Pratt Puts Away Seward

Seward may need to start packing their bags for the first round of the Region 6 Tournament. The likelihood of a first round home game is reduced greatly after Seward’s 84-73 loss at the Pratt Beaver Dome Saturday night. They fall deeper into the bottom four and further from the top four in the Jayhawk West with the loss.
The Beavers jumped on the Saints early building a 19-9 lead. The Saints used a 20-8 run to lead 29-27 and trailed 37-36 at halftime. Pratt came out ready to play in the second half building leads of 47-38, 53-40, and 58-46. Seward cut the lead to six (58-52). But they never got any closer. The
Saints struggled to protect the rim as the Beavers shot 48 percent from the field. Pratt bullied SCCC on the boards out rebounding the Saints 40-24. The Saints shot 43 percent and made 9-26 three pointers.
Branton McCrary had 21 points while Kyle Cardaci had 12, Roy Clarke added 11, and Surakata Jawara had 10.
Seward has lost three of their last four and falls to 14-11 and 7-9 in the KJCCC West. Pratt is 16-9 and 10-6. Seward now trails fourth place Hutchinson by two games but currently loses the head to head tie breaker and is three games behind third place Pratt. Seward hosts Dodge City Monday night at 8 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net. Bank of Beaver City is the game sponsor.
