Seward turned a three-point game at half into a rout with a strong start to the second half that ended with a 72-45 win over Northern Oklahoma Saturday night in The Green House.

The Saints opened the second half on an 8-0 run that stretched the lead to 33-20.

Daveon Boardingham, who had foul trouble and sat on the bench in the first half, finished strong but was called for a technical foul.

Seward coach Bryan Zollinger said he had the personnel to cover when an inside player like Boardingham was in foul trouble.

“If we have to play Brice Jenkins at the four spot, that’s ok,” Zollinger said. “We go to a four guard set. Sometimes it works to your advantage because it is hard to match up.”

Zollinger credited the second-half surge to a more patient attack.

“We talked about being more patient on offense,” he said. “We were forcing things in the first half. In the second half we were more patient, we reversed froms side to side. It was a good adjustment. Our guys finished stronger on the offensive end, and our defense picked up a notch or two. Northern Oklahoma didn’t get their second field goal until the 11 minute mark.”

The Saints stretched the lead to 30 in the second half, but Zollinger was able to clear his bench.

Deverell Biggs led the Saints with 14 points. Boardingham and Irvin Hollinger each had 11, and Jenkins added 10.
