Grandview Christian 72, Bishop Seabury 57

Bishop Seabury dropped a 72-57 decision to Grandview Christian Tuesday night.

Chris Green and Stavian Jones each had 13 points to lead the way for the Seahawks. Zach Bloch, who hit a game-winner over Veritas last Friday, finished with 12 points. Luke Hornberger tallied 9 points to go along with 17 rebounds.

Miles Branch missed the game with a bruised hip, but is expected to be back for Thursday’s game against Cornerstone.

“Not disappointed that we lost, but definitely disappointed in the way we lost,” Bishop Seabury coach Jonathan Raney said. “Grandview Christian is a very deep, talented and well-coached team, but we gave up way too many points in transition, we let them outcompete us on the glass and we were way too soft with the ball.”
