The Seward County Saints ran into a proverbial buzz saw Wednesday night in Dodge City. The Dodge City Conquistadors, who had been ranked throughout the season, had lost three straight. But the losses were at Cowley, home with Coffeyville, and at Hutchinson. The Conqs took out those frustrations on a shaky Seward team 92-67 in the Dodge City Civic Center.
The Conqs jumped to an early lead of 18-6. The Saints used a 6-0 push to make it 18-12. The games would never be that close again. DC3 led 32-14 and 41-21 before bolting into the halftime lockeroom with a 52-31 lead. A Seward program which typically allows about 68 per game, allowed 52 in a half. The Conqs led by as many as 34 on the way to the win.
DCCC shot 56 percent from the field and forced SCCC into 24 turnovers. Dodge City led fast break points 34-13. Mike Rivera scored a season high 11 points in the loss. The Saints cleared the bench as one Saint played for the first time this season and another Saint played for the second time this season.
Seward falls to 2-5 and 0-5 on the road. Dodge City snaps a six game losing streak against SCCC and improves to 7-3 and 6-3 in the Jayhawk. Seward hosts Hutchinson at 6 Saturday night in the Green House with Saints Shoot-around at 5:45 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net.
