Seabury boys win

February 10, 2010


Seabury Academy’s boys basketball team emerged from its most physical game of the season with a victory against Wetmore, 58-45, Tuesday at Seabury.

“It was very physical, but we stayed poised,” Seabury coach Mike Harding said. “We were down by 6 at half and came back and won by 13.”

Reed Grabill led the way for the Seahawks with 21 points, 15 rebounds and four steals. Skylar Malone chipped in 19 points, 8 rebounds, 5 steals and four blocked shots. Bill Gibbs added 15 points.

The Seahawks committed just five turnovers. The only thing they couldn’t do, it seems, was hit a long shot — they went just 2-for-23 from beyond the arc.

Seabury (9-3) and will play Friday at Elwood.

Congratulations Coach, you are successful and winning games. Obviously, you must be replaced...

Congrats coach for winning games and parents keep your traps shut because obviously the coach is doing something right.

Awesome job coach...what a class-act coach to keep coaching with disgruntled parents in the stands (taking the high road is a lot better than what those parents and AD did!) Keep it up, Coach Harding!

Seabury basketball has developed quite a following.

This isn't rec summer baseball, but it still seems like a situation where a couple of adults can ruin everything for the kids. Good job Coach and most of the team sticking together and playing through all of this.

We can assume what the reasons are that the coach isn't coming back, but we can't know for sure. I don't think the coach would be fired just because of one incident. There's probably some other stuff behind the scenes that we don't know about. If there is, then we should applaud the AD for doing the right thing and not letting it slide just because they're winning.

I'm confused, too. If a player is not good and should be sitting on the bench then how could he be the leading scorer for a winning team? Someone who couldn't make a basket might be the leading scorer if the rest of the team is as bad or worse at scoring, but I'd bet the team would lose a lot of games. Seabury has a winning season, so saying that their leading scorers shouldn't be getting playing time doesn't make much sense to me.

The comments are in reference to a previous incident. Coach Harding was dismissed last week by the AD because of complaints by a select few parents.

It was never reported why exactly he was dismissed. It said that "people" weren't happy. That could be the headmaster, players, the AD, or parents. It's unfair to assume that it was "select parents." Plus that information came from the coach. The school hasn't said what the motivation is behind it.

Just anyone on the team except for two players.
