Saints Hang On at Neosho

Brock Kappelmann - January 12, 2020 6:41 am

At long last.  For the first time since November 30, the Seward County Saints have a Jayhawk Conference win.  On a snowy day in Chanute, the Saints fell behind 16 in the first half but rallied to win 68-64 Saturday at Panther Gym in Chanute.
Seward fell behind 32-16.  But despite making 6-11 three pointers in the first half, Neosho only led 35-33 at halftime.  Seward used a 17-3 run into the halftime locker room.  Seward led 63-56 with 3:12 to go and 65-58 with 2:00 to play.
The Saints won despite 22 turnovers.  SCCC shot 46 percent and made 7-17 from three point range.  Fortunately for the Saints, Neosho was 13-25 at the foul line.
Greg Johnson scored 21 points which included a ferocious break away dunk late in the game.
The Jayhawk East certainly has Seward’s number.  The Saints went 2-5 against the KJCCC East. However, the five losses came by a combined 13 points at the end of regulation.
The Saints are 9-6 and 2-5 in conference.  Neosho is 7-9 and 3-4 in the Jayhawk East.  The Saints move on to Jayhawk West play now.  The Saints host Garden City Monday night at 8 on 107.5 and kscbnews.net.  Flooring America and Furniture Outlet and Seaboard are the game sponsors.
