Following their home victory over No. 8 Hutchinson on Wednesday, folks around the Seward County Men’s Basketball program grumbled lightly about Saturday night’s road matchup with Barton to be a trap game in which the Saints might be in store for a let down. 
They made it evident early that that was simply not going to be the case as they jumped in front of the Cougars early before blowing them out late 71-50 in the Barton Gymnasium to pick up their ninth straight win and remain atop the conference standings. 
Daveon Boardingham had a huge game off of the Seward bench, racking up 15 points and 15 rebounds while Marky Nolen joined him in the double double club on the night, his seventh straight, with 11 points and 11 rebounds. A pedestrian night for Jeremy Jones saw him score a game high 17 points as well as a game high six assists while Markee Mazyck took advantage of his starting opportunity with 12 points for the Saints.  Seward held Barton to just 29 percent shooting overall on the night while shooting 42 percent themselves. 
The win was number 100 for Saints Head Coach Bryan Zollinger who becomes the fastest Men’s Basketball Coach in school history to reach the number, doing so in just 127 games. 
Seward improves to 21-3 overall on the season and 9-1 in Jayhawk West play. The Saints win coupled with great news on the scoreboard Saturday night, with Hutchinson losing to Dodge City and Cloud County losing to Colby, Seward now has a full three game lead on the rest of the pack in the conference meaning that their magic number to clinch at least a share of the conference title is just three with six games to go.
