The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Eagles played the first game of a double elimination basketball tournament at St. Charles; the tournament is scheduled to last through Sunday. They played against St. Patrick's. One of the players on the other team, Cooper, has played baseball with Jack over the last year and a half on the Gunners, LYB All-Stars and Outlaws. Additionally, Cooper's dad, Rod, is one of the assistant coaches for St. Patrick's. The Eagles will face St. Patrick's again in a league game in February.
Jack played 10 minutes of the 24 minute game. He had 4 points on 2 for 5 from the field and 0 for 1 from the free throw line. Jack added two assists and one steal.
With the Eagles pulling away from St. Patrick's and the team potentially having to play five games in the next six days, the coaches rested the starters and played the bench extensively.
SEAs won the game by a score of 52 to 18. I think Cooper probably had 14 of the 18 points for St. Patrick's. The box score for the game is here.
The Eagles will play St. Albans in the second round of the tournament on Thursday night. They beat St. Albans in the first round of the St. Ignatius tournament in December.
