
