The Seabury Academy boys basketball team improved to 3-0 after coasting past Christ Prep on Tuesday.

Freshman Mikey Wycoff netted 24 points for the Seahawks and Jomain Rouser chipped in 15 to join him in doubles figures.

Seabury head coach Ashley Battles said despite his team leading by 20 for most of the game, he did not feel comfortable and saw a number of areas for improvement.

“We played great defense when we weren’t fouling, but that might have something to do with only playing three games so far,” Battles said.

The Seahawks take the court again on Thursday at Midland Adventist.

Seabury Academy girls basketball coach Keith Smith was confident that his team was going to come away with a victory with the Seahawks up by five points with 1:30 to go, but Christ Prep came back and won.

“We came from a first-quarter deficit and led until the last seven seconds of the game,” Smith said. “We had two starters foul out with 1:30 to play.”

Mariah Smith led the Seahawks (2-2) with 11 points.
