Seward head coach Toby Wynn threw everything but the kitchen sink at South Plains in an 87-69 win Tuesday. After watching them dismantle Monroe 85-73 the day before, Seward used several defensive schemes including a triangle in two to force the Lady Texans into 36 percent shooting Tuesday afternoon in the Rip Griffin Center at the NJCAA Tournament in Lubbock.
SPC raced out to an 8-0 lead and led 17-16 after one quarter. Seward led 46-42 at halftime and outscored the Lady Texans 23-12 in the third. Mollie Mounsey hit six three’s and scored 26. Neidy Ocuane score 21 with just one turnover. She injured her knee late in the game. The severity of the injury is not known but she joined her team on the bench for the final moments of the game. Joanna Grymek had 16 points and 11 rebounds.
In Seward’s seventh trip to the NJCAA Tournament, they have won their first round game each time. The Lady Saints are 32-2 and South Plains finishes 28-6. Seward faces top seed Gulf Coast State Thursday at 1 with Saints Shoot-around at 12:45 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net.
