Veritas boys basketball defeats Bishop Seabury

The Veritas boys basketball team earned bragging rights by besting Bishop Seabury for a 71-46 home win Friday night in the latest crosstown clash.

Playing in its new home gym, Veritas faced a 14-13 deficit after one quarter before storming back to take control of the contest. The Eagles poured in 27 points in the second period, while holding the Seahawks to just 10 points over that span.

It was all Veritas after that.

Will Rau flirted with a triple-double by posting 11 points, nine assists and eight rebounds. Jordan Donaldson was the only other Eagle to finish in double figures during a 10-point effort.

Stavian Jones led Bishop Seabury in its first game of the season. He scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field. The Seahawks went 17-for-32 from the floor, which included a 3-of-10 showing from long range. BSA also coughed up 13 turnovers in the loss.
