The SEAS Eagles played St. John Notre Dame in the second round of the Presentation Tournament. SEAS beat SJND in the Presentation Tournament last year and in the St. Ignatius Tournament two years ago. SJND has a number of taller players. Watching the teams warm up, I was concerned because SEAS was short handed this weekend and missing their back-up center and a power forward.
Jack struggled with this shot. He was 0 for 4 from two point range. Jack added 7 steals, 3 rebounds and 2 assists with 3 turnovers and 3 fouls. He ended up playing only 13 minutes of the 24 minutes game.
My concerns about the taller SJND players were unnecessary. SJND did not have the guards to effectively use the big men. Addtionally, they struggled with full court pressure from the Eagles. SEAS ran out to a 13 to 4 first quarter lead and was never really seriously threatened.
SEAS won by the game by the score of 40 to 24. The box score is here.
The Eagles now have 5 wins and 2 losses for the season. The game log is here.
SEAS will face St. Ignatius in the championship game of the Presentation Tournament on Monday. They lost to St. Ignatius last week in the Jesuit Tournament.
