2012 PAL Varsity Comp SEAS versus St. Ignatius
The SEAS Eagles played St. Ignatius in the Championship game of the Presentation Tournament. They have struggled to best this team over the last three seasons. SEAS lost to St. Ignatius in the semi-final game of the Jesuit Tournament last week. SEAS did not face St. Ignatuis last season, but lost to St. Ignatius in the finals of the St. Ignatius Tournament two years ago.
Jack played 23 minutes of the 28 minute game. He had 9 points on 3 for 8 from two point range and 1 for 2 from three point range. Jack added 6 rebounds and 1 assist with 3 turnovers. He was the SEAS leading scorer and rebounder for the game. In a different defensive twist, they had him guarding St. Ignatius' best player at the top of the key one on one most of the first half.
The Eagles kept the game close through three quarters. St. Ignatius led by the score of 20 to 15 at half-time and 29 to 22 at the end of the third quarter. SEAS went on a five minute scoring drought in the fourth quarter and got outscored 14 to 6. Like last week's game, turnovers and three point shooting killed the Eagles; they had 19 turnovers against only 2 steals and shot 2 for 12 from three point range.
SEAS lost the game by the score of 43 to 28. The box score is here.
The Eagles took home the second place trophy. The boys were not satisfied with the result... Jack and Joe were named to the All Tournament Team.
The Eagles now have 5 wins and 3 losses for the season. The game log is here. Two of the losses have been to St. Ignatius.
The Eagles play St. Roberts on Friday in a league game.
