LJWorld.com Area Basketball Roundup

Bishop Seabury rolled to its second consecutive win over an area team, defeating Baldwin by a 75-61 margin during the opening round of the Baldwin Invitational.

The Seahawks (8-1), who needed a buzzer beater to take down Veritas in their previous game, relied on four double-digit scorers to roll to a 14-point win Tuesday night at BHS. Stavian Jones led the team with 27 points, while Miles Branch scored 16. Zach Bloch and Luke Hornberger each added 12 points.

“I thought Stavian was really good tonight,” Bishop Seabury coach Jonathan Raney said. “He was very active defensively and it led to some easy transition points. He did a good job of attacking the basket.”

Baldwin (1-9) allowed 36 total points in the second and third quarter. In a losing effort, Jordan Barth scored 22 points. Baldwin will now move to the consolation side of the bracket, as it faces Wellsville at 4 p.m. Friday.
