LIBERAL, Kan.- Seward County Community College men’s basketball team defeated Garden City Community College 85-73 on Wednesday night. The Saints improve to 14-10 overall and 7-8 in conference play and one game back from Hutchinson for the fourth spot in the Jayhawk West.
The first half Seward shot 7-13 from behind the three-point line and 55% from the field to take a 44-30 lead into halftime. The second half the Saints would be in a free throw battle with the Broncbusters, as the foul total for both teams quickly got into the bonus. Seward shot 11-22 from the free-throw line in the second half, the Broncbusters shot 19-24 and used this to get back into the game. With a nine-point lead, Roy Clarke knocked down a three and got fouled to expand the lead back into double-digits. Seward kept Garden City from a late run to secure the road victory and remain in the hunt for a home playoff game.
The Broncbusters were led by Tahlik Chavez with 19 points and four rebounds.
