LJWorld.com Area Basketball Roundup

The Bishop Seabury boys basketball team set the tone in the first quarter.

After a 24-point first quarter, the Seahawks were in control throughout their 86-32 victory over Christ Prep Saturday afternoon at home. With the win, Bishop Seabury (No. 3 team in Class 2A) improved to 3-0 to start the season.

“Good team effort on both ends of the floor,” Bishop Seabury coach Jonathan Raney said. “Our pressure gave Christ Prep some problems and we were able to get some turnovers and easy baskets. Thought we were extremely active.”

Zach Bloch led the team in scoring, pouring in a game-high 28 points in the win. Luke Hornberger and Stavian Jones each finished with 19 points and 12 points, respectively. The Seahawks scored 24 points in each of the first three periods.
