Five Saints scored in double figures as Seward shot nearly 62 percent from the field on the night in the Saints 101-56 route over Labette Saturday night at the Green House.
Seward came out hot right out of the gate and went into half up 18, 45-27.
The Saints were excited to take the floor following the Labette women’s team win over the Lady Saints, and their celebration at mid-court following the contest.
The Saints made it clear early, who’s house it was. The tone was set early. Saints post Latiq Agard voiced down low, “These guys got nothing,” prior to an inbounds pass from Tony Smith under their basket. The inbounds pass then went to Agard for a quick two, and the Saints were off.
Jon Tassin played to his potential and dropped 18 on Labette along with six boards. Tony Smith scored 15 as Marcus James Donte McCarter each added 13. Marky Nolen reached double figures with 11.
“We have a team full of offensive weapons,” Tassin said. “Every night we come out almost there’s a different leading scorer, we just have that much talent this year and we’re deeper than we were last year.”
The Saints moved to 10-3 and still remain atop the conference.
“I think if you compare this team to last year’s, this team, we’re smarter,” Tassin said. “We’re tougher, and everybody is on the same page, we want to win. We want to get to regionals and get that regional championship.”
