Georgi Funtarov scored 17 points in his Seabury Academy debut, but the Seahawks fell to St. James, 50-38, in high school boys basketball Saturday night at Seabury.
“It was a dogfight,” said Seabury coach Ashley Battles, whose team was tied with St. James 22-all at halftime.
Khadre Lane scored nine points, and Garrett Gillett added eight points for Seabury.
“The best player on the floor for us was Jesse May,” Battles said. “It’s strange. He scored zero points, and the guy he was guarding scored 19 points. But he really guarded him well. He did a great job. He really did.”
May led the Seahawks with 12 rebounds.
On Friday, Seabury (2-4) will host Wichita Word of Life.
“We’re looking forward to that one,” Battles said. “It will be the first time this year we’ve had everyone eligible to play.”
