Playing their fourth game in four days, the SEAS played OLA in the third place game of the Jesuit Jr. Classic. The Eagles did not face the Cougars last year, but were knocked out of the play-offs by OLA in 2010.
For the first time in five games, Jack did not score. He was 0 for 3 from 2 point range and 0 for 1 from 3 point range. Jack added 7 rebounds, a steal and a block with 2 turnovers and 2 fouls. He played 21 minutes of a 28 minute game.
The Eagles led by the score of 19 to 17 at half-time. Late in the third quarter, OLA opened a 6 point gap that the Eagles were never able to close. SEAS lost to OLA by the score of 38 to 30. The box score is here.
The Eagles hurt themselves in a number of key areas. Their two centers went 1 for 18 from point blank range. Combined with 2 for 11 from three point range, 2 for 8 from the free throw line and 20 turnovers, the Eagles were lucky the game was as close as it was. They are athletic enough to compete with all of the other top teams, but they are going to have to improve in these areas if they want to go deep in the play-offs at the end of the year.
The Eagles now have 3 wins and 2 losses for the season. The game log is here.
The Eagles next play Friday night in the Presentation Tournament.
