Toby Wynn says his team isn’t there yet. The head coach was much more pleased with his team’s effort Saturday than Friday in a 71-61 loss to 10-0 New Mexico Junior College in Garden City. Wynn says his team is getting there. "We’re just not their yet," Wynn said. "We show flashes and we play well at times. Offensively, we have too many little mistakes and times when we don’t give people the ball in the right spots and we make some bad decisions and some bad passes. But if we’ll practice with the kind of effort we gave today. We can get there. All of our kids have to understand that. We’re playing with a bunch of kids who have never played in this kind of environment against these types of players before and they are getting an eye opening experience against some of the best teams in the country."
This was a nip and tuck game until the last several minutes. Seward led by eight (17-9) in the first half and led 36-32 in the second half. Seward had 25 turnovers but out rebounds the Lady Thunderbirds 47-35. Mariah Lee fought off foul trouble for 18 points and seven rebounds in just 19 minutes. Autumn Miller scored 13 and nailed 3-5 three point shots. Seward faces Otero and Lamar in Lamar next weekend.
