The Saints led throughout the second half. Isiah Small scored 16 points and 13 rebounds. Ke’Sean Davis scored 16 and was ejected from the game for a technical.
Seward is 10-4 overall which surpasses last year’s win total for nine. The Saints is 6-4 in the Jayhawk and is two games behind first place Hutchinson, Barton, and Cowley. Indy is 7-6 and 4-6 in the Jayhawk. Seward plays at Colby at 8 Saturday night on 107.5 and kscbnews.net.
