Cloud County

On Saturday, Feb. 22 the Lady Saints made a long trip to take on Cloud County for their last conference away game. Although Seward jumped to a quick 5-0 lead on the scoreboard they had a bad start with their players. Korina Chapman rolled her ankle early in the game, and was not able to return to play. The Lady T Birds took advantage and went on a few scoring runs in the first half.  Luckily, the Lady Saints didn’t give up and finished the half strong.  Seward trailed by just four, 43-39 at halftime. In the third quarter, the Lady Saints tried to catch up. They were able to get to within 4 points late I the fourth, but because they were forced to foul, that was the closest they could do as Cloud hit their free throws. Seward ended up falling a little short. The Cloud County Lady T-Birds took the win 79-71. The loss dropped the Lady Saints to 9-4 in conference.  Rebekah Hatchard led the team with her career high 17 points, and Fabiana Monte had her first double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Barton

The Lady Saints hosted the Lady Cougars in the Green House on Wednesday, Feb. 19. Seward started off a little slow by only scoring 2 points in the first 3 minutes of the game.  A couple of three pointers by Fabiana Monte and Brianna Scott helped Seward take a lead, only to have Barton go on a 5-0 run of their own to keep the game close. Both teams were having trouble finding the hoop with Seward shooting 30 percent and Barton shooting 24 percent from the field as they went into halftime.  Seward held a six point with the score at 25-19.

Coming out of the half Barton appeared to start where they left off and quickly closed the Lady Saints lead to 2.  Korina Chapman grabbed a big rebound for Seward and scored.  This led to a big run by Seward and they started to create a gap in the score. The Lady Saints kept pushing until the end of the game. Seward defeated Barton 69-42. With this win the Lady Saints are guaranteed a place in the top 3 in the conference to ensure a first round home game in the playoffs.  Brianna Scott led the team with 14 points, and Shanice Brooks followed closely with 11 points againts the Lady Cougars.  The Lady Saints are now 9-3 in conference play.

Dodge City

The Lady Saints traveled to Dodge City on Saturday, Feb. 15 to take on Dodge City in the United Wireless Arena.  Seward was coming off a two game losing streak and were trying to redeem themselves with the basketball gods.  They were on a mission from tipoff to show why they are a highly ranked team.  Seward started the game with an early lead.  Seward used an inside attack to keep pushing that lead. At halftime Seward led Dodge City 44-34. The Lady Saints came out the second half ready to play. This half they used a balance attack of three pointers and inside shots to quickly turn that 10 point lead into a huge lead  by as many as 39.  The Seward Lady Saints easily defeated the Dodge Lady Conqs 92-55. Shanice Brooks had a big game with 24 points along with Korina Chapman who had a total of 13 rebounds to go along with her 17 points.  This helped the Lady Saints record as they go to an overall record of 23-4 and a conference record of 8-3.

Garden City

On Wednesday, February 12 the Garden City Lady Busters came to the Greenhouse to take on our Seward Lady Saints.  The last time Garden City came to the Greenhouse they escaped with a victory and were hungry to take another from the Lady Saints.  The Lady Saints did not get off to a good start. With Garden taking the early lead in the game, Seward was trying all they could to take it back.  However, a very cold night of shooting at just 33% and being turnover prone the Lady Saints were prevented from getting any rhythm going into the game.  Luckily for Seward they only trailed by one going into the half 32-31. Seward came out hoping for a Tale of Two Halves.  Unfortunately, Garden City quickly extended their lead, but what looked liked sluggish play on both ends enabled Seward to catch up.  It then became a battle until the very end. The game was tied with 1 minute left on the clock. Korina Chapman made a free throw to give the Lady Saints a 1 point lead. Garden City had the ball and made a basket with 2.6 seconds left on the clock which gave Seward no time to score.  Garden City defeated Seward 57-56. Shanice Brooks had a team high of 15 points, and Korina Chapman followed closely with 14 points for Seward. The Lady Saints fall to 7-3 in conference play with an overall record of 22-4 on the season.
