Lady Saints Wear Down Cloud

KSCB News - February 15, 2010 12:00 am

Seward forced 23 turnovers and only committed 11 of their own in a 78-66 win over Cloud at Bryant Gymnasium in Concordia Saturday night. Rachel Barnes scored 24 of her 29 points during the second half of Seward’s first win at Cloud since 2007. Seward head coach Toby Wynn says that win is satisfying. “I’m really proud of our team’s effort tonight,” Wynn said. “I thought they stuck with what we wanted to do the entire game and did a good job of executing our game plan in a tough environment. It’s tough to win up here so we’re definitely going to enjoy it.” Seward led the ‘points off turnovers’ category 21-9. Vaneza Junior had five steals and 11 points. Kendra Spresser and Nadia Rosario added 10 a piece. Seward led 38-34 at the half but trailed by four (46-42) early in the second half before Barnes hit a three to begin her scoring rampage. Seward led from about the 13 minute mark on. Wynn says his team’s conditioning paid off. “I thought our conditioning and weight lifting paid off,” Wynn said. “I thought our constant pressure on their guards paid off and gave us some run outs. I thought we wore them down that last 10 minutes.” The Lady Saints continue to command the top of the Jayhawk West race with a record of 25-2 overall and 12-1 in the conference. Cloud loses their first home game and falls to 23-3 overall and 9-3 in the conference. Seward hosts Dodge City Saturday night for homecoming in the Green House on B107.5 and
