The Saints shot 44 percent while Barton shot 57 percent and mad 58 percent (15-26) of their three’s. The Saints were 12-22 from three point land in the loss. Barton maded 31-40 free throws and Seward was 29-35 at the line. The Cougars out rebounded the Saints 38-30. The Saints only turned the ball over nine times in the loss.
Kevin Sims scored 32 on 9-18 shooting to lead the Saints. Charles Beauregard had 19 points and nine rebounds. Pierre Johnson had 11 points with four assists.
