Seward built a 51-45 lead at #1 Hutchinson Wednesday night in the Hutchinson Sports Arena.

The Dragons have a two game lead over the Saints and Barton after eight games in the conference schedule.

Hutch dominated the glass outrebounding the Saints 51-34. Edson Avila scored 20 in the loss and Leslee Smith added 14 while Kaheem Ransom and Malcolm Hill Bey scored 13 a piece and Jabari Peters had 12.

The Saints built an early 19-4 lead by getting the ball inside. Smith and Avila were a combined 17-21 for the field but Seward struggled from three point range going 1-14.
