Saints Extend Jayhawk West Lead

KSCB News - February 3, 2011 9:22 am

The Seward students chanted "overated" at the Hutchinson Blue Dragons during the closing seconds of #16 Seward’s 86-76 win over #8 Hutchinson Wednesday night in the Green House. The Dragons, picked to win the Jayhawk West may be overrated, or the Saints who defeated the number one team Missouri-West Plains by 12 last month may be vastly underated. The Saints won a physical rugged game to extend their lead to two games in the Jayhawk West. Hutch hit five of their first seven three pointers for a 26-15 lead. But the Saints out scored the Dragons 51-40 in the second half. Seward head coach Bryan Zollinger says his guys stood stall in adversity. "What I was proud of is we fought through the frustration. We fought through being behind. We found a way to get a 10 point win."

Rafriel Guthrie led the Saints (20-3, 8-1) with 16 points and seven rebounds. Jeremy Jones added 16. Daveon Boardingham added 14 points and seven rebounds. Marky Nolen recorded his sixth straight double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Marquez Patterson sparked the Saints in the second half with 11 points and four assists. Hutch falls to 20-3 overall and 6-3 in the Jayhawk West. Seward travels to Great Bend to play Barton Saturday night at 8 p.m. on B107.5 and kscbnews.net.
