The Saints built an early 11-3 lead before the T-Birds bolted to a 28-18 lead and led the Saints 28-22 at halftime.  Cloud led 33-28 before the Saints went on a 22-5 run and held the Thunderbirds scoreless for about nine minutes.  Seward led 40-38 at the media timeout and led 50-38 with 4:50 to play.
The Saints prevailed on the road despite 1-14 shooting from three point range.  SCCC made just 33 percent from the field but held the T-Birds to 31 percent shooting and forced 29 Cloud turnovers.
Bee McCrary scored 16 for the Saints and had seven rebounds.  Kyle Cardaci has 11.
Seward is 6-2 overall and 1-1 in the Jayhawk.  Cloud is 5-4 and 0-2 in the Jayhawk.  The Saints host Allen Wednesday night at 8 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net.  Conestoga is the buyout sponsor with tickets also available at Hutch’s.
