Saints Grab Conference Win in Pratt

Brock Kappelmann - November 27, 2016 9:49 am

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.
