If good teams win even when they struggle, then Seward County might have proven they are a good team Saturday in a 71-59 win over Garden City at the Perryman Center.

The Lady Saints have always struggled to shoot in Garden City, and Saturday was no exception.

The Lady Saints only made 39 percent of their shots and only 2 of 11 three point attempts, but they were still able to escape with the win.

The Lady Saints had a nine-point lead at half, but Garden City jumped out early in the second half and reduced the lead to 36-35 in the first two minutes.

Seward went on a 12-2 run of their own to stretch the lead back to  double digits, and after Korina Chapman was fouled on a basket and made the free throw, the Lady Saints had stretched out to a 14-point lead, 55-41.

Garden City got the lead back to single digits once in the final five minutes, but the Lady Saints were abel to keep the Lady Broncbusters from making a solid run down the stretch to secure the 71-59 win.

Chapman and Alana Simon led the Lady Saints with 14 points each.

Three other Lady Saints (Shanise Brooks, Payton Fleming and Kyndal Davis) each had 10.

The No. 9 Lady Saints (16-1, 1-0) will head to Colby (2-15, 0-1) Wednesday and will open Jayhawk West action at home Saturday in a national top 10 clash when No. 3 Hutchinson (15-0, 1-0) makes a trip to the Greenhouse.
