Bishop Seabury’s boys basketball team will head into the postseason with plenty of momentum.
The Seahawks cruised to a 70-46 road win over Pembroke Hill on Thursday in the regular-season finale. Bishop Seabury (18-2, No. 1 in Class 2A) enters the postseason on an 11-game win streak; the Seahawks haven’t lost since Jan. 25.
“Thought it was a very tough, gritty effort from the boys,” BSA head coach Jonathan Raney said. “The first half we really competed on the defensive end and made things difficult for them. We did a decent job of stopping them in transition, and we knew that would be key.”
After falling in a 14-12 deficit in the first quarter, Bishop Seabury scored 18 points in the second quarter and posted 40 combined points in the second half. The Seahawks won 15 of their 18 games by double digits this season while being ranked No. 1 in Class 2A since the preseason.
Stavian Jones led BSA with a 22-point effort in the final game before postseason play. Joao Carlos Ramirez poured in 21 points, while Zach Bloch finished with 17.
BSA will face the winner of Kansas City Christian and Heritage Christian on Tuesday in the opening round of substate action.
