Barton Buries Seward in Conference Opener

KSCB News - January 7, 2013 6:36 am

Apparently Barton was due. After Seward had won seven straight against the Cougars, Barton dominated the Saints in an impressive 79-66 decision Saturday night in front of an announced crowd of two thousand in the Green House.

Barton was impressive in every phase of the game shooting 53 percent for the game and 63 percent in the second half while making 7-14 three pointers. Barton held the Saints to 37 percent shooting while the Saints were 12-25 at the foul line.

Seward trailed 34-30 at halftime and trailed by double digits most of the second half. Jabari Peters scored 17 while Kaheem Ransom added 12. Seward received very little production from their post players. Edson Avila fought foul trouble and scored four and Leslee Smith also scored just four.

The Saints are 9-6 while #9 Barton is 14-1 after the Jayhawk West Conference opener for both teams.

The Saints play at Colby Monday night at 8 p.m. on B107.5 and

Butler def Garden City 76-55*

D1#4 Hutchinson def Dodge City 89-85* OT
